First Appointment

We had our first prenatal appointment on Friday, August 24. We first had an ultrasound followed by a visit with our new doctor.

The ultrasound was quite an experience. We were able to see so much even though we are not that far along. The woman performing the ultrasound was very nice. Based on her work she determined that our due date is March 31, 2008. This puts me nearly nine weeks along, and yet, we were able to see our baby's heart beat!

I am relieved to know that we chose a great doctor with a few clicks of a mouse button. I had only been seeing a general internal medicine doctor for my regular check-ups and needed to find an OB-GYN. I did numerous internet searches both of local hospitals and my insurance provider preferred directory to find a match. I ended up with Dr. O'Connor. He is very nice, extremely credible, very experienced, and easy to understand.

We are scheduled for another appointment in three weeks to hear our baby's heart beat. We will keep you posted!

Exciting News

Jonathan and I learned some exciting news on the morning of Thursday, August 2. This exciting news is the purpose of our new family blog. I took a little test that told us I was pregnant! I had had a feeling I was and convinced Jonathan to the point where he suggested we purchase a pregnancy test. Well, the results were in. I called Jonathan into the room to see it for himself. We took the test again on Friday morning just to be sure and the results were confirmed.
