First ultrasound and appt

I had my first appointment today. It went great. Baby measured 1.2cm, which is 7w3d. I am 7w1d by lmp and 7w2d based on when I knew I ovulated. I think the Dr is going to stick with edd based on lmp, which will be 11/14. We saw the flicker of the heartbeat. She wasn't able to get a count for it, but it looked fine.

I'm such a pro at the u/s, she didn't even have to point things out for me, I was announcing what we were seeing.

Due to my age and having had some high blood pressure during my pg with Dd, she is making me do a 24 hr urine collection, which doesn't sound fun. I'm going to start back on my lovenox injections, which I did throughout my pgs with both of my kids. My mfm that I used for both kids before has moved, so I have to get a new mfm now :(

Next appt and u/s on 4/10 at 9w.

I had my first appt today and dating u/s. I'm due Nov 11. Had my b/w done. Glad to get it all done in one day. It was so exciting to see the heart beat. :). My first u/s with my son wasn't until 12 weeks so this was nice to not have to wait so long! hope everyone is doing well!

Sounds like you had a great appointment! I hope the next 12 days do by fast for you!

I am wondering what does mfm stand for?

Maternal Fetal Medicine - they usually do extra screenings (level 2 u/s, NT scan) and monitor high risk patients.
