7/27 for "confirmation u/s" at the RE office and then I'll start looking for a mw to take us through the preg instead of the docs to help get us to the preg.

Then we've got the anatomy U/S scheduled for 10/8.

Tomorrow 7/24..I have a "pre-natal" intake with a midwife. I think it going to be more like an "interview" just to talk to her and see if I want to use her.

On Aug 3, I have the same thing wtih a different midwife who is part of a practice.

I don't think I am going to have an u/s done early, unless it seems necessary for some reason. I would love the reassurance of seeing a hb...but I figure in a few weeks they should be able to hear it by doppler anyway, and if someone is wrong, they can't do anything about it this early anyway.

My first MW appointment is Sept. 5th. I can't wait!

Is it normal for a MW or doc to wait until the 10th to 12th week of pregnancy to schedule your first visit?

Jenn (30) wife to DH (42) and Mama to DS (2). Looking forward to our with #2 due Nov. 2 2010.

Jenn - my first appointment is at 10 weeks. I think a "normal" time frame is anywhere between 8 and 12 weeks.

I think it's easy to get used to hearing the stories of people who have had problems (either with the pg or getting pg) who visit the doctor at 4 weeks pg, etc, and we accept that as the norm. It is frustrating to have to wait so long (or at least it seems so long), but I've just been trying to tell myself it's good that I don't have to be seen early.

Look at all those August appointments - how exciting!

Jill, if it wouldn't be too much extra work for you, would you mind putting down how far along we will be at each appointment (of course, that means we need to tell you!)

It just might be helpful to find someone who is having our "next" appointment and ask them what to expect, if they had a sonogram, what did they see, etc.

I'll be 10 weeks at my appointment.

Have I told you how awesome this thread is? I'm getting excited seeing that there are only three other appointments scheduled before mine!

Haha sorry jillybeans
I posted elsewhere about our u/s i guess i forgot to put it here too!

We had our first ultrasound and its a......

SPECK

lol. Well it is. And the other day Kim was gettng so excited about 'seeing the baby' i had to point out that all she would see is a speck. Hence the baby is hereforth called Speck. Or Speckle. I call it Speckle. Kim told Speckle off the other night for making me sick
Anyway, the ultrasound tech told us that its measuring at 5 weeks 3 days which is spot on with my calculations so Speckle is officially due the 19th March. Go Me

We will have another one in about a week and a half to confirm the heartbeat
