I was pretty nervous about meeting Dr.C. I really wanted to like him, I'm tired of going from doctor to doctor, and he came highly recommended. We started off kinda rocky but he had me smiling by the end. We had a 1pm appointment and I'm usually early to everything, plus there's always a lot of first time paperwork to complete. I find his office at 12:45pm and there is a handwritten (yes, handwritten! I didn't know people did that anymore :) ) on the locked door of the office. Out to Lunch. Be back at 1pm. Their whole office shuts down! They locked the door to get into the waiting room, not the door from the waiting room to the offices! So here I am, standing in a long hallway and have to walk all the way back to the elevators to find a chair. This was our rocky start.
So I waited by the elevators for Tim and for the clock to strike one before heading back down the hall. It turns out that they have a small office, which I'm fine with, and not a lot of staff on Friday afternoons. Fill out all the paperwork, which one was to be able to see my lab results online.....sweet! The nurse did the usual weight (what I expected) and height (OMG I've shrunk another 1/2 inch!). I don't know why my height irks me like it does. I've just always thought of myself as tall and thought at one point I was around 5'7" or 8". Then last year when I got measured at 5'6" I felt like "short" was tattooed across my forehead. I'm usually in heels, maybe that's why I don't feel 5'6". When the nurse said 5'5.5", Tim lost it! Full on laugh out loud in the hallway! Grrr. Now he's been walking around calling me 5cubed.
Went through my medical history with Dr.C. It was nice to see that we were in a good spot, healthy, no bad vices, knew alot of the do's and don't's. Then we had our ultrasound. I had heard from multiple people that your first ultrasound is internal, so I was surprised when he suggested an external due to my frame. Only my second external ultrasound to date! Sure enough, we could see our little peanut.
So far so good! We're headed back in a couple weeks to do another follow up.
