Yesterday I had jury duty and I got released early! I called my OB's office and they were able to get me in earlier because my appointment was originally at 4pm. So, I went to lunch and then headed over to my apt. I was feeling a little anxious because Dave couldn't be there with me and I was so worried they wouldn't be able to find the baby's heartbeat. I guess that is the post-loss mama feelings coming through. So, my blood pressure was a tad bit high, but not really high and my OB wasn't overly concerned. We talked about an amnio in the event that I will have to have one at 37 weeks. I was feeling nervous about it, but she put my mind at ease. I joked with her and told her she is not aloud to be on vacation during the first few weeks of June because she is delivering this baby! I want to come full circle with her and she agreed, she wants to deliver our baby too! :)
She said I can come in again in two weeks when I have my ultrasound. That way she can check my BP and see how I am doing. I just have to say it again, I LOVE my OB!! She is awesome!
Today I was talking to my friend Trinity on Facebook and I was telling her how I was anxious about the nurse not being able to find the baby's heartbeat and how I should just go ahead and buy a doppler. She told me that she has one and she'll send it to me!! I am so grateful to her! That takes away a lot of my fears. Now I just have to hope that I will be able to find baby's heartbeat on my own!!
Tonight for dinner I made this, http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/rachael-ray/30-minute-shepherds-pie-recipe2/index.html

I will leave you now with my new baby bump picture, 16 weeks 1 day!
