Like the title says, I had my first prenatal appointment today with my favorite midwife in the practice I go to. It was all the typical family history, blood work (I also opted for the quad screening again just for kicks and the NT scan) and physical exam. We didn't listen for the heartbeat because it's so early, but having had a u/s last week I'm not worried.
I go back at 13 weeks and have my NT scan the day before my appointment. Because I had preterm labor and delivery with DD, they recommended I do these progesterone shots from 16 to 36 weeks (once a week at the office) as they've prevented preterm delivery in all their other patients thus far. They didn't mention any risks but I'm going to double check at 13 weeks. I totally trust my team there and going as close to/a little past my EDD is really important for me. I didn't have many issues with DD but it was still hard on me having her early.
She seemed to think my uterus was a little bit larger for 8 weeks but wasn't concerned.
Thanks for letting me share!
