MFM appt.

I had my first MFM appt yesterday and got the see baby for the first time, we love seeing the heartbeat for the first time! It makes all of this extreme exhaustion, "morning" sickness and Lovenox shots worth it when you see that heartbeat for the first time :) My MFM was happy with my BPs and we will follow the same treatment plan as my last pregnancy which was seeing him for ultrasounds every 4 weeks until about 20 weeks when I start going every 2 weeks for growth and doppler ultrasounds. I am hoping and praying that we have a result that is closer to pregnancy #2 this time and my MFM thinks that is highly likely, although no one ever can know for sure. We are pretty certain that I will have BP issues at some point, hopefully towards the end, but I am praying to keep PE away again!

Keeping crossables crossed you follow in your 2nd pregnancies footsteps! It's so reassuring to have a solid plan with folks you trust.

I second that! These subsequent pregnancies can be rough even when everything physical goes perfectly. Hang in there and holler and vent and ask questions as you need and we'll do our best!
