Re: When is everyone's first appointment?
I have my first appt scheduled for Thursday (Dec 13) at 6 weeks+. It will not include an ultrasound, as they are not standard here. It is not routine to have an ultrasound until 20 weeks. With DS, my doctor sent me for an early ultrasound (11 weeks) just to ease my mind after a previous miscarriage, but I am unlikely to get special treatment like that again and I refuse to ask for it, even though it is killing me not to know whether things are progressing normally. I'm wondering what the doctor will be able to tell me on Thursday, but I'm hopeful he will say everything is normal based on where I am in the pregnancy.
