First Appointment

Hi everyone,

I had my first appointment with a new dr. I was a little nervous going to a new dr and group, but I just LOVE her and the practice. She very relaxed, knowledgeable, and flexible. When I went in, they did my annual pap and then an ultrasound. They have u/s machines in each of the rooms! How cool is that! It might be standard for most. She did it herself and I saw my baby, the heartbeat, and it was flipping around in there. I was so very happy. It measured exactly according to my ticker.

She saw the subchorianic hemorrhage and it is small. I can still feel it and I could tell her exactly where it was. She said it's going to be alright and not to worry.

That sounds great!!

My practice has an ultrasound room and some that they can wheel into the other rooms if they need to. I have always been jealous of the women who get multiple u/s! We got one early on because of my ectopics and won't get another until 22ish weeks and then we will be done.

Me too! Medical ultrasounds are just so expensive in my area, and it's hard to find insurance that covers imaging of any kind. That's why I'll be getting my medical u/s at a crisis center (I'll leave a donation as a thank you, and yes, they know I'm not in crisis), and then we'll learn the gender through a non-medical u/s.
