First Appointment with New OB
I had my first appointment with my new ob yesterday afternoon at 8 weeks, 2 days. The appointment went well. I like the new doctor. I was able to get an u/s. It was abdominal so I couldn't see too much, but I heard the baby's heartbeat (176 bpm). She also look at the SCH (the bleed) and said that I might have some spotting off and on but it'll likely be done by 14-16 weeks. She actually does at least a quick u/s at every office visit. My next appointment will be on Sept. 15 (10 weeks, 4 days); I had this past one extra due to the SCH.
I also got my every two week blood draw done for sending to PPVI for progesterone. I tried to get it done before my appointment, but I had to leave after waiting 20 minutes and come back after the appointment. Since the post office was already closed and I was hungry, I told them I'd just pick it up this morning. I got over there (and I brought the little boy I nanny for) and someone had sent the blood up to one of the other hospitals in the system. Now I'm waiting for them to send the blood back down and then we've got to go back and pick it up and take it to the post office. I'm glad that they at least didn't run it; I would have been really angry since I had my PIO last night so I couldn't get the draw redone today. I'm pretty sure the post office will be super busy when we go now.
