Seven Weeks

Only five more weeks left in the first trimester! I’m definitely counting down to the point where I won’t have to worry as much anymore. I’ve heard the second trimester is much more enjoyable.

It’s hard to believe that it’s almost been a month since we found out we were pregnant with Lil’ Geek. Time seems to be going by *so* slowly! Here’s a list of things that happened in the last week or will be happening this week:

  • We saw Lil’ Geek’s heartbeat. Now I want to see it every day to make sure he/she is ok!
  • The end is in sight with Emory. My last appointment is Monday, and then I “graduate” to my OB. That can’t come soon enough.
  • I’m down from two estrogen patches every other day to one patch every other day. When this box runs out, I’m done for good. Yay!
  • I made my first OB appointment! I’m ready to start feeling like a “normal” pregnant woman.
  • We’re going on a hospital tour on Sunday. I know it’s early, but I wanted to make sure we picked an OB with privileges at the hospital we want to deliver at. Although we haven’t toured the Women’s Center yet, I think we’re going to like it. The pictures online were gorgeous, and it’s a branch of a major hospital in Atlanta that everyone says is the best hospital for L&D. And, this branch has a Level 2 NICU. They said they can handle babies born up to 32 weeks early. That’s a definite plus.
  • It’s been busy, and I’m ready to really get this pregnancy going and really start feeling and looking pregnant. It’ll definitely help me ease my mind and not wonder if Lil’ Geek is still ok in there (I’m not the only one who’s done that, right?).

      You know you can buy the fetal heart dopplers for home, at least you guys could check the heartbeat everyday, it’s kinda fun 🙂
      Pretty sure even Wal*Mart carries them!

      Hi Cady,
      I’m 6 and a half weeks at the moment and I know exactly what you mean. I haven’t had the chance to see the heartbeat yet (our first scan is at 10 weeks) and on the days that I don’t feel sick I feel like I need proof that the baby is there!
      Good luck with your new Ob, and I hope that you enjoy the hospital tour!!

      Oh wow! Your right about it going slowly lol. I just seemed to forget I was pregnant because I never got sick etc, so mine went fast. I hope everything is going well for you! Little hugs for Lil Geek.
