Any ladies able to enlighten me on what happens on your first doctor’s appt after finding out you’re pregnant? Baby #1 for us and I’m sort of clueless- first of our friends to be pregnant too. 

I called my fam doc and my appt is this upcoming Thursday. Do they tell me my hcg levels immediately? Can I get a dating ultrasound or is that only if you don’t know the date of your LMP?

amrx2015 :  US bee. When I was pregnant with my son my OB didn’t really do much at the first appointment, but she had me go get bloodwork (like 6 vials of bloodwork). She had me go to an ultrasound tech the following week. I was 7 weeks at my first appt and 9 weeks for the first ultrasound.

ROLL CALL:

How far along are you? Got my BFP yesterday! at 12dpo.  So 4 weeks?

What’s your estimated due date: August 12!

How many cycles trying? this was our 11th month, 9th cycle

When did you get your BFP? Yesterday!!

Post a picture of your first BFP if you want! 

 

Who have you told? just my hubby and my best friend

When do you plan on telling more people? after our first doctor appt, we will tell our parents for sure.  Then probably new years we will tell our closest friends.

How did you tell your partner? I’ve been having a baby LSU (our football team) onesie and the booy “Dude, You’re Gonna be a Dad.” So I hid those two things, along with the test, under the covers.  When he walked in I threw the covers back.  He just kept looking at the stuff then at me and back and forth and finally said “really?!” with a huge grin on his face!!

Any symptoms yet? omg, yes. nauseaus almost all the time, esp if I eat something big. cramps. super gaseous.

What are you most excited about/for? right now, I’m super excited to tell our family and friends.  And decorating the room. And finding out the gender. And feeling it kick. And holding it. Soooo….everything?! lol

When is your first appt? I am waiting for my doctor to call me back.  I already had an appt scheduled with her on the 13th, so I’m hoping she will just let me keep that appt.

For fun – Will you be finding out the gender or being team green? Definately be finding out!! My anxiety is way too much to not find out!!

I am not going to roll call just yet. I am really shocked and still processing. I got four clear positives (3 yesterday, one today, including a digital that said 3+ weeks). I almost didn’t test, as it seemed SO improbable. I had a stark as can be negative two weeks ago. I have PCOS (irregular-to-non-existent periods, acne, but am low-to-normal weight) and only stopped the pill in late October. It is really hard to be excited, it just does not feel real, we have talked a lot about probably needing fertility treatment to get pregnant. BUT, I want to enjoy right now, regardless of what ultimately happens. The tests mention that an ovarian cyst could cause a false positive, and of course that made me SUPER worried and pessimistic, but I am taking the fact that I had a clear negative two weeks ago as a positive sign. It is impossible to find good quality , evidence-based pregnancy information on the Internet so I am resisting torturing and misinforming myself.
