Dr. Appointment

Yesterday I went to my second doctors appointment.  It would of been like a 5 minute visit, but this thing I signed up for (at least I think that's what it was) had a lady come talk to me.  She asked me a bunch of questions and evaluated my poor diet haha.  They just listened to the heartbeat, which I guess was ok since they didn't say anything.  And they took my blood pressure...which again I assume was ok because she didn't even tell me what it was.  You can't forget the dreadful peeing in a cup haha.  I did find out though, that my blood type is O- so because Matt is positive, I have to get a shot at 28 weeks...something like "The Rh Factor". I also had to give more blood for a test that tests for Down's Syndrome and some other stuff.  At least this time I didn't get a huge bruise like last time.   I go back in two weeks to get an ultrasound which will tell us for sure the sex.  I also need to find a pediatrician (I know that's spelled wrong, but I'm too lazy to go correct it).  Now when you find one...are you supposed to like call them and say your so far along and you want them to be your doctor for the baby afterwards?  Or do you not even talk to them until after the babies born?  Oh my! I never really noticed my stomach growing (I guess cause I see it everyday) but I took a couple pictures weeks apart and aw man it is bigger.  Strange to me.
It seems weird to me to talk about "the future"...still feel like its a jinx...even though sometimes I can't help but think about it.  Things like "Wow this Christmas we'll have an extra person." haha WEIRD!  I've also tried to make some plans for Thanksgiving.  I know we still have a while, and it's not like they're concrete plans, just shooting ideas around. 
Everyone is talking about going up to Park I want to go so bad!  This is one of those times when I think "maybe we should move back."  Gah! Why can't everyone just live in the same state?!  I guess that's what I get for meeting my man online >.<

  1. Did you tell them your sister had a Down syndrome baby? I guess it doesn't matter because its not inherited! I didn't even get the blood test done, because it usually tells people their chances are high and freaks them out. But the only way to tell for sure is an amnio, and they aren't sticking a huge needle in my belly!
