Had my 1st appt. yesterday. I was soo nervous about NOT getting an u/s. Luckily, after they took my history and learned of my losses, I was rushed for an u/s. I was really really nervous, and it didnt help that ds was with me. But sure enough, there was the baby, and I got to hear the heartbeat. I should be 7w5d yesterday, but they said I was measuring 8w1d. No problem here!! the faster I get to the 2nd tri, the happier I am LOL.

The tech was really nice, asked if ds knew already and I said no. So she kept it hush hush. Once I heard the heartbeat though, I asked ds if he knew what we were looking at. He had already asked the tech some questions (like I said she was a sweetie) so he understood we were looking at my belly right under where she had the u/s thing. So he answered "we're looking inside your belly" like I was a moron or something haha. When I told him there was a baby in there he got so very very excited. He even got on the phone with dh after we left and said he saw the baby and heard the heartbeat, and that the 2 of them better start building a crib. What a cutie!! I am so glad he was there, I know he felt special being able to see the baby and be part of it. Thats one reason why I chose the hospital I did, because they offer family birthing rooms, and classes for ds before hand.

Oh, Meaghan, I'm so happy for you! How terrific that your DS got to see the baby and hear it's heartbeat- and what a way for him to find out about the pregnancy. I'm crying for you- DH is going to walk in and ask me again why I do this to myself. But this time it's happy tears!

Please keep coming back to see us on TTCAM. Hopefully a lot of us will be joining you here soon!

Hey girl! I'm glad to hear that your appt. went well and that you got an u/s. Your appt. sound exactly like my first appt. I didn't think I was going to get an u/s but I did and I measured ahead as well. I am so freaking happy for you : )

Thanks Cher! I had gestational diabetes with ds. So the nutritionist at the ob's office makes anyone with a history automatically take the 3hr glucose test. They figure the one hour test usually leads to a 3hr test in patients with a history, so that's where they start. Blech!
