So I'm going tommrow for my very first ultrasound.

I'm only at 9 weeks so will it be a viginal one or the normal? How long do they take?

Do doctors charge you for the little photos? o.o

The u/s souldn't take very long as there is not much to see at this point.

I had my first U/S this morning when I went to the ER. I had hoped not to have to do the transvaginal but with the other nothing could be seen so we did. I was in the U/S about 15-30 mins but she was having to check to make sure that nothing bad was going on to cause my pain. When she was showing me my baby on the U/S she asked me which of the pictures she took I wanted. I came home with ONE picture but it was about the best picture I could have asked for of my baby.

Shockingly it didn't take long at all we did however get there almost an hour early. My boyfriend had just gotten off a 24 and I was worried he'd fall asleep and miss it.

I'm actualy at 11 weeks! Once I can get my hands on a scanner I'm going to try and scan the photos they gave me, even if he kept hiding and trying to turn away.

I look forward to seeing the pics and I am glad that your SO could be there even if he was tired. Now it is time to relax and sleep.
