First OB appointment

Today, I am 5 weeks, 6 days. We had our first OB appointment this afternoon.

Using the low tech portable ultrasound machine, we saw 1 baby measuring 6 weeks 3 days!  I keep telling my husband that the baby is on the left side. From today’s scan, it looks like my hunch was right!

My initial reaction was that I thought the baby was measuring behind. I had it in my head that he said 5 weeks, 3 days. As I stared at the screen, it finally clicked that the baby was measuring AHEAD! *whew* Such a relief!

In our shocked state, my husband and I forgot to ask for a print out or take our own photos.

We discussed the fact that we put 2 embryos in and the potential for twins. My OB said it could be too early to know using the machine he used. He would recommend the trans-vaginal ultrasound to get a closer look at my actual ultrasound appointment.

As for my ultrasound, I am very much NOT impressed with our local ultrasound clinic. My fertility clinic called them on Monday to arrange my appointment and they never got a call back. This afternoon, I called the ultrasound clinic myself and asked whether I had an appointment or not. They claim to have no record of my clinic calling. This isn’t the first mistake they have made. 😦

Anyway, my lovely nurse called them back and got me in for March 4th. I will be 7 weeks, 6 days then. I wish we could have gone a bit earlier, but I know we will get a better view then.

I also have my next OB appointment scheduled for March 12 at 9 weeks.

Appointments galore! This whole pregnancy thing is totally getting real! 🙂

  1. I thought you were 6 weeks today? Did they do an abdominal ultrasound? I’m glad that it was good news and I’ll be curious to know if they missed one in there or not. I’m happy the baby is measuring ahead, that wonderful news!


    • No I had my days off by a day. I realized that when the clinic dated me. Just abdominal using a portable machine like they used when we were in the ER. I know that one didn’t pick up the ectopic, so who knows. At least we know we will know got sure since I’ll be almost 8 weeks at the next one?

  2. Excellent news! Mine keeps measuring ahead too, at 7w2d I think I was at 7w4d I think and today at 12w, I was 12w4d. I’m excited for your next ultrasound where you can actually see more! (Although still kinda looks like a little sea creature lol).


  3. Yay!!! I’m so happy to hear that your embryo(s) implanted where they should, and that they are measuring AHEAD!! That must be so relieving to hear. It must also feel really good to be able to book pregnancy appointments now! I’m so happy and excited for you two!
