When did you get the 1st ultrasound?

I am so excited because I have my first appt for this pregnancy this morning! I am wondering how common it is for them to give you an ultrasound the first visit. (I'm 8 weeks) I am going to see a midwife who works in an OB/GYNs office so they probably have an ultrasound machine. My early prenatal care with my first pregnancy was not here, it was in Canada, so I don't really know what to expect.

My first appt, with both pregnancies they did a pap, since it had been over 6 months since my last one...um..lots of paperwork, some blood work..just stuff like that.  My first baby, i never got an ultrasound..my OB didn't do them.  My 2nd baby, my first ultrasound came at 13wks due to some bleeding issues I had.  (actually thought I was 10 wks at that appointment..so it was a nice suprise to go in to the appointment in my first trimester and come out of the appointment in my 2nd trimester..LMAO!)

 I had a vaginal one at 11 weeks, but I think it was bc I wasn't sure how far along I was...GOOD LUCK! I hope you get to see your baby :)

Thanks for the replies! I am always paranoid that I'm pregnant with twins (not that it would be a bad thing), so I really want to see what's going on in there!!

If I remember right...on my first they did weight, blood pressure and a urine test, they asked when your last period was..and gave an estimated due date. The ultrasound was done with a wand that is inserted....that's about it...

 On my first visit they talked to me and did a sonogram to tell how far along I was. It is completely normal for them to do one.

With my son I didn't have an ultrasound until 20-21 weeks.
With this one I have a feeling I will have one at my appt on Dec 1st because I have no clue how far I am.

I had a vaginal one at 10 weeks, but mine was because they weren't finding a heartbeat. So they did the u/s to see if they could see the heart beating.

My first and only one was done at 20weeks. I had to go the hospital to have it done b/c they don't do them at my MD's office.
