First appt update!

I'm so behind!
I went on Monday for my first appt. They had me at 6 weeks 5 days with an EDD of April 17th. So 7 weeks today! Yay!
Anyways, they did the normal weight, height, blood pressure, pelvic exam and all that fun stuff, pushed on my already very sore boobs-the doctor kept apologizing the entire time and 5 viles of blood which i'm now sporting a nice lovely bruise from-awesome!
Loved loved loved the doctor. He was great. I go back Sept 20th which will put me at 10 weeks 1 days. I'm assuming we will do a heartbeat check at that point? I forgot to ask.:rolleyes:
I will only get the one ultrasound at 20 weeks because of insurance unless medically necessary. I'm a little bummed about that, but i'll live.
So that's my update.

Yay for a great appointment! Minus all the poking and proding of course. Its nice you get to go back soon and hear the heartbeat. I will only get 1 dating sonogram and 1 ultrasound at 20 weeks as well. If you are really wanting to see your little one after that I know you can just pay out of pocket for one of those 4d ultasounds. Some med spas around me even do it for pretty cheap.
