I had my first u/s today and there was one sweet looking little penguin blob with a flickering little heart. <3 So amazing to think that in only 9 months that's going to be our new baby. Blows me away even after two kids. Any way, was a great day :)

Congratulations!!!

I'm jealous you've seen your bean already. My first appt. with my doc is Monday, and then she will make a referral for an u/s, but who knows how long it will be before I get my scan? Canada: Free universal healthcare, yes, but timeliness... not so much! :)

Amanda, we're military, so it's kind of a similar situation. We have "free" healthcare (we do pay for it, but it's automatically docked from pay, so we never see it), and are allotted 16 prenatal visits. So I'm waiting until Jan 5th for my first appt. HURRY UP. I can not wait. I refuse to think about it.

Nikki, that's crazy that you only get 16 visits. I would use that up in one month next week will be my 4th apt this pg already Five if you could my u/s lol. Do you have to pay for any extra's totally out of pocket?
