My first doctor's appointment where they do the transvaginal ultrasound, isn't until Monday, Sept. 25. That's when blood work is done too. I'll be 8 weeks then. After that, we will start telling family.

I'm not really sure. I did my first blood draw today and go back Wednesday morning for the follow up draw. I want to wait until I'm far enough along that there is sure to be a heartbeat before I schedule an ultrasound. Not finding one and having to wait a week to go back would kill me. I'd rather wait the extra week and then go in. Probably the middle of September sometime.

Wednesday!!!! Can't stinking wait!!! I know it'll still be a couple of weeks before I can get the ultrasound done but I just need the doc to tell me I really am pregnant and not just making the whole thing up in my head so I can truly relax. I'll get all the bloodwork and everything else done at the appt so once I see the number I'll be good.

My doc doesn't schedule anyone before 8 weeks or do blood work before then. Do you think that's strange? Same with my first, too.

I think that is pretty common. I went in this morning without an appointment and asked for the blood work just to make sure that the numbers are rising appropriately. I had a loss before so they are really accommodating in trying to help me relax. They won't do an ultrasound unless the numbers were over a certain level. I don't remember exactly what that level was now. I think I was almost 7 weeks at my first ultrasound.

I had mine this past Friday, was just a confirmation. I did paperwork, and got a script for blood work (they don't do it at the office, need to get it done at hospital).

My first official one is 9/10.

I go in on Wednesday for beta. Since I'm seeing an RE and doing infertility treatments, they monitor me a little closer than if we would have gotten preggers naturally and just seeing our OB/GYN

I will call Thursday to set mine up. My dr office is closed due to Hurricane Isaac and it is barely raining. She usually doesn't bring anyone in until around 7-8 weeks.

it tests the HCG which is a hormone made during pregnancy. It should be doubling about every two-three days during pregnancy. My doctor calls them "quants" but most people on JM call them "betas"

Im not 100% Sure. Im quite annoyed, I called the OB I had with Annalise and they were supposed to call me back today, they never did and I fell asleep at 2:30 and napped till 5:30 (the exhaustion has hit), and no call, no message. :/

I might actually interview a few OB's and run my Natural C Section plan by them and see who will agree. Im still annoyed about them not taking me seriously, but whatever. Im a super planner so the fact that they aren't calling me back and giving me an appt is making me upset... :/

I have to repeat my Beta again after Weds and then the OB at the same facility as my PCP Will book my appt (they want my beta at 500 and it should be there around Friday). There is one other OB I want to call and make an appt with and interview.

ugh. SO COMPLICATED! LOL

Mine is tomorrow (Thurs 8/30) at 11:20CST. They're just "confirming" the pregnancy and giving me an action plan. Can't WAIT until I can see a HB!!!

Since I'm seeing an RE for infertility I'll be having several for the 1st 10wks until he releases me to regular OBGYN dr, which actually is kinda nice! I get to have my first ultrasound next Thurs so super-stoked about that!

I have no idea on mine.

I just got a call back from the fertility clinic and since I wasn't an IVF patient, they basically are referring me back to my GP now instead of following to 10wks like they do with their IVF clients.

ANd of course, I immediately called my GP to find out that she's not working today and I have to call back tomorrow.

At least this way I'll hopefully be able to get bloodwork done since the fertility clinic generally doesn't do it!
