|08-5-2009 - First Dr. Appt
||My mood while writing this blog:|
Well I had my first dr appt today. I was very excited. I expected a lot of it to be paperwork and it was. Then I went downstairs and they did a lot of blood drawing and I peed in a cup and went home. It was so disappointing. I was hoping maybe some type of hospital confirmation on my pregnancy nope. It's not that I don't beleive my 3 hpt's but I was hoping for some kind of confirmation. A transvaginal u/s would have been ideal, but I didn't expect that. I got nothing. And then they tell me that they don't do an u/s until 20 weeks. And that's the only one. I was very upset. I almost started crying right there in the dr. office and did break down in the car when I called my mom. I understand in the states, that it's not that unusual, but I just feel so cheated. In germany you get an u/s every appt with pics. My next appt is june 10 and they won't be doing one then. I just wanted something to look at, or some kind of confirmation that it was real. It just sucks. I feel even less pregnant than before. I'm trying not be upset about it, but it's hard because I feel like none of my worries were reassured. That I got cheated out of anything to look at or be excited about. This may be how it normally is in the states, but I really got to say I'm not impressed.

- Saturday, 9 May I'm sorry. Maybe you might get an extra one at some point. They told me they only did one at 20 weeks and then it depended on which doc you got if you would get extra u/s. But if you and lance are both really wanting something to look at why don't you look into getting a 3D. I mean you won't be able to see much yet but at least you could be get the reassurance you're wanting. jojo09 1 pink 1 blue
- Saturday, 9 May Arr Starka you poor thing. But look on the positive side, that you would only need further investigation if they thought there was something wrong. I know you must be feeling disappointed but in England, the normal process is doctors visit to register pregnancy (no water test!) 11wk scan, and 20 wk scan & thats it. So just 1 more scan than in Germany. Over here though you can buy a little monitor which allows you to be able to listen to the babys heart beat - do they sell them in Germany? Maybe you could buy one abit further into the pregnancy and you can sit in the comfort of your own home and listen to your baba kicking the crap out of you...haha ...I may get one but am really thinking about it before i do as i may become too paranoid if i cant hear anything!
Keep smiling that big happy smile, you are carrying the most precious thing in the world and your 20wk scan will be here in no time at all....your already nearly 6wks - just think how quickly that time has gone. Keep smiling. Love Jojo xxxxx
