Overdue update

Oops, sorry I've been so neglectful of the blog!  I'm on so many buddy groups and forums that I keep forgetting to update here.  So, I'm 7 weeks 3 days pregnant as of today.  I had an ultrasound about a week ago and saw the little heartbeat!  It was such a relief.  Everything is measuring fine and looking good.  I had a blood draw today and will have an ultrasound next week.  They are still doing betas, believe it or not, today I'm up to 65,002.  I'm feeling pretty good.  I've had some bad bouts of nausea, but I've felt fine over the last week.  I've really "popped" this week (already!!??) and had to break out the maternity pants.  I've told some people, but I'll wait until 12 weeks to tell the extended family.

I tried to make an appointment with my old OB (from the last pregnancy), but was put on hold for over 5 minutes (15 minutes, the first time) each time I tried to call.  I was treated rudely when I tried to speak to someone, so I decided to switch OBs.  I really loved the doctor who delivered S (see birth story), so I decided to go with his practice, even though it's about 30 minutes from my house.  I'm a little worried about the distance, but I guess it will be worth it if it's a great practice.
