So Im about ten weeks into my first pregnancy and was wondering when you get your first ultrasound and first pic? I have my second Doctor appointment monday. The first one I had was just my history and blood work. I believe this one will consist of an exam and ultrasound right?

It all depends on your doctor. The first thing they try to do is listen for the heartbeat and using a dopler is far less expensive. my doc couldn't detect the hb at around 11 weeks, so we got a photo of the lil gummy bear then, but others have said that their docs don't do that many ultrasounds and it wasn't until 20 weeks or more than they got their first.


Between the genetic testing and the NT test, I've had 5 total, but three were NOT done by my doc, they were the specialty testing and I would have had 3 at docs had I not done the genetic stuff at the high-risk doc.


It won't hurt to ask, that'll give your doc an opportunity to explain what normally happens at each appointment and hopefully they'll do that anyway, but not all do. it's old-hat to them, but us FTMs are TOTALLY clueless!!! LOL

Thanks for the reply! My Fiancee is working two jobs at the moment so It is impossible for him to make it to my appointment :( But in about in hour from now Ill be seeing my 1st baby for the first time! I had to internal ones at 6 and 7 weeks but that was at the ER and they didnt show me them. Thankfully my mother is going with me and Im sure its gonna be emotional. I cant wait!!

I had my first U/S at 9 weeks to date my pregnancy. I'm also electing to have genetic screening done, so I'm getting a second U/S at 11 weeks. I'm assuming I'll get a third U/S at 20 weeks, but I haven't actually inquired about that.

I hope you get to see your little baby's picture soon!!! :-)

TTC since Thanksgiving 2007... Got my BFP in June 2008!!!
