Aimeehug - Yay to being 'out' with your pregnancy!
Annababy79 - I cringe at the bias your GP is showing. My sister had the same thing with our family dr. It became a real stand off for her first.
Speaking of testing, I finally saw an OB today (rather than random OBGYN at health care clinic) and will see another tomorrow (you meet a few here and then pick). The one today I really liked. She was much more accurate with the measurements. They're at 10w+5d which is actually a few days ahead. Gives me some confidence. And finally got their heart rates at 169 and 180. Estimated due date since there are two is around December 16/17 at 37 weeks. OB already told me I would likely need to stop work at 34 weeks.
I didn't even have to ask and the OB was writing up the referral for the 12 week scan and NIPT. Still not sure which NIPT I'll be able to do as there are two but they have Harmony, Panorama or Genesis at the clinic my referral is for for the scan and blood test. The test is in 2.5 weeks and I'm excited as my husband will be in town and be able to be there for them. At 41 I am obviously nervous for the results.
I always thought I didn't want to know the gender but I think that was when I was having one. The OB almost told me the gender of one today and was thankful she asked before telling. My husband and I discussed it and if the genetic testing goes well we think we'll find out but not tell anyone. Might be easier planning wise for us.
Still nauseous but got back to the gym. Which helps with the nausea as I get up at 5am those mornings, eat and take 1/2 a pill. Those days I seem to be ahead of the nausea whereas this morning with a 6:15 wakeup I was not and it was a long day of it.
