First OB Appointment

It went well. I didn't know what to expect. Not much happened today, not even an u/s. I got to pee in a cup, and have more blood work.  She did check my cervix and she said it looked great. So I was happy about that. I was so super sad that I didn't get to see anything today.  She did get a fetal doppler out and she found the heartbeat so it was nice being able to hear that at least. I think she was more excited about it than I was. It's so hard to get your hopes up, will that ever change? CCRM called me today while I was waiting for the ob to come in. I told them I need to get an ultrasound so I am scheduled tomorrow at a Simon Med place. Not my first choice but it is covered by insurance. My ob did mention my uterus is rather enlarged. I don't know how to interpret that. I wish I asked more questions I am not a very detailed person. Sometimes I just go with the flow a little too much. My next appointment is in 2 weeks.

Here are todays results for my labs.
Estradiol: 1150
Progesterone: 26.5

Both numbers continue to go up so I am going down in the meds. I start going down to 2 vivelle patches and 1 suppository on Jan. 17.


  1. Glad you heard that little ones heartbeat!!!

  2. Glad it went well! :( Bummer they didn't give you an u/s though :(

  3. Sounds like everything is right on track!

  4. Sounds like everything is going well...I can't wait to hear about your u/s!

  5. Good news about the heartbeat!! You'll find out about your uterus next time. Don't beat yourself up. Soon, you will be going in with a list of questions.
