Well, I got called to go back to the dr. a little earlier than expected. My first appt. was on a Friday and the next Wed. I had a voicemail on my phone at school AND my cell. The msg. was from the dr. saying it wasn't an emergency, but to call and ask for HER asap. WHAT?!? Are you kidding me? It's not an emergency..but call HER asap. Great. I have some sort of foreign disease. I'm dying of cancer. I have 6 months to live. Brett lied and gave me something! All of these horrible thoughts were running through my head. Thank God our Spanish teacher was in my room working with a student. I was frantic. I begged her to watch my class so that I could call my dr. and find out how much time I had to live. By this time, I had forgotten it wasn't an emergency. Come to find out, my blood test came back that I am NOT immune to the chicken pox. I had written on my forms that I had been exposed in the past week. How could I not be immune? My mom MADE me play with my friends when I was little and drink from their cups when so that I WOULD get them. I'm a teacher for God's sake! For EIGHT years! How did this never happen?!?! My sister is 35 and never had them either. I just assumed we were BOTH immune! Welp, I'm not. So to make a long story short...anytime a student goes home with them and I have even been in the same room with them...I have to go in. DRAMA!!! Whatever, I'll do it.
So this sonogram is from that appt. Brett and I got to hear the heartbeat for the 1st time and it was amazing. I didn't cry...I thought I might, but it was dang cool! I was 11w2d at the time and I was measuring 12w3d. My due date has not changed, for now. This picture is awesome b/c you can really see the nose and chin pretty good. It's amazing how much they change in just 10 days! You can click on the pic to make it larger. My next appt. is scheduled for the day before Thanksgiving. I think we'll be short just a week or so of finding out the gender.
I told the staff at my school about the pregnancy on Friday, Nov. 7th. I don't have those pics uploaded yet, and really, I don't want to shock anyone with me being on time...
