I just found out I am pregnant on Thursday (yay! Just in time for Mother's Day!) and I have an appointment on Monday with my NP, just to confirm my 3 tests and such. I don't know yet if what to do for my prenatal care (as I don't know if she does it....but I am so comfortable with her n such). Although I did find out that my local hospital built a Birth Center like 30 years ago and is all about as natural as possible, so that was really exciting!

I cannot wait to get to the point that we can see our babies heartbeat!

I have my first appointment with my midwife this Thursday! I'm looking forward to seeing what will happen and getting some reassurance, hopefully, that all is well.

I made my OB appt for Thursday--I see the NP for the first visit and they usually do an ultrasound. I have been feeling so bloated and have so much pressure in my lower abdomen, that I am a little worried, TBH. I've had surgery to repair a fallopian tube in the past, so my chances for an ectopic pg are a little higher than normal. I'm hopeful that all will go well, though. By LMP date I will be 6 weeks, but actual date will either be a little earlier or later.

I saw the heartbeat this morning! I'm measuring 6 weeks (what I thought) and am due 1/6/09. Of course, now I have gas pains from an abundance of blueberries, so I'm having m/c fears, even though I know that's not it.

I think I'm going to wait unil more towards the end of June for my first appointment. I already talked to my midwife and she's psyched for us. They don't typically see patients until they are through the first trimester since there really isn't anything that can be done other then the parent interviews. My midwife group is about an hour and 15 minutes away so we typically limit our visits!!!

Ruth that is so awesome!!! I hope they do an ultrasound when I go on the 20th... I am "due" 1/5/09 so if you saw your heartbeat now, I should be able to see mine then! I have no idea when my first u/s is though.

Well I must win the award for the latest 1st appt. I won't see my midwife until 6/10. She wants you at least 8weeks so they can do an ultrasound and then she meets with you. We leave for vacation on my 8th week so I cant be seen until 6/10.

I had my first OB appt today - she put me on m/c protocol. I am meeting with my midwife on the 20th but won't officially switch to her until 20 weeks.

I had an appointment last Thursday with my RE for an ultrasound. At 5w5d, we saw a heartbeat. I go back to the RE May 28 for one last ultrasound to make sure everything is okay. We are then discharged from care of the RE.

We interviewed the homebirth midwife last Wednesday and hired her. Our first prenatal is June 11....I will be 10w4d. We are hoping to hear the heartbeat on the doppler at that time.

I called my OB's office today. They don't see patients before 10-12 weeks, but because of my previous history of twins, they are going to see me at 8 weeks. I will have an u/s to rule out a second twin pregnancy and officially find an EDD. My guess is around the 18th of January, but it could be a little sooner. My b-day is the 14th, and we have at least 6 other birthdays in our family that month. Very exciting. Now I have to wait 4 whole weeks to tell my family.

I just called my nurse practitioner (the one I saw for all of my pregnancy with DS) and set up an appt. for mid-June. I have to go in tomorrow for a blood test for their records, then I can set up my appt. for the dating u/s.

Friday, June 13th. They say I'll be 8 weeks. I'm not sure about that, but I'm willing to go with it.
