I'm pretty sure you're supposed to drink a heap of liquid before the scan aren't you? I see the midwife for the first appointment at 10 weeks and then again at 14 weeks. Then I see lance In October for my first appointment.
What's your due date? Our paths may cross at the mater in the future. Do you know if they have water birth options at the mater?
My due date is 10th March what about u?
I think there is water birth options not too sure?
Try to stay positive I am 7 weeks today can't go back to the doctor until Monday 4th! The wait is killing me
I'm due 27th feb based on my dates I tracked. It's going to be a killer summer!
You'll have to let me know how you go on the Monday. :-) I'm sure it will all go perfectly
Lance won't do your proper 12 week scan.... You will get referred for that. He did a scan every appointment for me
Had my 10 week appt with the midwife yesterday and it all went great. She was really lovely and took all the time we needed. She asked how I had been and I told her anxious as we hadn't had a scan yet and it didn't seem real so she said 'let's have a peek at baby' :-D
Soooo freaking cool man!!!! Hubby and I were both just silent. Baby Lambie was jumping around in there like a party was going on and then just chilled out so she could get some pics and the heartbeat. He's (I think he's a he so he's probably a she in reality lol) growing at perfect rate for my EDD and his heart rate was spot on. No Doppler as they don't like to do it before the NTS so will have to wait another two weeks for that. But it finally all feels real! And I'm letting myself get excited now the closer I get to the end of the first tri. There's a 31.5mm bean growing inside me lol sorry for the over excitement but we still haven't told a lot of people yet ImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1406926560.268117.jpg
Yes it was elective :-) that strange you are not seeing him until 20 weeks. I saw him after my 12 week scan
I may have my wires crossed and it may be him I'm seeing at 14 weeks as well. It's only a 15 min appt but I thought the midwife said I would be seeing her as I'm classed as low risk and you only see the ob for the morphology results. 😐 Soon find out I guess.
I'm unsure whether to go for an elective. I've always thought I'd prefer it as we love an hour out of mackay so it gives me assurance of exactly when bub would be due. But after reading some info on natural births I'm now undecided. Got a long time to decide I guess. Would you recommend an elective? Was your recovery long? Any complications? How long did they keep you in at the mater? Sorry for the inundation of questions @mrsboyts!
