Well, it seems like our thread is ghost paging at 6 pages because I can’t even see the last thing I posted. Here’s a continuation.
I had my first appointment yesterday and it went… so well!!!! Everything looked great, I was measuring exactly as I should be. We saw the heartbeat!!! I teared up. It was strong at 162 and we even got a picture to take home. We’re probably going to tell our immediate family this weekend, so surreal. I’m so relieved that everything is going smoothly, and I’m praying for the same for all the other little ones on this thread.
Here’s the first picture of our little one:)

What are you reading/google searching/preparing for?
The Mayo Clinic Guide to a Healthy Pregnancy, researching nutrition/prenatal vitamins (I want to make sure the one I grabbed is good enough), Babyzone.com’s week by week information, and I’m looking for other books I need.

Yay for all the new BFPs!! Congrats! Sorry I’ve been MIA but not much has been happening until today. We went for our first appointment today and got to see our little peanut on ultrasound!! It was so great to see the heartbeat, rate was 176. It made me feel so much better to see the heart just flicking away. They measured me a little further along than I thought – 8w4d. New due date is September 2 – which is Darling Husband and I’s first anniversary 🙂 Seems a lot more real now. Other-wise doing well. Still super nauseous in the afternoon and have thrown up the past few mornings. Doc says its due to low blood sugar and to eat smaller meals with less carbs more protien (lasts longer) so I guess I will try that. Starting to get food aversions, but only if I cook it 🙂 like if Darling Husband makes chicken its fine but if I see it raw first I can’t eat it. The worst is bacon, which makes me sad cause I LOVE bacon. Oh well.
@blayne7 – each practice is different but first appointment is usually around 8 weeks 🙂

Here are my ultrasounds from 7 weeks and 2 days (I am now 8 weeks and 5 days). went to my first OB appt yesterday and she said that as soon as you hear a heartbeat and know you have a good embryo you are pretty set for a sticky baby. she also said she saw some tiny fibroids about 1 cm in size and did not seem concerned and that the baby was measuring at 6 weeks and 4 days when i went in at 7 weeks and 2 days but that is fine and normal and my due date remains the same. phew! The baby is at the top. the yokl sack at the bottom.

Hello everyone! I feel like I haven’t been on here for a few days. We had a scare the other day:
But in the end everything has turned out fine! The good out of all of this is the doctor ordered an ultrasound and after driving through the dark and in the rain we had our first untrasound and the for the first time we got to see the baby! Seeing the heart beat for the first time (167!) and getting the reassurance from the doctor that the untrasound and the babys growth looks really good put me at such ease. Also I’m a bit farther along then I thought! As of today I am 9 weeks 1 day with a new due date of August 30th (but I’m going to stay on this board because who ever knows!)
I was wondering, is everyone telling parents and family? How are you planning on sharing the news? This weekend DH’s family and my family are getting together for my birthday. I got these cute kid picture books entitled “Grandpa and Me” and “Grandma and Me” with the ultrasound pics inside and “Baby C***” on the name line. We’re excited and nervous to share the news!
