Im having my first next week when I am 8 weeks. Id wait till your a lil further tho becuz if its too soon itll be uneventful. And if you don't hear a heart beat becuz you aren't far enough along itll be on your mind 24/7.
Mine was scheduled for the 13th, but i had two little spots of blood and got scared so i called the Dr. and they took me yesterday the 6th for an u/s. it revealed that i was 6 weeks 6 days. she zoomed in to check the heartbeat and i could see the heart fluttering. We couldn't hear it yet, but she was able to measure it at 146 bpm. she told us that's very strong
My doctors office just decided when my first appointment was. I called a couple days after I found out was pregnant. I was 8wks. I got to see my baby. Couldn't hear a heart beat but they told me the bpm. I also got to see the spine (BC that had formed). They also had to do blood work and other basic stuff. Probably better to get that over with as soon as possible. I enjoyed my first doctor visit and it put my mind at ease about some things! Hope you enjoy yours and congrats.
I'm not very happy right now. Called in to see when they would want to see me and they started out w/ March 6th--almost 12 wks by then! Got them to move it up a wk; still seems way out especially w/ me being high risk. At least you girls are getting in earlier.
I called in to the nurse to ask when they usually see someone for their 1st appt. She said around 10 1/2 wks but if I wanted to I could come in sooner; so I get to go in on Mon. Feb 18th. Praying we find a heartbeat!
I had my first appointment on the 15th but all they did was urine and blood tests... Scheduled an ultrasound for when I'm 10 weeks along. I'm 8 weeks now though. It's totally different now than with my first pregnancy.
My first apt will be the 21st feb. They told me march 20 at another dr. So i found someone not over booked. And i made my apt today the 19th. I am high risk and have way to much anxiety to wait. This is my fourth pregnancy hoping my 3rd child :)
Best of luck to all at your upcoming appts! Didn't get to hear the heartbeat w/ the Doppler and started preparing for the worst; but got to see the little flicker on the ultrasound; nice and fast. Older ultrasound so it was quite hard to see but it was there!
