I got a few hours of kid free time today, the only down side is I had to go to my midwife appointment. Which normally are fine, but anyone who has had a baby knows the first one has all kinds of un-pleasantries.
But today I got to see the bean for the first time and see its tiny heart beat, beating away in there.
I also found out that Kaiser now does the new quad screening and I am getting mine next week. I had recently emailed Dr. Friedman (the specialist we had with Jonathan's pregnancy) and asked if Kaiser did this as routine and if I could get it "the next time around" and he said it wasn't likely. So I was very excited and surprised to hear Paula (my midwife) say she could order it for me for maybe a little piece of mind. If that come back with any irregularities they then send me into a Hig Definition Ultra Sound to check the skin at the back of the neck of the baby, basically a thickening is often a sign of a problem.
Paula also ordered the US, for just another added bit of piece of mind. It won't be the super high tech one we had with the specialist but the one just below that (to my knowledge). That should be in two weeks.
It was very exciting to see the bean. Hopefully as is as well as I think it is, we shall soon see I guess.
