First Appointment

We had our first prenatal visit today. It's official, confirmation of pregnancy! YAY!!! They confirmed the due date of July 16, 2009. We talked about a few things with the dr and then we got into the part I guess I need to get used to, the exam. Apparently they due a pap smear at your first visit. It was a little more uncomfortable than usual and it caused some light cramping that I normally don't experience after. The most unusual part of it, James was right there the whole time. It was an interesting experience for both of us. I go back again Christmas week to hear the heartbeat. She said if we can't hear the heartbeat, she'll do an ultrasound. We're very much looking forward to that!! I'm hoping to find out if there's just one or two in there :) I've always been teased about twins since dad is a twin, but the other night dad told me there's twins on my mom's side too. WOW. I guess we'll find out soon enough. Overall, it was a good appointment. We did get a lot of information and we're very excited to learn!

How exciting, congrats on your first appointment!!

We have twins in our family, too. My dad's mom had 2 sets of twins - one boy/girl and one boy/boy.

Can't wait to find out after you hear the heartbeat!
