  • @tvh1982 It is so great to be on this board together :) I still could not decide when I should tell my Mom, I am hoping that it will feel more `real` after I start to tell people.

  • Hello, its my first pregnancy and I'm pretty nervous. 
    My first appointment is Monday! 
    I have a few questions as to what will be taking place at the doctors. 
    First,will I be getting a due date ? 
    Secondly, will I get an ultrasound? 
    And thirdly, should I start rakog prenatal vitamins or wait until after the appointment?

  • Hi @alysiaaa, I can not answer the first two questions, as I am pretty clueless myself.
    But about prenatal vitamins; yes take them!
    GL to you on monday!

  • @Alysiaaa - All doctors do things a little differently.  Do you have an idea of your due date?  Most doctors will give you a general due date based off the first day of your last period.  

    Usually the first appointment is just an introductory appointment, possibly with some blood drawn.  It is possible the doctor will have an ultrasound machine in the room and do one, but I would assume not. 

     For me I've always been set up for another ultrasound appointment around 8 or 9 weeks - they then give a more accurate due date based off the size.  But I know some places don't do an ultrasound until 20 weeks.  It's rare I think, though. Yes, you should definitely be taking prenatal vitamins now.  They usually stay down better if you take one right before bed.

  • @Alysiaaa  My doctor does a transvaginal ultrasound at the first appointment. He's then able to give me a more exact due date based on the measurements. As far as vitamins, yes absolutely!

    congrats :)

    Hello!  EDD is Nov 9;  My husband and I had a CP miscarry at 6 weeks in December so it's hard to stay excited as I'm constanly worrying about something going wrong.  Last time the lines stayed very light but this time they have progressed to darker than the control line so hopefully everything continues in a positive direction!
    Welcome! A lot of mamas here have unfortunately miscarried in the past ( myself included) so you'll have lots of people who can understand your emotions.
