So I had my second doctor's appointment today. It was not super fun or exciting til the end.
Initially, a nurse took a PMH (past medical history) from both my husband and I. Then the doctor took "cultures" aka a cervical swab for gonorrhea and chlamydia. Not fun. The OB did make me chuckle when she said "this is nothing against you guys, I have to do this on everyone". Then I got the results of my routine blood tests I took a few weeks ago- all was normal no anemia, HIV, or syphilis. I'm immune to rubella ( I already knew that) and I got my blood type (which I already knew).
Then at the very end we got to hear Sprout's heartbeat- yay! The OB found it for a quick second a few times but it went away. She kept at it and finally found the right spot. The heart rate was between 160-170 For some reason that makes my sister think we're having a boy. Whatever.
I also have to decide if I want to have screening blood tests for genetic disorders- I'm leaning towards no because I don't think it would make a difference to me at this point in the pregnancy. I wouldn't end it regardless of the results.
That's all for now
