First OB Appointment! (10 weeks, 2 days)

Much to my surprise it was pretty much like having an annual. For those who don’t know what an annual is, allow me to explain. Get a pap-smear, feel around on your uterus, leave. You are in and out of the actual exam in about two seconds.

I think I spent a half an hour filling out forms, did you know they ask you if you want your baby to have a social security number? I had to check yes and sign my name! I must be naive because I really thought everyone (from this country)  was automatically given a number, I thought that question was very odd.

They gave me a huge shopping bag full of free stuff and information, very neat, I can’t wait to get home and look through it!

I also had blood drawn about seven vials and had to pee in a cup, I hope all that blood work comes back okay. I didn’t even think to ask exactly what all they were checking.

So far so good! Next month we will get to listen to the babies heartbeat, how exciting!

    How weird is that, I thought SS# were automatic too! I don’t remember signing anything like that here. hmmm…

    Get used to peeing in a cup, it happens every appointment.

    Also, ask your doctor if they sell or give out your info. I discovered mine did after my junk mail tripled. Really kinda upsetting.

    I hope the next month goes fast so you can hear the heartbeat, its very exciting. And it sounds like a train, according to my 6 year old!

    Take care of yourself!

    Lucky’s bio mom didn’t check the box, and as a result he doesn’t have a ss#. The adoption worker has applied for one, but it hasn’t been asigned yet. I had no clue!

    We also had to apply for a birth certificate.

    Thanks for the update!
