Confirmation appointment today

My appointment was at 1 p.m., today, and we were a little late because we didn't leave early enough and had to do some running around beforehand.

Amy, Dr. McGowen's nurse, took me right back, and we did the pregnancy test in the office. It came up positive right away. They don't routinely do beta tests, so I don't know any numbers or anything.

She gave me my prenatal vitamins, although I've been taking a multi-vitamin and extra folic acid ever since we lost Jenna. She said if the prenatals made me sick, I could just keep on with those like I was doing.

She also recommended I quit taking my Zoloft, but keep taking my Metformin. I'm going to do that. I feel better when I take my Metformin anyway. I wish I could still take my Zoloft, but I'm sure I'll be ok with it for the next few weeks.

She had given me the wrong due date over the telephone. I'm due Nov. 26, Thanksgiving Day. I wonder how we do it. Tessa was born on Mother's Day, and Jenna was due on Christmas. Now, we have another holiday baby.

My specialist appointment next week is at 10:30, and we scheduled my first real appointment May 1.

I'm so glad your appt went well!! Yay for a Thanksgiving baby! Just a little warning about going off Zoloft - be careful. When I went off mine, I seriously thought I was going nuts. Not everyone reacts that same way and I hope you don't, but if you start feeling like you want to hurt someone - that's what it is. It took me a week to figure out what was wrong with me and I wish someone would have told me. Pass me a note on BBC if you have any questions. Congratulations again!!
