Today was Baby Osborn’s 2nd OBGYN appt.
Since I’m a first time mom (FTM) I wasn’t sure what to expect at a 2nd appointment. A few friends told me I’d be peeing in a cup (✓), get blood drawn (✓), weigh in (✓) etc. But it depended on the doctor if they would do an ultrasound. I guess it doesn’t happen at every appointment. So I was a little bummed at the thought of not being able to see my Candy Corn again.
The OBGYN nurse, Keri, weighed me (+10lbs!!), took my blood pressure (normal) and then Todd and I waited for Dr. Chong.
She came in and talked to us about my previous appt’s blood tests. All normal. No syphilis! Whew! lol
We also talked about scheduling pre-natal screening to screen for Downs and Trisomy 18. Since my cousin has Downs, Todd and I ultimately decided it would be a good idea to have the test and be prepared.
Then, Keri wheeled in the abdominal ultrasound machine! Yay!!
Todd took a video of it for your viewing pleasure.
Active much?? Looks like we might have to change “Candy Corn” to “Jumping Bean”!!
In Dr. Chong’s words. We’re in trouble!
Next appointment: April 23 @ 3pm (NT scan)
