First OB Appointment

I just got back from my first OB appointment. It was a bit upsetting being back there with my miscarriage still kind of fresh in my mind. Especially when I passed the bathroom where I bled profusely and asked the receptionist if I needed to go to the ER. Even though I decided to go to a new OB they work out of the same office so that couldn't be avoided if I wanted full insurance coverage. Anyway, after going though all that first appointment stuff with the family history questions, weight (my shoes weigh 20lbs...I'm convinced of this fact), and blood pressure I got a little goodie bag. Since my first OB appointment was after my miscarriage I missed out on this last time so it's cool to have. I have a lot of information to sort though! I asked if I could have an early ultrasound to put my mind at ease and they were totally understanding about this. Understanding enough to make me cry...not that I don't cry at the drop of a hat lately, but still. I met my OB whose name is...Micheal Jackson! I know. I'm proud of myself that I didn't ask him if he could moonwalk because you know I wanted to! He seemed really nice except he's like walleyed or something so it's hard to make eye contact. I'll try not to hold that against him. He's delivered tons of babies so it doesn't seem to negatively effect his job performance.
The awesome bottom line here is I have an ultrasound scheduled for 3/12 --> this Thursday morning!!! I'm so nervous and I'm just praying that everything is ok and I get a good look at my baby and the heartbeat!
