While Lizzie was up in North Carolina, she accompanied me to my doctor's appointment. It was a pretty uneventful appointment for me (no blood work or pelvic exam), but we did get to listen to the heartbeat. It took the Dr. a little while to find the heartbeat, and I was holding my breath the whole time. But, eventually, we did hear the baby's heart- it sounded like a galloping horse, it was so fast. And we heard two kicks! Which the Dr. said was good too.
So, Lizzie officially approves of the Dr., and although his midwife has left the practice (due to a death in the family), I am very comfortable with him and his views on child birth. He is very supportive of me hiring a doula, and he thinks it is great when I gain weight- 2 important things in my book!
So, that's about all of the updates up to this point. Now you know everything!
