Does/did someone go with you to your appointments, or do/did you go alone?

I always went to mine alone. Well, my midwife did home visits, but Stu never felt the need to be at one

justin usually can't get away from work. he is a production manager (and we work at the same place).
he has to set an example of not missing work for his people. plus, sometimes i think he is more work-oriented than he is me-oriented.
I have an u/s friday morning and he did say he will try to go with me. i hope he does b/c i am nervous if we will see a heartbeat or not. on the other hand i guess i am used to dealing with it by myself. i have been to the doctor 4 times and the hospital once (for labs due to spotting) so far this pregnancy and he hasn't been with me any of those times.

Sorry I just saw this now! Opps!

DH comes with me to all u/s and hospital visits but he doesn't come to every OB appt because basically it's two seconds but you have to wait over an hour so you miss a lot of work. At first he came when things were shaky.

Nick went with me until he went on 1st shift. But after that I went alone for the most part.

with our last pregnancy Mick was able to go to all appts.
so far he has only been able to go to one with me this time....which gets him bummed out...but his mom goes with me to some which is fun! LOL
He is taking off for the BIG U/S in Feb though !

the girls go with me because we homeschool and they are always with me lol.... but it's too hard to work around Jamie's schedule so he doesn't go. the u/s he went to, but not regular appointments. not too much goes on during those anyways!

DH went to the gender u/s, but I think that was about it. It was hard with him being in the army though. He would always get really dissapointed, especially if he missed an u/s.

His loss! Gabby is such a beautiful baby!


DH tries to make the BIG appointments but I normally go by myself to the small month to month ones.

For the most part I go to my appts by myself. But I have been having them scheduled on Mondays here lately, which is one of my hubby's days off. If it is on a Monday, then he will go depending on what is suppose to happen at that appt!! He will be going to my appt this Monday since it is with the maternal-fetal dr and we will be having an u/s. I dont know if he will go to my next one next Monday since it will probably be a quick OB visit!!

Steve goes with me if he's off work, but with his job (firefighter) he can't really take off work unless it's an emergency.
