  • Depends on how far along you are. I want to say yes, because here they don't have you come in for your first appointment until you are so many weeks along already ! Then they do one to give you a due date!

  • That's kind of what I thought. I'll be 8 1/2 wks to 9wks when I go in..and the baby's heart should be beating I am anxious to hear it.

  • It depends on how far along you are. If your not sure then they usually do a ultrasound and use the size of the baby to determine how far you are. Otherwise they may not do it till 18-20 weeks unless there's a issue or something.

  • I did. I think it has to do with your type of insurance coverage and your Dr's preference.

  • Yeah, they generally do so that they can get a good idea of your due date, and to check the heart. It's pretty magical! =)
