First Appointment

Shazam and I had our first appointment at the ob today. It was really great. We met with the nurse and she was super nice and helpful. I am feeling really good about our choice so far. I meet with the ob in 2 weeks and am looking forward to meeting her and making sure sesame is healthy and moving along. The nurse also made an ultrasound appointment for us a few days before we see the Dr. She had to give me a diagnosis to make sure insurance will pay for it. I now have "long" cycles and therefore need an early ultrasound (30 days is long right??). Shazam and I are really looking forward to it. It will be an internal one so that is not very exciting but if we get to see sesame then I am game. They took my health history and answered any questions we had then we had some blood and urine tests. We had a 7:30 appointment and I just made it to my second period class (ok I was a little late).

Now that we have our due date 9/14/2009 and our fetal age 6 weeks 2 days I thought some of you would like to see what sesame looks like this week. ( of course sesame is much cuter than the example embryo!)

For all you on pregnancy symptom watch you will be happy to hear that I seem to be perfectly on track and I threw up for the first time this morning! Good thing we had the saltines on hand! A little ginger ale and a few saltines and I was feeling much better.

Our baby kind of looks like a sea horse!

The most adorable seahorse I've ever seen :).

Sorry about the barfing. Welcome to Week 6! I can't wait to see your ultrasound images in a couple of weeks!
