First Doctor's Appointment

Okay, so I had my first doctor's appointment today. Sorry if long and TMI, but I copied it from another board.
First, my stomach was feeling terrible before the appointment, so I had to use the bathroom a couple times before even getting there. So, I get there and they want me to pee in a cup, and I barely get anything out --- and I seriously started freaking out!! LOLOL I assume it was the emotions with being back in the office for being PG again, but I felt like such an idiot.
So, the doctor comes in and asks how I'm doing. I tell her that I'm nauseous all the time, tired, etc.. She's like "okay, well when's you're due date?....Oh, July 24th?" And I look at her like WTF?? I then told her I had a miscarriage in December, and that I was in for a second pregnancy. She looked so embarrassed! Apparently the early pregnancy clinic I went to when I had the m/c didn't fax the doctor's office the documents :P
Anyway, after that, we just talked about how I'm feeling, any questions I have, figured out my *new* due date (Nov. 24th). I told her that I still have the prescription she gave me last time to help with nausea, but I haven't started taking it because I'm worried that a) maybe it caused my m/c last time and b) I like feeling sick because it means the baby is still there. She re-iterated how safe the medication is, that it's MEANT for PG women, and that nothing I did was my fault to cause the m/c. I feel better about things, but I'm still weary of taking the medication.
At the end, she gave me a sheet to get blood work done (I couldn't do it today, because the blood clinic was closed for some reason), and she's going to schedule and u/s appointment for me in the next 1-2 weeks, and then I should get a full physical done at the end of April.
So that's it - I feel okay about things, but I'll feel better once I have the u/s done and (fingers crossed) everything looks good.
