I have my very first appointment with my OB tomorrow. I know you girls have them from the very start, but in my backwards country we share anti natal care between practitioner and the OB. so at 24 weeks i'm going to the hospital antenatal clinic. I'm so happy, nervous, excited, anxious...

when is your next appointment ladies?

Good luck!!!

My next is April 17th, I go every month.

We decided to get the 3D/4D ultrasounds at this place in Philly. It's about $295 for 2 sessions and you get a dvd with music, color pics, etc at both appointments!

OMG I know. My little ticker thing moved up a baby and I almost panicked!

Then BF tells me this weekend that he thinks we shouldn't move yet that we should just fix up the place we live in now. I mean he is probably right because we can really afford this place and moving right now would suck but there is a HUGE list of things that need to be fixed in our apartment before I will let the baby live there. Two rooms would need painted (because paint is actually falling off the walls) and the shower would need retiled (because several tiles have fallen off the walls) and the kitchen floor I swear has been there since the place was built in the 50's and WILL NOT come clean to save my life....that is just to name a few things.

My next appointment is April 11th.

i am so excited, it'll be the first appointment bf is able to make it to, we will likely hear the heartbeat and get a referral for an ultrasound.

Right now i go every four to six weeks.

i'm back, went so well, everything is going great. i'm a bit anemic, but some over the counter iron tablets should fix it up.
its such a relief to be told that everything is going well and is normal.

just wish i had another u/s so i could know the sex....

I'm glad everything went well at your first appointment. That sucks that they didn't give you another u/s. I really wanted to get the 4d too, but i didn't have the money.
