Well, I haven't made my first prenatal appt. yet. I'm trying to decide how long I should wait. I'm sure they will do an u/s due to the previous m/c and I want to wait until they should definitely see a heartbeat. I'm currently 4 weeks. I was thinking 7 or 8 weeks. What do you suggest?

Congrats on your pregnancy!!! I would wait for 7 to 8 weeks, your doctor's door is always open should you have any questions or concerns too.

Congrats on your pregnancy hun :cheer:

I phoned my doctor that day after I found out, I was 10dpo when i went and saw him :lol: Right away he booked my scan for me, booked me in with the midwife and sent me for my beta's doing. I couldnt have wished for better health care :smile:

At 7 or 8 weeks, you should definitely be able to see a heart beat. I was able o see he heartbeat at my first ultrasound, which was 6 weeks 2 days. Good luck!

I went in for an early U/S at 6w3d and wasn't able to see anything clearly, but went back at 7w3d and saw a beautiful bean with a wonderful hb!!

Good luck Sacha!

7 or 8 weeks you will definitely see a heartbeat, so that time sounds good!!!

Congrats! If you want to see a h/b best to wait until 7 or 8 weeks (although that can seem like a lifetime) I hope you have a great pg!

Thanks for the advice, ladies! I think I've decided to try and make my appt. the week of 10/27. That will put me sometime between 7w3d and 8w0d. Hopefully by scheduling it that far in advance I can get an appointment in the late afternoon so DH can go with me. I'm sure I will be a nervious wreck at that appt. Thanks again, you ladies are the best!

I think that's a great time to go Sacha. You should def see everything by then. I'm so excited for you!!

I agree with the girls I would wait until you are 7W, I saw mine at 6w5d, but I know it's different for everybody.
