1st Hospital Appointment

Went yesterday and did the usual 1st appointment stuff. Went through all our family history and all the information about my labour with Levi. Of course being another IVF pregnancy I have to have at least one appointment with the doctor at the hospital but all being well I should be able just to go to the birthing unit like I did last time and have all my appointments with the midwives.

Funny thing is I was asked if I would be willing to be part of a study for pregnant woman who are obese or over weight. Only because my BMI is like 28. I hate this stupid BMI shit. I am not obese I look fine and considering I lost 10kg before I even got pregnant. Grrr.

Anyway, I got to heat the babies heartbeat again which was nice. Still very strong and very fast. Also booked my scan for 8th September and morphology scan for October 26th. Cant wait to see my little bubble again.

We told my parents on the weekend that I was pregnant. Levi had his "This little monkey is going to be a big brother" t-shirt on. He looked so cute in it. I didnt even think to get a picture though. Will have to put him in it again and take a pic.

So we got to my parents and my dad straight away says to take Levi's jacket off because it was hot in the house. I thought for sure he was going to see the t-shirt. Pfft I was wrong. So we were standing that for a bit and Levi was already playing with his toys. My middle sister already knew about that t-shirt so she kept asking Levi what his t-shirt said trying to get people to notice. That still didnt work. So I told Levi to show everyone his t-shirt. Finally my little sister read it.

My parents of course cried. Strange lol. But they are happy so that is the main thing. Mum is stuck on the fact that Levi is born in March and now she has another 2 grandchildren due in march. Cant remember if I wrote about my little sister being pregnant as well.

So that was the telling of my parents. Everyone else can wait till after my scan.
