  • Everything went really well. Something funny did happen though (well it was funny later). The doctor didn't realize that the nurse had told me to take my bra off and when she reached up under my shirt--- it was boobs everywhere and she did look shocked. I quickly realized what happened and said THE NURSE TOLD ME TO TAKE MY BRA OFF!

    She said that these things are all normal..
    lower side going numb when you sleep (i think these had to do with fluid retention)
    shortness of breath (said the uterus is expanding and there's less "room" in there)

    and my marks are just weird.

    I got to listen to the h/b for the first time! It sounded faster than the boys so maybe it is a girl.
    She also drew my blood for the quad screen. The first round of bloodwork for genetic abnormalities came back fine (whatever that was). It's weird because she doesn't even ask you if you want it done and doesn't even tell you it's the quad screen-- I saw it on my little post-it. It was a great appt though.
