Thought it was our last RE appointment!

I thought today was my last RE appointment and I was feeling sad that I wouldn't get to "see" my baby again for another 10-12 weeks but Dr. Cool said, "See you in a week." Yippee!!

My progesterone is 14 still. The heartbeat was 170 beats per minute. And the baby (raspberry sized now) was upside down. It is much bigger than last week but still doesn't look *that* much like a baby. :) We also saw the umbilical cord which was just so cool!

Today our baby measured as 8 weeks, 3 days. That would line up with what I originally thought was my due date (11/8), the date that was almost our wedding date (but we wound up getting married a few weeks earlier in October). This is the third time it's been "off."

I have a consultation on Tuesday with a midwife at a birthing center. I hope she will take my case on and not as "high risk." If I'm high risk I would need to have a planned hospital birth at a hospital she's affiliated with which is hardly the one closest to my house. There are (at least) three others closer to my house with better reputations. So I won't be making any decisions until then. We'll see what happens.
