1st Appt and CVS Scheduled

Hi there,

I had my first appointment yesterday with my doctor's practice. I'm now 9 weeks and 4 days. We discussed a repeat cesarean, which I'm all for because I want my tubes tied.

We also discussed the CVS testing and I set that up for September 1st. The physician's assistant was all for it and I've been leaning towards knowing and preparing earlier than waiting for an amnio. So that's done. I have to do the blood work, etc., and I won't get an ultrasound until the CVS. We didn't listen to the heartbeat either because I'm, er, a little round in the tummy and she didn't think she would hear anything. I was a little disappointed but I think I would have freaked out if I didn't hear anything!

Still not really feeling any symptoms except big, sensitive boobs, and some food aversions/cravings. Can't believe it!

OH! And we moved my delivery date up to 39 weeks which would be around March 15th. Gonna try for the 16th though--that whole "Ides of March" thing... ;-)

Hi, Victorria-


I had a CVS and was glad to have results so early in my pregnancy.

I am glad you opted for the CVS, I had to wait for an amnio due to insurance issues and I SO wished I had done the CVS earlier.

Yes, and I'm in London right now for work so it's going by even faster.

I dealt with jet lag many times while traveling for work but never while I was pregnant.
