See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
I found out I was pregnant when I was about 5 weeks. I called and scheduled an appointment and saw a nurse at 8 weeks to do bloodwork and confirm the pregnancy. They scheduled me 3 weeks later with the doctor. I was almost 13 weeks at this time. I saw the doctor, she did a PAP, listened for a heartbeat, checked my uterus, said things were good, told me to gain 30lbs, said we would do an ultrasound in 6 weeks and sent me on my way. Is this normal? How come everyone seems to be getting ultrasounds and pics of their baby so young and I have to wait until 18 (almost 19) weeks? This is my first and I was so excited just to see my baby. I know it's probably petty but I just want to see what's growing inside me.
