Anybody not having an early ultrasound or any other appts until 12 weeks or later? - Page 2

post #21 of 26

I am out of the US for another few months, so I won't be going to the Dr. till we get back home.  We have emergency health care coverage here, but would have to pay out of pocket for any OB appointments.  This is our fourth child, so I know the routine pretty well by now and don't feel like paying to have a nurse take my weight and blood pressure.   

 

So, I will head to the OB in August -- around the 14th week.

Weird-- they actually wanted me to come in to confirm PG.  Apparently, some ins. companies now require this before the long 1st appt.

 

I am getting the early u/s.  I will be shocked if anything is wrong (I feel pretty awful) but I do want the dating. 

 

I also love my MW.  Even though I am dragging 3-4 kids along with me to see her, we have great conversations . . .we don't even talk about the PG!

My first appt (Friday) I will be 9w6d. Hoping I can hear a heartbeat through Doppler! I have to limit u/s to one per pregnancy because that's all my insurance will pay for, so I'm definitely saving it for later. Probably about 24 weeks or so. But I'm really anxious to hear the heartbeat. I know they say you show more and more quickly with each pregnancy, but I can't help thinking this might be twins if I'm showing so much already! When I was pregnant with my first, I wore maternity clothes from about 8 weeks, not because I needed to but because I was so excited LOL, but this time I HAD to wear them from about 6.5-7 weeks.

I never hear the HB early.  This is #5, and I am on the slim side.  WOW about having to wear clothes are 6-7 weeks!  Maybe twins, like you said!

Nope. Only one baby. I think I'm just carrying this one very much towards the front. We couldn't hear the heartbeat on Doppler, but the midwife practice does not charge for a dating ultrasound.

Very validating that the ultrasound came up with the exact same date I did :) Especially since our family practice doctor (I'm currently looking for another btw) told me I was crazy because "it's not possible to ovulate more than once a month", so I must not have really ovulated again and my dates must be off.
