We had our first OB appt with Dr. Becker in Wellsboro today! I was so nervous – of course I threw up this morning – but I’ve been throwing up every morning. I didn’t want to go – I just wanted to cancel and pretend that everything would just be fine. Out appt was at 7.45 am so I picked up J from work and we made it right on time. We went through the medial history of both of us and then came the real stuff!
Dr. Becker came in and asked some more questions. I wanted 3 things from today’s appointment – have been praying for 3 things.
1. I cut down my medication to 10 mg a night. I tried to go off it completely and literally could not function. I did the research – prayed about it – and researched some more. I feel confident that being on such a low dosage will be safe and fine. Dr. Becker agreed – thank you Jesus!
2. I needed to hear a heartbeat. Even if it was just a few seconds – I needed to hear it! Because we are so early – it was tough to get – we could hear mine and only mine. Then – really quick – but so fast and clear – we could hear the woosh woosh woosh woosh of OUR BABY! We only found it twice – but it was there and strong! Jared and I both cried – couldn’t even look at each other without crying!
3. I really wanted to see our baby – that memory of a blank screen is so vivid in my memory – I needed to be able to open my eyes and see our baby! To get a firm due date – Dr. Becker scheduled an US for Monday at 1.30!
I prayed for 3 things and each of those prayers were answered! Praise Jesus!
Everything looks good so far – they took 8 vials of blood – EIGHT! I got a flu shot and our next appt is November 19th at 4 pm!
20 weeks will be DECEMBER 25th – WHAT A CHRISTMAS PRESENT – we will find out if we are having a Fitzgerald Douglas or an Isa Samantha!
I feel so much better – like I can breathe and really be excited – and go buy some new clothes – cus my jeans aren’t cutting it anymore!
Thank you so much everyone – for your prayers – your thoughts – your tears – your excitement – EVERYTHING! I love all of you more than you know!
I cannot wait to have a baby shower and invite every single one of you!
