I'm 15 weeks today! Time is flying all of a sudden! I had another doctor visit today with a NEW Obstetrician (Thank God!). I decided to change because my previous one was way to busy. She never returned my calls when I was concerned about anything. I always felt rushed in her office so I could never ask any questions. And sometimes I would have to wait almost 3 hours just to see her! My goodness! It was like a herd of pregnant women all cuddled up together in a waiting room desperately waiting for their name to be called. Not my scene!
So I was referred to this new OB by a friend and let me tell you, he's wonderful! I explained to him why I left my old OB and he told me how he was different in every way. I was able to sit in his office for a half hour and ask as many questions as my little heart desired! And I came prepared LOL He thought I was joking but I literally had 8 questions written in my cell phone to ask. And after leaving I even came up with a few more that I'll ask the next time around hehehe. Hey, I'm about to be a first time mom! I'm clueless!
Anyway, the whole experience was grand. The office had free parking, which was not the case with the previous office. Also, the waiting room only had like 2 other women in it and it was so comfy in there! Nice TVs, carpeting, the works!
The best part was, I was able to hear my little one's heartbeat (Ba-dump, Ba-dump, Ba-dump!) I wasn't able to hear it in the prior weeks since it was so early. But now as soon as he put the Doppler on my round belly, I heard it loud and clear! Yes, I had ultrasounds before this, but there's something special about hearing your baby's little heart beating so quick and strong. Amazing! The doctor even helped me distinguish what noises my little bean made when it was moving around (swoosh! swoosh!) It was like he/she was doing karate in there!
I can't wait until I really start feeling some movement in my tummy. Then it'll really feel "REAL". For now, I sometimes feel flutters after drinking ginger ale or eating something sweet. I think it's the baby but who knows - could be gas for all I know. I'm not quite sure what it is since this is my first baby and all. But from what read, it won't be too long til I feel definite kicks! It's supposed to be easy to feel around 18-22 weeks. Can't wait!
p.s. Since I'm nearing the 4 month mark, we're finally going to start telling more friends and family. In fact, I just posted my blog up on facebook LOL Let's see how long it takes some of my FB friends to catch on to our big surprise by reading this blog! Fun Fun Fun!
