Wish me luck girls, tomorrow is finally my first appointment! I'm so excited, I've been waiting since I made the appointment at 4 1/2 weeks!

I'm not entirely sure what to expect...pee in a cup, lots of questions...etc?

The appointment is at 10am, so at least I don't have to wait through the whole day first, and DH is coming with (he's just as excited as I am).



*Update*:

So we're home and the appointment went great. The did bp, weight, pap test, NO peeing in a cup, got referrals for blood tests and ultrasound (at 20 weeks ) and the BEST part....


WE GOT TO HEAR THE HEARTBEAT!!!

It was 164bpm!

The doctor was super nice. (I am very happy she speaks perfect English..I live in Quebec and she is French, but speaks English ...phew!).

Now I can't wait for the ultrasound..gonna call and make the appointment now. Next OB appointment in 6 weeks (April 27).

I know that each appointment is pretty much the same...pee in cup, vital signs(bp, temp, pulse), doppler hb check and fundal height check. Then on certain appointments more is done, ie glucose testing, u/s, group beta test....but those are later...

I have over a week still...

Glad your appointment went well and you were able to hear the heartbeat!

Surprised you didn't have to pee in a cup but I'm sure you didn't miss doing that. lol

I'll have to pee in a cup when I do the blood work through the hospital she's affiliated with.

that's great that your appointment went well! i'm still waiting for my first one on Mar 27. I'm not really looking forward to the whole head-to-toe physical, though. aaand i would pee in a cup any day rather than more vaginal exams! lol

Sounds like a great appointment.

And yay for hearing the heartbeat. My doc told me with my last pregnancy that once you hear the heartbeat through the doppler there was a less than 5% chance of miscarriage.
