I'm very very very happy to report that my 1st appt (which included a u/s) went well....

Dr is setting my due date at Nov 30th based on LMP...based on ovulation its Dec 1. I figure since babies never come when they're supposed to, it's all the same.

The baby's actually measuring a couple days ahead (8w6d) and had a great hb of 170! Can't begin to tell you what a relief that is....the PA indicated that based on the heartbeat that my chance for a m/c drops to 5-8% (which is great, i guess, but still high enough to make us wait until end of first tri to announce to people).

And we got pictures! It was a different experience this time around with the u/s...everything went fast and the zipped out some photos for us right away. So here's our little one - i think they said the baby is right around 1 inch now (so tiny!) and the technician showed us it's little arm & leg buds!







Only bad news from the appt is that I'm dehydrated (ugh) - not badly enough for them to send me to ER, but enough to get a lecture...they do understand how i'm struggling even on the m/s meds, so they want me to monitor fluid intake more (sigh). Also got a PAP and bloodwork, but hopefully nothing bad comes back in those results.

I go back in about 3 1/2 weeks for another appt - i think so the dr can listen to the hb on doppler.

YAY for a great appointment. Make sure you drink lots of water, I use to put some lemon in my water, it makes it feels like you are drinking something else
I also waited until the end of the first trimester to tell most of the family, my mom and sister knew, the rest found out the day that we went for our 12w appointment and we heard the hb.
I'm so happy for you Lara.

Danielle - I hope you're right!! But not because I wouldn't want a boy - I've been telling DH that I'm PRAYING this one is a girl b/c if my m/s is this bad with a boy I seriously don't know if I could ever handle pregnancy with a girl. At least if it's a girl I could have hope that another pregnancy (assuming it was a boy) would go a little easier with the m/s....

One funny story from the u/s i should have included....as soon as the technician said "so there's your baby" my husband's says "There's only ONE right??? If there's two she's going to KILL ME!" the technician just started laughing....

I'm glad you had a good appointment, and yay for a heartbeat!

As far as morning sickness....I can tell you the boy/girl thing is a myth. I didn't have any m/s at all with my daughter....with my son they had to hospitalize me several times because of the m/s.

Yeah, I'm so happy everything went great, other than your fluids, carry a bottle of water everywhere you go.

I have 2 boys and a baby girl and had no m/s with my boys but man did I have it bad with my little girl.
