I talked to James today about the blood test and we both think its unnecessary because its purely for Down Syndrome and no one in either of our families has it. I called my doctor to make sure that's all the blood test was for and to find out if my appointment was just for the blood test or if it was for a check up. And it's just a check up :) Happy, happy, Joy, Joy! :P So I'm happy now :) I think I could live off cold medium cheddar cheese and ice water. Mmmmmm....
So I didn't get the ultrasound I was hoping for.. And I won't for at least 3 weeks. We did get a gooood long listen to the heartbeat to make sure it kept going at a steady pace and I would assume to make sure there were no murmurs or anything. All of my tests came back PERFECT! I've never gotten a higher test score in my life! :P So it was just a nice appointment to meet my doctor and talk to her about anything and everything. And I like her! She's very happy and smiley! She didn't rush me, how ever we did wait 40 minutes for her in the room. But I do like her.Oh! This just popped in my head, I will be delivering at LDS, I don't remember if I've mentioned that in a previous blog or not. My next appointment is on 10/6 and I'm not looking forward to it because I'm 'volunteering' to do a 'voluntary' blood screening, but I'm being forced to do it by my doc.. I don't think its even covered by insurance. Hmm.. I'll have to call about that.. Anyways, when I go to that appointment we will set up when to do my next ultrasound. She may not want to do it till 20 weeks, I'll be 16 weeks at this next appointment. But since she's forcing me to have a needle shoved in my arm I'm going to ask her if she will do one that week. I'll let ya know! Oh, I'm going to go buy maternity pants today! Yay :)

Yay! I'm kind of excited for it because I know they wont ask for any blood and I can keep all my clothes on! Lol.. That's horrible. ANYWAYS!! I really hope they do an ultrasound so we can find out what we're having. I guess that's about all I have to say.. So.. Have a good one :)

So on Thursday I will be 3 months! That means I only have 6 months left! Scary :( So I've been trying other prenatal vitamins and I tried one (Natelle Plus) on Sunday night and it made me SO SO sick! Gave me a migraine, I threw up like 3 times. I was sick almost all day yesterday because of it too. But I'm better now :) So I called my insurance about this other kind I've taken and they didn't make me sick, Duet DHA ec. They are wonderful. They are also expensive, prescription only. My co-pay is $40 and the rest is covered, but that is a lot for a vitamin. I talked to James about it and he agreed that if they don't make me sick and I can take them every day that we will get them. They are what baby needs and I can handle them.. So that's our 'justification'. So my appointment is in 2 weeks from today. Hopefully we will be able to find out if we are having a boy or girl :)
