Today I had my second OB visit and it went swimmingly. I met with a midwife and can I just say she was the nicest, sweetest lady! She put me at ease immediately about several questions I had and I really wish I could request her as my midwife come February. She was peppy without being overly so and just so excited for us that I wanted her to be my new bff! She laughed at my lame commentary and really seemed sincere about getting me through this journey my way.
The waiting for the appointment took longer than the actual appointment. I just don't get doctor's offices...two hours to spend maybe 15 minutes with the midwife? I don't understand that about any visits to those in the medical field. One of life's mysteries I suppose?
Our little budding baby was still moving around like a fish and she had a hard time getting a heartbeat reading but when she did, it was the sweetest sound, nice and strong and fast. I can't wait for my 20 week ultrasound to finally know if baby is a he or she. We also were thinking about doing 4D images...anyone have insight about that?
I've had a few people ask about names and if we've been tossing around a few, both male and female. Ever since I can remember I have never been one to talk about the names on my short list. Mostly I didn't want someone that would be pregnant before me take what I considered my name. Silly, I know but it's something I have always been firm about. And continue to be firm about. Once we know gender, Hubby and I will settle on a name and keep that under wraps until the day baby arrives. At that point it won't matter 1.what people think of the name and 2. someone can't steal it.
