We went in to see the fertility specialist today for our first appointment. They did the ultra sound and found the yoke sack and could see the flicker of the heartbeat. And thankfully there is only one in there. Then he is sending me to get blookwork done to check somethings. But then that was it. No recommendations on what to do. No due date. No question and answer session. Nothing.... I'm a FTM and he didn't even ask if I was taking prenatals....which of course I have been for two years now....


So then I go back next week on Tuesday for another ultrasound and then he said there will probably be one more after that and then he'll release me to an OBGYN.

Hey Keri...With my son I was also seeing an RE and my first appointment went about the same as yours. He did bloodwork to check my hcg level since his office released you once you hit 1000 or 1500 (I cant recall which one it was) and he did one u/s to make sure the sac and heartbeat was there...and that was it. Since my beta was over 3000 when I had my bloodwork done, he released me the same day to my ob. Once I got in to see my regular doctor
