First Ultrasound Tomorrow

I have my first ultra sound tomorrow and I'm really excited to find out how far along I am exactly. I was wondering about how long it lasts during the exam and is my finance aloud to come to the first visit (They didn't say in the office or on the paper)?

  • Your fiance can most certainly go, that baby is his :)

    If you are under eight weeks expect a short ultrasound, maybe 15 minutes if you are lucky. The ultrasounds tend to get longer the further you get along in your pregnancy because there are more parts and things to checkout and measure.

    I hope you are far enough along to see the little heartbeat. It is a miracle, it really is!

    Good luck and best wishes :)

  • All doctors care the most about the pregnant mother and they encourage your spouse or partner to be there for your support most of all, also if this is the first visit they will want to know both of your health historys anyway so he should go too. The visit wasn't too long though it was like a pap smear with alot of questions and pictures of your baby.

  • Of course he can tag along with you to your ultrasound. My hubby went with me to EVERY single appt. I had with my first pregnancy. Be prepared to tear up a little. I know I did!

    Hope you get to see everything and hope all is well! =)

  • Definitely bring the fiance!! It's such a magical moment to see that little heartbeat, and you'll be happy to share that moment with him. That first appointment, including ultrasound, lasted about 20 minutes or so for me.
