12/3 was my first appointment. My doctor did an ultrasound for fun just for DS to see his baby brother or sister. I my doctor was really concerned with my overall appearance and weight loss from HG and ordered me back in 2 weeks. 

12/17 was my second appointment where I heard baby's heartbeat, 160bpm. I had only lost 2 more pounds and my appearance was healthier so she bumped me back to 4 week appointments. Unless something bad happens I will see her on 1/22 now when I will be 16 weeks so I'm hoping to find out gender early but we will see.

12/26 was my first trimester scan, better safe than sorry. Everything measured out great and heartbeat was 158bpm. I should be getting blood results back this week. I didn't see any dangles to guess what baby is based off Ngle of the dangle.

This week I have to get all my blood work done and my glucose testing since I had GD with DS so say a prayer I beat the odds and don't have GD again!!

Sounds like other than being really sick everything is going really well with baby =)  That is awesome news!  I got my bloodwork all done on 12/26 but haven't had my 1st trimester screen yet.   Can't waif for those reassurances.
