When's your appt for? I have to wait till 8 weeks!! Three more weeks!

They will have you do a ton of paperwork. Pee in a cup. Maybe run labs. Then they will answer any questions. Do a pap smere and then possibly do a transvaginal ultrasound to check on everything and if your fr enough along it might show the flicker of a heartbeat. Write down any questions you have this is the perfect time to ask them.

Well I found out almost 2 weeks ago (super early since I was TTC and temping/testing really early). So this wait is insane!

Congrats!  Such an exciting time as newly pregnant first time Mom :smileyhappy:

You can probably call back and ask if they'll be doing an u/s. If so you'll definitely want your DH/SO with you.   

Make sure you know your husbands blood type.  Even though it was my first pregnancy, I still needed an injection called a Rhogam shot.

 I go in Oct. 9th. Based on my LMP, I'm due 31 May.  Based on conception I'm due 1 June.
