On 02/25 & 02/26, I had my first prenatal OB appointment, first prenatal work up appointment, and first prenatal RE appointment !
After my prenatal work up appointment with my OB’s nurse, I was given a laundry list of blood tests to have done. I only had an hour to get to my RE appointment and the subway was jacked up that day. I ended up taking Uber because I got stranded at 58th street.
I saw my RE, Dr. Tomer Singer, and he made me an appointment to see the high risk maternal fetal medicine specialist at Lenox Hill Hospital. I ended up changing that appointment to next week since I had to be back in Manhattan to see the RE and do the MaterniT21 testing at 10 weeks. After the RE appointment, I went to meet my mom and we then left for Carmines to meet my make up artist for a late lunch.
Since I ran out of time on Friday, I called and found a Quest Labs which was open on Saturday and I took Uber to the lab to have the testing done. It was a ton of genetic screening tests, hiv, rubella, and blood typing testing. They took 16 tubes of blood and a urine sample. All the tests came back normal, so I was relieved.
After meeting with my film crew for dinner, my mom and I took a limo service to the airport. After sitting there for 2 hours, our flight was cancelled. I was livid ! I was glad the plane broke down in Vegas and not while I was on it, but the airline seemed nonchalant about it. I called the airline and told them about the flight while standing in a long line for an hour waiting to get to the counter, and they told me they had no more flights until Sunday. I demanded that they find me a flight with either a nonstop or no more than an hour layover because I was pregnant and traveling with my mom who just finished cancer treatment. They put us on American Airlines in FIRST CLASS !
I stayed in the line and told the rep that I expected hotel vouchers and food and transportation vouchers. They gave us three $14 food vouchers, hotel voucher for the Marriott and a transportation voucher. We ate at one of the restaurants in the airport and saved one voucher for breakfast the day of the flight.
On the plane heading back to paradise and out of the cold NYC air !
Here are a few pics I have been taking of my belly….
I haven’t taken my 9 week photo yet, but will do next week when I am 9 wks 4 days on Tuesday.
I am hoping my belly won’t get too big too fast so that I can keep everything under wraps until I’m ready.
I hope everyone is doing well !!
