First Appointment

It went well. First I got to answer questions, pee in a cup, be weighed, check my bp (116/74), do a pap and a physical. Then to get a better due date locked in we did an ultrasound. Saw the baby immediately- a wonderful sight! Baby is measuring 8 weeks 6 days, so official due date is 2/2/2012. The tech pointed out that the baby was wiggling its rear end even- so cool! My doctor is very pro VBAC (HE brought it up!) but I'll have time to decide what I want to do. It'll also depend on if the baby is breech (DS was), has OI (Osteogenesis Imperfecta (Type IV)), etc. I'll also be seeing a perinatologist starting around 18 weeks to watch if the baby has signs of it (short femurs etc). The tech said she thinks the placenta will be posterior- YAY!!! Doc says since we saw a good strong fast heartbeat the risk of miscarriage goes down to 3-5%. Here are some pics!

On this second one you can see the yolk sac by the bum

I'd VBAC unless the baby had the same condition.

How exciting that you got a 3d and had such an amazing appt! It's great that your dr brought up a vbac, from what I've been hearing it's very odd for them to even want to do it, good luck!
