  • Thurs is my first u/s. Also very nervous! I will be 10 weeks. My very first appt was last week and I was super disappointed that they couldn't do u/s that day. I have Not been having any pregnancy symptoms so trying not to worry but it's hard not to. 
  • Finally have my first appointment on Wednesday. Can't wait to hear babes heartbeat!

    Thursday is my first official OB appointment. I'll have an ultrasound and blood work. 
    Question? I had a genetic screen done with my first about 2 years ago. Has anyone had it redrawn with their second? The secretary mentioned it being part of the labs and am going to discuss it with my OB, but I'm mainly curious if anyone has had it done twice. I also had my blood type screened and see no need for a repeat on that unless I am misinformed. 

    ETA The genetic screen was for me to see if I was a carrier for any genetic disorders, I was negative for all I was tested for. 
  • Had my first appointment but it was just bloodwork. We already went to a boutique And heard a healthy heartbeat. My ultrasound at the dr isn't till 12 weeks/on September 1st.

    My first ultrasound is tomorrow and I am so nervous. *TW* The last time, in January, I found out I had a blighted ovum. I am hoping for much better news this time!
    Good luck to you!

    My OB did not order the genetic screens again for me (though we still did a bunch of other blood work - like 6 vials) since I tested not a carrier 4 years ago. 
  • I have my third appointment on Wednesday (9w5d) to go over my blood sugar numbers to make sure she is ok with what they are at or if I need to go on insulin.

  • Found a place to take me for my first appointment Friday, cannot wait to see what's going on in my ute and hopefully hear that heartbeat.
  • blood tests today .... always difficult as I have deep veins. 

    first us on Saturday- but I'm not getting my hopes up.  it's with a tech so I'm not sure if they will let me see.  I follow up with my OB next Tuesday for results. I'm hoping they will let me peek... but I'm not banking on it

  • First appointment is on Thursday! I remember with my last pregnancy the first appointment was really like a confirmation oh yet your pregnant and lets talk about what to do and not do.  I REALLY hope I get to at least hear a heart beat...that is kind of all I want at this point...I am always worried in the beginning. I am going to see if they can do a dopplar or something that can hear it at this stage...I am only 7w4d
  • I have a follow up on Thursday. I'll be 7w4d. Two weeks ago when I had my first appointment, they couldn't find the heartbeat bc they thought I wasn't as far along. I'm anxiously awaiting this Thursday to ease my mind!
  • @Gingham What awesome news! I think your reaction is totally valid. Congrats!

  • @Gingham, I can't even imagine the mix of emotions you're feeling right now. So happy to hear about 3 healthy heartbeats though!!! Congratulations!!!
  • @Gingham that's awesome news!
  • Just had my first appointment today at 11 weeks. They gave me a prescription for a dating ultrasound since I went to 42 weeks last time and they want to make sure it's right so they're not pressuring an induction early without knowing, so I'm trying to decide if I want to do that. Heard the heartbeat for the couple seconds that she could find it.

  • @ABombard12 this exact thing happened to me last week! So disappointing! So here I am waiting for my ultrasound which is today, finally! And I was 8+ weeks when I went the first time. 

    @Gingham congratulations! That is super exciting! I'm sure there'll be many people to jump in and help!
  • @kiki75 Haha, no I totally get it. With my first I totally would have been all about it, this time it's just like "eh another appointment...?" I mean, I'm excited about the baby, but not about having to leave my house at this point. It's not THAT much, but still enough of a co-pay to make me think twice before going in.

    I did decide to pass on it. I mean, my midwife and I did talk about the date and she went through my chart with me. I was pretty spot on, and took multiple tests that were negative before one came up positive, so I know the exact date that the first positive came, the exact date I ovulated, and the exact date we had sex. I know an ultrasound would confirm it but we both felt pretty confident after the appointment so it was more of a to set your mind at ease kinda thing. 

    I do know about the induction fear though. DS was born at 42 weeks, went into active labor 12 hours before my induction was scheduled and he was born 3 hours before I was supposed to report to the hospital. But when he came out he had all the signs of a late baby so we were pretty certain my dates were correct with him as well.
