Question for BTDT moms
Wed, 01-16-2013 - 7:36pm

We are scheduled for our first trimester ultrasound next week.  Just curious how you ladies feel about taking older kids to these appointments.  We haven't told anyone our news yet including DS who is 3.  I thought it might be neat for him to go and get to see and hear the baby to help explain it all to him.  Of course if we take him there would be no secret keeping after that.  :)

Well, I'd skip this one since that'll likely be a transvaginal ultrasound;-) I could see taking a kid to a belly ultrasound. We just showed ours pictures later! haha

I agree with the previous poster. First one is usually transvaginal, perhaps when you are further along.

Agreed. I think I'd skip this one and maybe bring him to the **BIG** ultrasound when/if you find out baby's sex.

Everyone knows about this baby already.  I've had one ultrasound, and went alone.  The only one I'm planning on taking my DD's to is the big gender one.  I didn't want to take them to the first in case there was something wrong.
