I'm in a glass case of emotion.

My initial prenatal appointment is in three hours and 30 minutes. I'm wigging out. Last time, I didn't make it to my first prenatal appointment. I had my first ever pregnancy-related ultrasound in an ER, and it was of an empty uterus. I would have been almost 8 weeks.

I'm really scared about my appointment. I don't know what to expect... I'm not seeing "my" midwife, because she had to go out of town. I'm seeing someone COMPLETELY new to me... And... I'm freaking out. I don't know what happens at these appointments. Thankfully my mom's going to be with me, or I'd be a TOTAL wreck.

Blech.

Sorry you're having a tough time. We've all been there. The first few appt's are awful because you're always expecting bad news.

I hope everything looks great. Keep us updated. Good luck and welcome to the board!

Lots of prayers and support going with you.
Most likely they will talk to you about your history and see if you have any questions. I would for sure mention your fears about another m/c and see if they can do an u/s either in office or otherwise to help ease your fears. Many times they can. Not always though. Sometimes seeing someone new is good . I know I was supposed to see a different dr with my third pregnancy. I was so nervous but it turned out that he was amazing and I was so grateful for that as I went through 2 losses and now this pregnancy. Let us know how it goes. And I agree afternoon appointments are torture.

I hope everything went well. I had that feeling with this pregnancy because I didn't make it to my first prenatal appointment with the previous two pregnancies.

hope your appt went well! They are nerve-racking for me too, but were especially so in the first 16 weeks

I hope everything is well with your baby. The first appts can be so scary when you have had a loss.
