First doctor appointment.

Does anyone have their first appointment scheduled? I am going to talke another test in the morning, and then schedule my first appointment. I was told I get an early u/s with this pregnancy, because of the m/c...So, I am pretty excited about that. With DS, I did not have my first U/S until 18 weeks or so.

Deanna & Tasha - How exciting to get early ultrasounds! I'm sure both your babes will look fantastic!

Mariah - I cannot believe it's only a week away from your wedding!! How amazing! Biggrin

My first appointment is scheduled for the 25th when I'll be just over 8 weeks. I am excited to see my favorite MW in the practice. I don't expect them to try to hear the hb this early but I'm excited to get the first appointment out of the way.

I already had my yearly pap scheduled for 5/23, so I guess that will technically be my first appointment. I won't deliver with that doctor though, I will deliver with the same midwife who delivered my daughter at a free standing birth center where there are no doctors, and I won't have my first appt with her until 10-11 weeks.

I have an intake appointment scheduled at the local military hospital, where I'll have an appointment or two and get my initial bloodwork done. I've already called my homebirth midwife and reserved a spot on her schedule for January. Smile

That's so awesome that you're going to have a homebirth! I would love to have one but I really hate my current house and don't think it's a good place to birth a baby...too much stress from all the problems we're having with it. I'm really excited for you though!

That is awesome, Tasha. I bet that is a huge relief. I go next wednesday and am a little nervous. It will feel real if I see that everything is okay on the u/s.

My first apt will be on Jun 11 at 11!! Can't wait to meet with my midwife (the same who delivered my son in 2008 ).
I'll be at 8 weeks by then.

Yay Tasha!! SO thrilled for you.

Even with an unexpected early u/s the other week, I'm still a little anxious for my "intake" appointment on Friday but I'm excited that it's with my favorite midwife.

I'm so excited for all the ultrasounds and appointments coming up! I can't believe it will be June in just over a week!
