First Appointment Scheduled

First appointment is Tuesday, May 3rd so one week from today. I am really nervous. I just want everything to be okay because right now I don't have the morning sickness so it's hard to feel pregnant. I mean I have the fatigue, crampy feelings, constipation, frequent urination, and tender breasts but I guess I should just feel sick in my mind. Maybe I should be thankful I am not sick Smile I just want to get to this appointment and make sure everything is okay. They wanted to schedule it for Friday but I have to work. I hope everyone and all the little beans are doing well.

I know how you feel, some days I'm so nauseous and others I don't feel pregnant at all! I've heard the same thing from many people here so I'm pretty sure it's normal! Good luck at your appt next week! Keep us posted!!

Yay for 1st appointments! Mine is next week too, May 5th and I am super excited. Do you think that you will get an early U/S?

As for the symptoms- you sound exactly like me. Some days I even forget that I am pregnant! I'm only 4weeks 5days right now though.

I tell you a week is taking forever! But i have my first appt tomorrow. I too cannot wait to see how everything is going in there. I feel sick but i dont have tender breasts and I am way more tired than i thought i was in prev. pregnancies. I have loads of questions(wierd for a fifth timer huh?). I hope i get an early u/s. I didnt last time. I waited until the 13 week nuchal screen.

Good luck at your appt. I am sure no M/S isnt nessecarily a bad thing. Lots of women dont get sick and everything is fine.

I hope to get an early ultrasound. It would be a nice early Mother's Day and Anniversary present. Our 5 year anniversary is May 6 Smile If we get the ultrasound we plan on putting a copy in the Mothers Day cards to break the news that way.

Jessicah that sounds like a great plan for the big reveal! Smile What a great mother's day and anniversary gift!!! Happy 5 years Smile

Last time I told the doctor I didn't know when my last period was becuase I am so irregular and that I had some spotting (both not true, besides the irregularity) so I was able to get an u/s in the office that day along with a dating u/s at 10weeks.

My game plan is to talk about my irregular cycles but show my chart and then *knock on wood* tell a small fib about spotting to try and get an u/s at my appt next week. I'm horrible but I plan on telling my boss' boss after I get back so I want to make sure things are looking ok before I let the news out even further.

I will only be 6 weeks next week so I don't know how much they'll be able to see at that point. That's why I was so surprised when she went ahead and scheduled me. Could be because of my history with the miscarriage last year and then with my daughter I had gestational diabetes so I am considered high risk.

Jessicah~I hope your appointment goes well and puts all your fears to rest (at least for a little while). I will keep you in my thoughts an prayers. I am about six weeks too and I have on and off symptoms (sore breasts, on and off nausea and cramping).

On a separate note, I am jealous that you all are having your appointments so soon. My first is not until the 20th of May. They won't even see me before 9 weeks.

Angela~You're tricky. I will have to try that next time. Wink

Yeahh!! My first appt is tomorrow, so besides all of the boring pap smear and "feeling me up" nonsense I'm hoping to at least hear that little heartbeat lol! Good luck!
