Tomorrow I have my first ever prenatal appointment. I'm super excited, have no idea what to expect and DH just might be able to come with me. I want an ultrasound so bad, but I'm worried they won't give me one until much later. I guess the only way I'll find out is if I go, right?

Also if I'm getting mild cramping (more like a pulling sensation) with no spotting should I consider that a good sign that things are growing?

Good luck tomorrow! I hope you get your US tomorrow, too! I actually have my first 'actual' prenatal appointment tomorrow, too, for this pregnancy (I went in a month ago, but just to date and verify the pregnancy). Prenatal appointments are fun, especially the first one. It makes it all feel more real. I hope you have a good appointment! KUP!

Good luck! I'm sure all will go well.

I was convinced that I was only going to get the 20 week anatomy scan....but last appt I mentioned to my dr that it would nice to see baby, so I'm going for an u/s on the 13th to confirm my due date. I know when my LMP was, but it'll be awesome to see the baby and to find out if my due date is right on.

I'm sure if you request a dating u/s, they'll send you for one. Or you could tell a white lie and say you "can't remember when you had your last period, but you got your BFP on ____, and you just want to know how far along you are."

Well my appointment was nothing to write home about. It basically a meet and greet. I gave her a basic history, she gave me a requsition for bloodwork and a dating u/s (YAY!!) so I can go anytime within a month for the blood work on my own. I might go today just to get it out of the way and they will call me with an appointment time and date for the u/s. I know there isn't really much they can do right now since I'm only 8 weeks. At least I now have someone to call if any problems arise.
