Baby McElroy
I have my second OB appointment today. I'm a little nervous, this one is "the physical". Not that anything really scarey will happen, just a Pap and stuff, I've just never had any other doctor than my GP. I've been seeing my GP since I was probably 2 years old, he delivered my brother and sister even. As weird as it is I'm nervous about getting a physical and stuff from a female, since I've only ever had my male doctor before! I'm not freaking out, just a little nervous.

I am looking forward to hearing how my test results are though. I want to see if my thyroid levels are ok. I had the second test for that Monday so she should have two results to compare and see if pregnancy is messing with my levels. I also want to see how my iron level is. I don't worry too much about it, my diet is okay, but being a vegitarian I need to think about it.

I don't have a lot of questions to ask at the appointment today. I've been reading a ton online, and in books, so I'm feeling pretty ok in terms of knowledge and understanding for this point. I'm going to mention that I can see a physical difference in my belly and ask when I can expect to "look pregnant" rather than just chubby. I also need to confirm that exercise and sex are ok. (even though I sort of decided to go ahead with both earlier in the week - HA!)
