I got my pre-pregnancy consultation last month when my ob checked my rubella, tetanus etc status. Since that visit, i got my tetanus booster, hep b booster and flu shot done. Been on pre-natals since June and got the green light from Ob to start trying and here i am 2 cycles later. Can’t believe it! Bees, are there any foods or things to avoid at this stage?

Does anyone know what to expect at a first trip to the OB? Is it an ultra sound or an exam as well? Do they do bloodwork?

Hey everyone.. I’m so excited to join you ladies! I don’t have my first appointment until 12/9 but I didn’t want to wait that long to join you over here. =)
Due Date: July 16 according to LMP, but I’m thinking a little later based on when I think I O’d. We’ll see what the doc says.
Cycles Trying: Just our first
Any Symptoms yet? Last week I had a bunch of cramping, mostly Sunday-Tuesday then it went away for the most part. Still a bit of it here or there. A little bit of light headedness & boobs are a little sore. Yesterday and today I had horrible headaches. Yesterday’s lasted from when I woke up until I went to bed.
Most excited for: I don’t even know… everything!
Most nervous about: Any complications.
What you’ll miss most about being pregnant: Beer. DH & I have a tradition where we go to a local bar every 1st of the month and collect the glasses from their “Glass of the Month” beer. We’ve been doing it for 4 or 5 years. Looks like he’ll be drinking two every month for awhile. =)
Hoping for boy or girl? Before I got the BFP, I would’ve said boy right away. I have 3 older brothers and loved having big brothers. Now I’m kind of feeling girl. I’ll be ecstatic either way.
Possible names: Malcom Keith or Simon Keith for a boy. Summer Leigh or April Leigh for a girl. (Keith is DH’s middle name & Leigh is mine)
Non-Baby related…what’s your occupation and you’re spouses? I’m an attorney, working in a corporation’s tax department. DH is an accountant.
For Fun- share your BFP: First one, from Saturday 11/16

I’m very nervous to be posting on here but after obsessive Google searches ending in tears and worries, I’ve decided I need you Bees a lot! I took some time away from the Bees, I mostly posted on the 6 month + boards, so here goes nothing!….
Due Date: July 22ish
Cycles Trying: 12 months (15 or more cycles….) We had IUI and I took Clomid (CD2-5) + trigger shot + progesterone (suppositries). I am still taking the progesterone and will be doing so until 10 weeks or so. I honestly don’t want to stop taking it because I’ve convinced myself it is what is keeping this bean alive!
Any Symptoms yet? VERY sore back and hips, queasy, fatigue and crazy emotional mood swings. Oh, and the acne. Oh the acne!!!
Most excited for: Starting a family with my DH, seeing my baby for the first time and teling our parents!
Most nervous about: WELL. On friday night (4weeks, 3 days) I had some spotting that was dark brown, then light brown, then light pink. It stopped by Saturday morning but I went to the ER on Friday and had an ultrasound (too early to make any determinations, they saw it was not an etopic pregnancy) and I had more blood work done today. I’m very nervous about having a miscarriage and the cramps are very worrisome for me, 🙁
What you’ll miss most about being pregnant Eating feta cheese – seriously, it’s a food group for me….
Hoping for boy or girl? No preference!
For Fun- share your BFP: Embarassing – I only took one, a few days ago and I tossed it. Instead of POAS like crazy, I just get blood work done like crazy 🙂 I have had three draws (17, 114, 295) and another today….

I had my first appointment early because I saw light spotting. My next appointment is at 10 weeks on Dec. 10
I got a flu shot in Sept. at my primary care doc at his urging. I figured it couldn’t hurt. I’m around a lots of kids and their parents so lots of germs.
Welcome and congrats!

Snap, we have the same EDD (well, at this stage anyway!) Congratulations on your pregnancy! Your symptoms sound identical to mine. I’ve been extremely light headed yesterday and today which has made teaching my class very interesting. Lots of sitting down on the mat!

Each office may be different. My place does a confirmation first, or bring something that says you’ve taken another pregnancy test and it’s confirmed. Generally 7-8 weeks is the first one where they’ll do an u/s and obstetric blood work, which doesn’t include hCG levels. If you have spotting before then they’ll do an earlier u/s. I was due for a Pap smear so that was done also.
Congrats! I hope everything works out. FX for you and little bean.
I’m so sorry. ((Hugs))

I got my flu shot today….I was nervous at first and wanted to wait until I was further along (I’m not even 5 weeks) but after reading about it I decided that sooner was better than later! The flu can be very serious when you’re pregnant because you can run a fever!
The last time I saw my doctor, when we were still TTC, she told me they wouldn’t see me until I was 8 weeks…..at least I think that’s what she said- I kinda can’t remember! I guess that’s ok with me, though, because I’d like to really see something on the U/S, if they’ll give me one then!
Congrats to you! I have had a lot of cramping (no blood, just bad cramps off and on, and they’re bad enough that sometimes I have to pace around and make a face). It makes me worried but I did some googling (I know, I know) and it sounds pretty normal….I hope so, anyways! Just wanted to let you know you’re not the only one with cramps, and if you know it’s not ectopic you should try not to worry!
