18 Week Appointment

Yesterday we had our 3rd prenatal appointment to check on me and Baby Isla or Cooper! We arrived around 1:00 and luckily they got me in for labs quickly because I had to pee soooo bad! However, after getting weighed and relieving my bladder, I had to drink the glucola drink so that they could test me for gestational diabetes.... it wasn't awful but it definately wasn't pleasant! Once that was finished they took us back to an exam room where we were immediately met by the OB's student who asked basic questions and left... then we waited. And waited. And waited. An hour later a nurse came by and took me back to the lab to have my blood drawn for the glucola test.... and then I was sent back to the exam room where we proceeded to wait. And wait.... and wait. Finally another nurse came by and asked why we were still waiting... well we had still yet to see the doctor! She finally came in about an hour and a half after my scheduled appointment! She felt the baby and my uterus and baby is doing great! We got to hear the heartbeat and it was exactly 140 :) I go back to start meeting the midwives on August 12 and then we have our big ultrasound on Aug 16 :)
