First Ultrasound Appt

I had my first u/s appt on Thursday. We have a tentative due date of somewhere between June 15-18. According to my lmp I would have been 9w3days on Thursday, but I have really long cycles (like 40+) days. So LO was measureing around 7w3d, but we saw a really strong, fast heartbeat Smile I'm going back in 2 weeks for another dating u/s just to firm up a due date and make sure LO is growing on track. I'm kinda disappointed I'm not a little further along as morning sickness has set in with a vengance (this is earlier and worse than I had it with DD). I'm hoping that since it started earlier maybe it will end earlier (*hope*hope*)? Oh well, I'm excited to get to see the little one again!

Hang in there.  My ms started before I knew I was pregnant.  It has been 24/7 since but I do have days that I don't have it at all.  I had it really bad with DD but I actually wasn't able to keep much down for the first 16 weeks.  This round I just feel sick with a little getting sick.  The fatigue and the inability to concentrate is what's killing me with this one.

Congrats on a good 1st ultrasound!  KUP how the next appointment goes.

(P.S.  sorry if this posts multiple times... this website is wonky since they are making changes)

With DD they kept changing the due date even though I had used a trigger shot and was being monitored by the RE so we knew when I ovulated. Nice strong heartbeat is great news. Hear you on the ms. Mine has been so bad that I had to get a prescription for Zofran. I am better for the most part. Still throw up some just not as bad as before. Hope it it's by 12 weeks like it did with DD. Hope yours gives you a break.
