  • Why would someone bash?
    Odds are no you wont, I am not sure that the Dr. would even try. If he does try there is a small cahnce that you could hear it.
    They will weight you and all that fun stuff, Might draw blood if they haven't already. Basically just a how ar eyou feeling appointment. Make sure to write down any questions you have for him and make sure to ask. If you are having bad morning sickness too tell him. Good luck

  • I didn't hear my son's heartbeat until 16 weeks. I'm sure you won't be able to hear the heartbeat at 9 weeks. I've never heard of anyone hearing it that early...although they can see it beating on the monitor. Like the FP said, they will weigh you, draw blood maybe, urine test, measure your uterus possibly. Nothing too exciting.

  • my first visit was at 8 1/2 weeks w both kids.
    they did a pelvic exam and pap smear, vaginal ultrasound and went over paper work for all the genetic testing (whether or not you want to do it).

    if they did that at your first apt, then this time you may just egt an ultrasound to see the heartbeat. it usually cant be heard w a doppler until after 10 weeks, and then it just depends on the position of the placent as well. my ob coukdnt here it at the 12 week apt bc of the placenta, so she did an ultrasound and saw it.

    good luck!
