I had my intake appt yesterday. I got them to move up my first official appt to May 10 from the 22. I was told that I'm guaranteed an u/s on that day. I'll be 12 weeks then. That is like 5 weeks away! So do I sit tight and pretend that I'm patient until then, or hit the mall in a week and a half for an unofficial peek? My DH is willing to do either and is leaving it up to me. I could consider it research as they do the 3d u/s for later on. I want reassurance that the baby is okay and to see if there is more than one in there. The first trimester is always so emotionally and physically trying and its hard to be patient!

I'd go for the sneak peek. I'm terribly impatient and would have to know sooner!

If I was in your situation I would go for the sneak peak too, why not? It will make you feel better. But it's all up to you!

I'd go for a sneek peek too! I went for my first appt today and was told since I was positive about my LMP I wouldn't need an early ultrasound. But I mentioned to my midwife that I really wanted one, so she marked down that I was unsure of my LMP and have one scheduled for next Thursday!

If there was anywhere over here that did it, I'd probably go for a sneak peek

I'll be odd man out, I'd wait. I guess for me, ignorance is bliss. Even if something were wrong, nothing could be done about it. So for me, I assume everything is okay. My earliest u/s have been the mid point u/s. I've never done an elective one, early or later. I had a 2nd one with my oldest to check a bright spot on his heart (turned out to be nothing), a 2nd one with my 2nd kiddo to monitor a cyst(again nothing), and a 2nd and 3rd one with my 3rd kiddo because they were afraid she wasn't growing (she was!).

But if it stresses you out and you don't mind spending the money, then get the sneak peak.

Yeah. You pretty much have to lie about having bad cramps and spotting or something to get an u/s lol

The mall has an ultrasound place that does non diagnostic u/s. You don't need a drs order. They only do abdominal u/s and you need to be 8+ weeks. They do hb checks, gender identification and those really neat 3D pictures. Its only $30 for an early peek or $50 if you want pics too!

Looks like I'm going in. My DH needs an alibi for work and sort of implied that the dates off he requested were for baby things when only one was. My DHs dream job is trying to recruit him. This will be the third interview of sorts. Hrs going in for skills testing. We will hit the mall when he's done!
