Hi there! I am pregnant with my first child...I will be 5 weeks tomorrow.
I did some research and heard alot of good things about Dr. LeBlanc at OGA in Webster and decided I would like her to handle my prenatal care and delivery. Unfortunately, she did not have any available appointments until February, which would have put me about 10 weeks.
Since this is my first baby, I was hoping to get in sooner (I have no idea what to expect from all this other than the research I've done online). I was able to get an earlier appointment for January 23rd with her nurse practitioner, Amy. I will be 7 weeks when I go.
I am wondering what I should expect for my first appointment with Dr. LeBlanc's nurse from those who have used her in the past? Is it possible that I will get my first ultrasound at this first appointment to see the heartbeat? I'm not sure what to expect since I'm seeing her nurse initially instead of the doctor.
If she doesn't do first ultrasounds that early, does anyone know when she normally does them? Everything still seems a little "unreal" to me, so I'm eager to get to actually SEE something, even if it's just the tiny flickering heartbeat.
Thanks for the help!
