In the past my first appointments have been totally uneventful--just a urine test and blood draw. This time I was able to have an ultrasound at the first appointment, complete with picture of the baby! So exciting! We could see the heartbeat and the baby, despite the early stages, actually looks recognizably like a baby with head and body and limbs. Really cool to see that for the first time. Well, so far so good. I have a number of screening tests coming up next month, so more blood draws!

Nice! Glad it went well, I was super excited about seeing our LO as well. It is amazing how good U/S have gotten. Blood draw for me was fortunately only one prick but 7 (SEVEN) frickin' vials- jeez, I felt like I was getting drained! :)
