I think I've mentioned that in November I was pretty sick. I had a kidney stone and what we think was a colon infection. I was at the ER twice in 2.5 weeks.

One of the tests they scheduled me for was a pelvic u/s. Because it's the Army, it takes forever to get some of the specialists' appointments. I'm feeling totally better now, but I kept the u/s appointment once I found out I was pg.

I don't believe in routine u/s, but since dh and I already agreed to get an u/s if I ever got pg again, due to my history, I can't help but be excited. I've only had one u/s, with ds1 at 12 weeks.

I know that they won't be able to see much, but I am hoping to see a heartbeat. I hope it's not too early. By ovulation date, I will be 5 weeks 6 days on Monday.

I figure that if I'm resigned to getting an u/s, I might as well enjoy it!

FUN!

My OB won't try an internal until after 6 weeks (I think too many women were freaking or something) so I have another 1.5 weeks. You're lucky!

With DS we opted not to have an u/s done, but around 20 weeks (I think?), I was measuring a little small so they did a fetal assessment. Have to admit, it was way cool.

I had one with DS1 around 5 wks 5 days and there was a heartbeat. But the OB told me not to worry if there wasn't. I hope its great!!! He looked like a little eyeball with a heartbeat if I remember correctly.

Oh, this all sounds so exciting. Like you, I have decided not to have any routine U/S so (unless it becomes necessary) I will have to enjoy it vicariously! Tell all!

Oh, good! Extra permission to enjoy it!

I hope I can come home with a picture, but that may be asking too much, since they aren't expecting it to be an OB appointment. I think I may secret my camera in my purse, jic.

I'm one that cannot not find out the sex, so I've had U/S with both my previous pregnancies, plus later ones, the first time for GD and the second time for postdates.

I've thoroughly enjoyed all my u/s and will have another this time to find out the sex! Kind of hoping for a boy this time, but also nervous about rocking the boat, since we've done the girl thing twice already.
