 Finally this day has come for me. It seems like it has been forever which technically it has. Excited and Hoping to hear the heart beat and maybe see the baby, but dreading all the needles and vagina pokings..haha Just praying for a Healthy pregnacy and healthy baby.. :) Update after appt. on how it went and what they did for all you first time moms who wonders what they do on first visits.. Which yes most are diff. but generally do the same.. Appt. July 25th at 1:20pm..

 

**Appt went great. Answered tons of questions, Peed in a cup and Heard the Heartbeat which was 165. My 6 year old son was pure shaking, so I asked him what was wrong and he said he was so excited.. It was so cute he was so happy to be able to come.. I will have my Anatomy Scan on Aug. 22 and will be finding out what we are having.. Yahhh.. So my mind is eased and Im just happy everything went great.. Didnt have to have blood work.. And I think I might be able to not even do it.. So I have alot of thinking to do before the 22nd..

I was 7w4d at my first appointment. They did a lot of bloodwork, health and history questions, ursine sample, weight, blood pressure, and a transvaginal ultrasound.

I did mine out if order but you will probably have blood work done, pee in a cup, height/weight health history, go over questions, and an ultrasound-most likely transvaginal. Advice... Before they draw blood make sure the lab work is covered by your insurance. I have a $250.00 bill to be paid to labcorp when it could have been free if I had it drawn across the street.

ill just say, you dont *have* to do all the bloodwork. if you have a legitimate phobia of needles, you can just decline all of the labwork. that being said, im going to do it just because there is no risk or downside to it.. i hate needles with a passion, but just knowing that the needle is only taking my blood and not injecting me with god-knows-what, i feel more comfortable.
