I went to my general practioner today to get the pregnancy confirmed and a referral for an obstetrician. While there, they checked my pee and stole some blood. First sigh of relief can be expressed. Urine was normal; blood test confirmed pregnancy and came back with good numbers.
I feel a little more pregnant today than I did yesterday. I was terribly uncomfortable in my pants today, so much so that I sat around my office most of the afternoon with them unbuttoned and unzipped. I'm also starting to get the icky attitude about food, you know, where I'm kind of hungry but the thought of eating something doesn't really seem like a good idea. I expect those feelings to get stronger and more frequent in the coming weeks, probably hitting a peak around the time we fly to Chicago in mid-August for our second wedding party. Oh, I'm gonna be an awesome travel companion! Poor NS. Me with my early pregnancy glamour and then the two 3.5 year-old boys. Doesn't it sound like the funnest plane ride ever?
Now, I'm just waiting for my referral letter to come in the mail. Upon its arrival, I get to make the "real" appointment, although it does sound like a boring paperwork one according to the woman I talked to this afternoon at their office.
Thanks to everyone for the congrats, the well wishes, the positive thoughts, and the prayers. You know it all made me cry;>
