First OB appointment

Well there's less to tell than I'd hoped.

First, it was weird to have a guy with me. First time ever!
Second, I laughed when John saw me get up on the exam table in my paper clothes and said "I'm so glad I'm not a guy. I would never do this." Lol.
Third, we got to see the amniotic sac. The placenta was covering most of the baby view. They did show us a blinking line that they said was the heartbeat.
They only see one sac so if it's twins they'd be MoMo. Let's hope that's not the case. It's very very likely and assumed there's just one. Whew.
They estimate I am 7 weeks and 3 days. For now due date is November 17. Could change once they can measure the baby and not just the sac.
We could not hear anything because I'm still too early.

I let my doc know I plan on switching to a midwife. She did not seem rebuffed at all, thank goodness.
With her procedures, I got a slip for labwork and a return appointment in two weeks to review labs and get a better ultrasound. Instead I'll be trying to get an appoint with a midwife in two weeks and go over labs and maybe another ultrasound then.

Now I just have to pick one! Ugh
