The first official appointment

We had the first appointment today and it went great. We are officially measuring at 5 weeks and 5 days. Which puts me at a due date of March 21st according to my doctor's circle of fun. This is also what I guessed due to my chart- which she -surprise surprise- actually looked at and agreed with!

The appointment was fast. She did the vaginal ultrasound said everything looked great and that I was right on target and told me to come back in two weeks. No heartbeat yet but when I asked her if that was OK she looked at me like I was crazy and told me it was too early:D She also told me to stop going on the internet because I was scaring myself and I shouldn't worry. Hubby definitely agreed with this advice!

In Germany people tend to be less interested in getting the hard facts on medical issues, their doctors tend to just tell them you're sick- take this. So I wasn't surprised that she didn't want to tell me much more then the basics of there being a sac and a yolk sac and it being on target. However it was comforting for me to see it on the monitor.

I have a picture which I will upload tomorrow. I'm starting to real enjoy being pregnant. Even though it is still so early and a million and one things could go wrong, and I feel sick to my stomach before, after and sometimes while eating, I am determined to enjoy this from beginning to end.


  1. That's wonderful! I am so glad that everything looks great!

  2. Yes -- enjoy every minute of it as much as you can! I understand though, the 1T is hard. You'll get through it!

  3. We are TO THE DAY 2 weeks apart!!! YAY!

    So glad it went well, and that is awesome you had an ultrasound. Can't wait to see that and belly pics :)
