I am offically thru the first trimester and had my first appointment with Karen today. She has an office now up in Charlestown WV that she shares with an accupunturist, so I drove out there today and got to see her apprentice. (Karen was out at an Amish birth today.) I loved the building. It was a cool old victorian in downtown Charlestown and her apprentice was really helpful. She was young, maybe a couple years older than me and she had this really pretty little tree branch tatoo on her foot kind of spread across it. Other than the tatoo though she was mostly dressed like a grad school student on vacation. But man her tatoo was so cool.
I got to listen to the baby's heartbeat but it took her a while to find him as he was so sneaky. Karen's going to do blood work for me this time which is nice. I'm glad that she can do it and I don't have to go to the doctor to get it done. Otherwise everything was normal and the baby is measuring right for the due date so that's comforting.
I also found yet another 200 dollar thing that is SO cool but I will never afford. Ben thinks he can make it for me if he has the time. Okay I'm gonna try a link.
