Well, I know that’s a matter of opinion, but I’m now a normal OB/GYN patient. On Friday I will have a plain, old Dr’s appointment. I’ll give my medical history, let them draw some blood. But no invasive ultrasounds! Nope, just a normal, first OB appointment.
When the nurse told me they would draw blood to confirm the pregnancy, I thought about offering to bring her in my pretty little ultrasound picture, but didn’t want her to think I was sassy. At least not yet. There’s plenty of time for them to get to know me before September!
I can’t believe I’m almost nine weeks already. J and I are talking about the NT scan. I think we’re both on the same page, but I’m interested to see what my new doc thinks about it as well. In a singleton pregnancy, it would be a no-brainer. But my understanding in multiple pregnancies is that the blood work portion of the screening really isn’t accurate, so I don’t know if it’s worth going through with any of the testing.
