This morning's appointment went GREAT!
As usual, I was called right back, and on my way into the back area I noticed that there was a flyer and business cards displayed advertising Bradley classes! YAY! This doctor will be supportive of Bradley natural childbirth, which is our goal! I had heard some horror stories about some doctor's not approving of patients who take Bradley classes because they end up being very educated and opinionated about the birth experience. It was a big relief to see that they are supportive of this method! Also, they were completely fine and non-pushy about my turning down the down's and cystic fibrosis screenings.
The heartbeat was found quickly and easily....measured in the 150s.
And, we scheduled the 20 week appointment and ULTRASOUND! YAY!
We are planning a party to reveal "boy or girl" for our family and friends...and us too!
The plan is to take the results (picture) to a bakery and they will make the inside of the cake pink or blue. We will all find out at the party when we cut in to the cake!
I've already reserved the church for the party, ordered the cake, and sent out evites.
What will we do if for some reason they can't tell boy or girl? Well...the party is scheduled the day after the ultrasound so we will have time to cancel. And I'll just get the cake made with Christmas decorations instead and we'll take it to a Christmas gathering. :)
Five weeks until the next appointment. Which also means only FIVE weeks until CHRISTMAS people!
