Going for my first OB visit today! so excited! Did you have an internal ultrasound on your first visit?

I am having one today!!!!! They do it at my Dr's office to make sure its a good viable pregnancy. And b/c my insurance picks up the cost :)

  • my first visit, was when they used a dopplar to find the heartbeat. but pending on how far along u are, they didnt. if ur like less than 6wks, they said it was too soon to pick it up. i didnt have a ultrasound til i was 11 or 12 weeks.

  • With my pregnancies I chose to have no ultrasounds (any kind) at all. But some have them this early of course.

    Good luck with yours!

  • my first DD is now 5 the doctor I had with her sent me to the hospital for an ultrasound to make sure the baby was ok and how far allong I was I was about 6 or so weeks I had an internal ultrasound done. My second is now 2.5 I had a diffrent OB with her he has the machine in his office so I had one with her it was also internal I was about 8 weeks with her. Internal ultrasounds aren't that bad

  • No, my office doesn't do the sonograms there. But they did order me one on my first visit. And I don't know why people have issues with the internals... I never even felt it. I would prefer it to external that gets you all goopy every time!
