Please Don't Be My Doctor!

kermit Pictures, Images and PhotosYesterday I had my first visit to the doctors. They did a lot of questioning and some blood work. They also listened for a heart beat and did not get one yet. They say that my due date is April 17; however, I still believe it is later due to my long cycles. I am not at a regular OB/Gyn office which makes me uncomfortable. I am at the Community Health Center so the doctors are just family practice dudes and the doctor assigned to me is just a resident. I haven't actually seen him yet. The doctor that I did see was super weird looking. When I first saw him while I was in the waiting room I silently prayed that he wouldn't be my doctor. Straight from a western movie (boots, wranglers, leather stringy neck thingy with gun holster accesory to keep it fastened, two long hangy beard thingies on each side of his chin). The only doctor thing about him was the stethescope. I have this day-nightmare when looking at him of him doing a gyn exam or a sugery and his beards getting down in in the mess. I think that I am going to call around and see if I can't go someplace else where the doctors look more normal. I can do that now that I have MEDICAID!!!!! Thats right! I don't have to worry about that anymore. I am going to survive financially. Why stay at the ghetto community health center if I don't have to, right? I feel kind of bad saying that since one day my husband will be a resident and people will have to let him be their doctor before he becomes an official physician. Brady said he even has to do some rotations there later this year. But this is my first baby. Can't I be the practice rat later?! That is if there is a later. Mothers must forget all about this first trimester business or I don't see why anyone would do it again.
What else is new... I have the boobs of a Victoria's Secret model! Thats nice to look at, but why do they have to hurt so much! However, they don't hurt quite as much as they did that first month. So overall I would say I am looking pretty hot. I have lost a couple pounds due to the vomiting and haven't started to show any pregnancy signs on the outside. My shape is quite nice. The only downer is my face. I have acne and can't do much about it because acne medication isn't to be used during pregnancy.
I finished a great pregnancy book that I highly recommend. It is called The Girlfriend's Guide to Pregnancy. It cracked me up. There is nothing better than learning and being entertained at the same time. Girlfriend's Guide to Pregnancy Pictures, Images and Photos
Thats all for now.
