First Prenatal Appt?

Just curious if anyone else has their first prenatal appt set up yet? Or if you have already had it, how did it go?

My first appt is June 29, the day after we get back from our vacation in New York City. Looking forward to it, as I am always a nervous wreck until I hear the first heartbeat.

I guess I've had my prenatal appointment with my GP a couple of weeks ago. Right after the fertility clinic contacted me about my BFP (via urine test at the lab) I contacted my GP right away and she got me in the next day on June 1. But it was just testing with another urine test. She's scheduled me for a physical exam June 25. She sent a referral over to my OB, but who knows when I'll get in....

I have a 7w U/S scheduled which was set up by the fertility clinic - in fact I need to get the req from them right before I had over to the U/S place down the hall from them. It's this coming Monday, June 18. I've been excited so far during this pg, but now I'm getting quite nervous. I hope it will be good and we see a baby or two there!

I had my appt with my family Dr the day we found out, but that was just sending me for a blood test to confirm. I see him again at the end of this month, and then my first appt with the OB is July 4th.
I'm a worrier and a planner, so I'm really anxious to hear the heartbeat and find out that everything is OK!

I know how you feel! I won't be able to really relax until I hear that heartbeating :biglove:

It will be extra special because my mom will be with me this time (I lived too far away when I had my DD). Good luck on the 4th!

My first appt isn't until 7/26! I was unsure of the exact day of my last period, so the receptionist scheduled it based on the last day in may to "make sure you're far enough along to see something." eh, ok I guess. I should be about 9 weeks at that time. I know it'll be here before I know it though!

My first appt is next week, the 27th and I can't wait!! I had a ruptured cyst right at the same time as getting pregnant and am feeling strange sharp pains (that of course im not used to being as this is my first pregnancy) so I think I'm extra nervous. Probably more than I really need to be. It'll bring me a lot of relief just to know all is well with baby. Smile

My first appointment is June 28th. They said its a long one and to expect to be there awhile talking through a lot of information. I will also be getting an ultrasound and blood test done at the appointment to try to determine if the baby is growing in the right place.

Good luck on your appointment tomorrow! I hope you get to see/hear a nice strong h/b!!

I need to make an appointment with my OB. I've just been in denial, I think. I want to keep seeing my RE but she's going to release me after my next u/s. She usually doesn't keep seeing patients this long but with my history of m/c she's made an exception. I just love her sooo much...I'm going to miss her. Sad

I had my first appt today! It went really well. Smile I was surprised that we did an u/s, since with my son we did one at 12 weeks. Baby measured 7w5d, so my EDD was changed to 2/9. Heartbeat was 152. Huge relief!!

I had my first appointment yesterday, really just a chat though with lots of blood drawn and some urine samples for all their initial screenings to make sure I'm basically healthy. I'll have an u/s done int he next 2 weeks or so as well, just waiting on the call about when they can get me in for it.

I can't wait to see Jr and hear the heartbeat, I don't think I'll be able to relax completely until after that. Despite m/s and horrible acid reflux already it just doesn't feel real yet lol.
