First Doctor's Appt!

We had our first doctor's appointment today to confirm the pregnancy and we got to see the first glimpse of our jellybean. :) It really does look like a jellybean right now... and it's about the size of one, too! The doctor says everything looks perfect, we got to see and hear the heartbeat which was the most amazing moment EVER, and I'm 6w4d along...EDD December 7th. :) I guess I can stop worrying that I'm not really pregnant now! What an incredible experience. We go back on May 9th for the longer appointment where we'll do all of the testing and ask all of our questions (and I'm sure I'll have 1,000). Any questions that you suggest I add to my list? ;)


For some reason, the pic is uploading upside down, but here he/she is:

How exciting! I had my first ultrasound at 6w4d too and I called him our little "bubble" cause that's exactly what he looked like! haha and that's great you got to hear the heartbeat so soon! We were only able to see it that early on. Congrats again!

I can't believe you could see and hear the heartbeat that early!  We couldnt hear ours until we were way further into the pregnancy.


How exciting though!  The one thing I wasn't expecting on my first appointment was having an exam so if you haven't had a Pap within the last year, they'll do one, just FYI.  Well at least my doctor's office did.

Thanks ladies! It really is amazing to have our first picture...and DH took video, too! All I want to do is stare at it. Is this what being a momma is like? :)

DH was able to come, thankfully! I never expected to be able to see anything this early, but there it was... I thought at first it was my own heartbeat and asked the doctor, and she said, nope... that's your baby's! Crazy.

On the 9th they're going to do all of the blood tests and family history, etc. etc. She said that appointment will be about an hour and a half long. And thanks for the warning about the pap AuntTate - at least I'll be prepared if need be!!

Okay, so our first and second appts were switched, Jenny. My first appt they did blood work, family history and pap (no one warned ME ;) ) my second appt will be my ultrasound... My first appt was only about 45mins but they said my second will be 90? So weird!

It's funny how each doctor does things so differently, Claire! Maybe they'll be going over test results and things with you during the second appointment? Can't wait for you to see the little one! :)

That first appt is the best ever! It confirms all your "am I really pregnant? what if something happend between the BFP and the appt?" thoughts. And seeing our lil cupcake was the icing on the cake. My Dr. did the initial bloodwork then too and asked about family history and was able to point out the hb but we couldn't hear it until we went for the 12 week nucal scan. I don't tire of hearing our baby girl's hb at each check up appt either!
