I am going shopping May 20, 2008

Posted by The Mom in pregnancy.

Online, but shopping none the less. I am shopping for maternity clothes and red leather Birkenstocks. Actually, I am buying them!

These are my Birkenstocks to be:

I am in love with them already.

We had horrendously long waits both for the midwife & the doctor today. The history was taken, blood was drawn, extra tests were done because of my history of high blood pressure in pregnancy, shock was expressed over the fact that D was 10lb10.5oz coming out and I was informed that I would have to have a glucose tolerance test, to which I replied “No problem, I passed the last one with flying colours”.

Then we waited and waited and waited to see the doctor. When we got in there we ran through the history again, and she finally asked us if we wanted to go next door for a scan, Um, YEAH! I lie down, she put on the gel, put on the probe on and there it was, my baby and its heart, beating away. M was over the other side of the room (he didn’t want to watch) pacing. Then the baby started to move, arms waving, legs kicking and ultimately started doing push offs on the side of my uterus, far too cool! She left the probe on for ages and watched the baby moving around. The baby measured (CTR) 13w3d which was nice as I am 12w5d.

I am back for an anomaly scan in 8 weeks (July 15th).

Now I must order my clothes before I go to bed!

Hi! I’m visiting you back from NaLeavComMo!
Congrats on your beautiful ultrasound! I remember the HIGH that the first few brought me!

Maternity shopping on the other hand… not so fun for me, but that’s a whole other topic!

Congrats and good luck!
