I just found out I have to wait until 10 weeks to peek at our mustard seed! I'll be 7 weeks Friday. That's like a whole month almost! I'm gonna die. This whole time I thought well I'm 7 weeks, I thought okay they will at least want to see a blob and heartbeat. Nope. I know that's kinda normal I'm just like gahh really?

I guess my appointment on Friday is just to take labs and talk with a nurse. Why did I have to wait 2 weeks to do that?

I called because I have been having very light off and on brown spotting and spoke with a nurse and she went over symptoms on the phone to make sure it's not ectopic and she said it doesn't sound like it is because my pain is very minimal and not constant. Then I asked about my appointment Friday and I got that news. She was very very nice about it, she said I know you are excited, but you just have to trust your body is doing wonderful things and taking care of itself. But it will be better later on because you will be able to see some little movement and better detect the heartbeat. In case you are earlier on you won't be worried or disappointed. I was like but I'm disappointed now! LOL!

Anyone else have to wait a long time?

I am sorry that you are disappointed with when you'll see the little bean. I know how hard it is to wait. I am being seen July 30th and will be 7 wks 5 days by then . DR said bloodwork with an u/s but I think that is only due to my 3 losses previously and my age. Keep your chin up, time will fly by and you will be posting a gorgeous picture before we know it,

My doc wants an US this week (yeah it took me by surprise) to check on implantation, and I'm pretty sure he'll have another one in week 8 to get the heartbeat. But I guess he's being overprotective because of my history!
I didn't wanna do it this soon, for me 7weeks something would be fine! But in your place I would be upset as well, mainly because of curiosity!
It will be here before you know it!

I am not getting in to see my new OB until around the 7 week mark and I am guessing I will not get an US until a couple weeks after, which is hard for me. My old OB used to do a tvus in her office at all my early appointments starting at 6 wks.

Sorry you have to wait so long. I couldn't make it. I have my 2nd ultrasound 7/31 and will be 8 weeks 3 days, but I'm pregnant through IVF. We have had a long and rough road ttc and have already found an elective ultrasound office that we will visit several times just to check on the baby/babies. I'm not sure what they have near you, but here, starting at 8 weeks for $60 you can get a quick peek of the baby and have the heartbeat recorded in a stuffed animal. You may want to check and see what is near you. Good luck.

I have to wait way longer. I don't get an ultrasound until between 17-20 weeks.

I'm going through a midwife this time and my first appt is at 10 weeks (8/22), when with my OBs it was around 8. We're not telling family for another 2 weeks and we'll go public when we hear a heartbeat. It is hard to wait for that first appt. You have to wait to test and then when you get that BFP, you sit around and wait more lol. I do agree though that later U/S are more reassuring and more fun because bean isn't just a blob anymore. Maybe you can pick up a new hobby to keep you busy?

As it happens im having my first us at just before 7 weeks but thats because im high risk of ectopic. Usually though over here in tge uk I dont think you get an u/s until around 12weeks. I hope the time flies by for you!
