First Appointment

Today was our first appointment with Dr. Housel and it was a joyful time to say the least. I was anxious to see him so I could figure out exactly how far along I am and how much of the season I'll be able to play through. GOOD NEWS:] Turns out I'm only 6 weeks along so that'll give me a couple extra weeks longer to play. He said that once the first trimester is through things start getting dangerous for the baby so that puts me at the middle of September. Not too long! We won't even be into conference matches by then. He said he would keep an eye on me though and just see how things are progressing and then we'll have a better idea. Last thing I want to do though is put the baby in any sort of danger! But overall the first appointment was a good one. J.D. wasn't too enthused when he found out that since I'm only 6 weeks, the doc did a... close your eyes if you don't wanna know... vaginal ultrasound. It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be though! He said everything was looking good! Then they had to draw blood for all the different tests... I HATE needles.. but it wasn't too bad! I think before it gets too late, I'll start posting the infamous belly shots so I can see the progression! So with the first appt. comes the first belly shot:]
