Pregnant after IF

OB after RE 1st appointment

Hi everyone!  I've had 2 Ultrasounds with my RE (last one 2 weeks ago) and I'm seeing my OB for the first time this Friday.  I'll be 11 weeks at that point.  I was just wondering what to expect.  Mainly, will she do another US?  I'm expecting an exam and possibly some bloodwork which I don't want to have my DH to take off work for.  But if she does another US, he won't want to miss that.  Thank you!!! 

Re: OB after RE 1st appointment

  • It will depend on your OB/practice. My OB did a quick ultrasound at my first appointment because I was right around the time when HB may still not be detected by Doppler, but I have friends that didnt have an ultrasound until the anatomy scan at 20 weeks.
  • I see my OB roughly every 4 weeks but I never have a scan with those appts.  They scheduled an ultrasound for 12 weeks and then another for my anatomy scan at 19.  My OB appts are pretty quick and simple - they listen for the HB on the doppler, do a full exam (weight, bp, urine test) and just do a check in to see how everything is going.
