Not sure what I thought of my first visit. I had a PAP done and lots of blood work. He also did an abdominal u/s with the dinosaur machine to check on babies. They looked like babies and were moving around. He said they had nice strong heart beats, but I am not sure how he could tell since the machine didn't have measurements or a heart beat sound on there. So no measurements or heart beat. I was a little bummed. We went over all my risk factors and since I am 11 weeks he asked what genetic testing we wanted to do . I told him absolutely no on the Amnio. I thought the NT scan and the mateniti21 was the testing I would be willing to do . They are going to try to schedule me in for NT scan but aren't sure they can get me in before 13 weeks. So if not, I will have to settle for the blood work version of NT with no u/s. I hope they can get me in. He is also sending me to the Cardiologist for precaution because of the shortness of breath and constant heart palpitations I am having. He doesn't think anything is wrong and just wants to cover all the basis. They are also setting me up with the MFM, but not until 18 weeks. At that point I will have a u/s through them to check babies out and also give me genders.
So any of you that know me won't be surprised when you read the
following. I was not happy with my u/s today. I am calculated and need
to know certain things such as measurements of babies and the hb. About
30 minutes after I left my appointment I called my RE office. I started
off by asking how they liked the pie I sent
then asked if I could come in for an u/s next week. She told me that
they aren't legally allowed to see you after a certain point , but would
check. I have an appointment for u/s on Monday at 3:30 two days before
cut off at 12 weeks. Man I really love this office.
Here is u/s from today; Next appointment is Monday with my RE for one last u/s and then May 21st with OB.
