First OB appointment

I had my first prenatal appointment today. It went really well! I liked the doctor.. the nurse was also really nice, and everything was SO on time! By the time I peed in a cup and went back to my room.. the doctor was already there, waiting for ME! He was very kind and understanding about my fears. I felt at ease with him. I've actually never had a man doctor before, so I thought it might be weird, but it wasn't. He did an ultrasound in his office, which of course was the hightlight of the appt! I didn't cry this time, cause I really just wanted to SEE the baby.... and that I did!! WOW, what a difference a week makes! The blob is a mini baby... I saw 'his' foot, arms, he was moving around! The nurse said, LOOK! It looks like it's sucking it thumb already! I wasn't expecting pictures, since it was an in office ultrasound... but then the nurse handed the pics to me!! YAY!! I swear the doctor and nurse were as excited as I was about seeing the cute little babe wiggling around in there! :) I called Shaun when I left, and he was really bummed that he didn't go to the appt when I told him how much the baby was moving, and seeing such details! Here are 3 of todays pics! Enjoy!! :)

I am so glad that your appointment went so well. It is very important to establish a good relationship with the doctor. The pictures are awesome. We can even make out the baby in them. Sounds like this is going to be a very active baby. Thanks for sharing.

Ditto what Mom and Dad said about being glad the appointment went so well. I love the pics (the middle one is my fav) and boy there is a difference in one week. I really am thrilled that the appointment was so positive as it just keeps things going in a good direction.
