Hi Lauren, yes, it went great! We have a heartbeat!!!! It measured 129, which is great! Doc said the yolk sac was normal size and baby measured 6w4d and I'm 6w5d which he said was fine. Eeek!! We go back again in 2 weeks. Due date is April 1, 2018 :D

How's everyone doing?

That's great! Can't wait to hear how the next scan goes.

I'm doing pretty well. Finally getting around to figuring out what I need for the little man - if he's like his sister he will be here in 4 weeks, although I'd like to make it to 38 weeks if possible.

How is eoe?

Lauren - Ahhh so close!! The little man will be here before we know it!

Hi everyone! I hope you all are doing well.

We had our first OB appt this morning and got to see our little nugget again, heart rate was 174 and measured 8w3d (I am 8w2d today). So far everything seems to be going great! I go back in 4 weeks.

Love this! I adore the little 8 week pictures too - I think they look like tiny gummy bears.

Haha! It does look like a gummy bear :) I'm doing great, no real nausea just every so often and it's not bad when it does kick in, so no complaints here. I didn't really get any morning sickness with my son either, so hopefully this one is as easy as he was. I have to do the one hour glucose test at my next visit in 4 weeks so we'll see how that goes. Also, the OB mentioned that since I'm high risk (age) that they will be keeping a closer eye on me lol.

I'm high risk due to age too. All it meant was an early glucose test, two extra ultrasounds at the MFM, and the chromosome screening blood test at 12 weeks. Other than the early 1-hour glucose I welcomed all of the extra attention!

I'm happy to hear you are feeling well!

Yes, even though he said they would be watching me "more closely", it didn't really seem like it lol. Just the earlier 1 hour glucose, and he said I'll be seen every 4 weeks up until I think he said 28 weeks (?) and then every 2 weeks. Sounds pretty standard to me.
