  • some doctors like to do ultrasounds first so that they know exactly how far along you are

  • I had an ultrasound before my first exam as well. They date the pregnancy so the doc has as much info as possible. You get to see your baby soon, yay!

  • with both my kids i had ultrasound first,its just a precaution some docs like to do first,to see how far along you are and to check baby and you are ok.there fine and you have nothing to worry about.

  • Most likely to confirm your dates, since he won't be able to get a heartbeat this early.
