    Hey ladies! I go to the Dr this morning since I'm finally 8 weeks!!! :happydance: I know that my ob doesnt do u/s in her office, she orders them for the hospital so I'm curious as to what is actually gonna happen! But I'll let you all know when I get home how it went!!

    You'll be fine :) If its anything like in the Uk she'll just ask you a few questions let you know what you can and can't eat/do etc and book you in with a midwife and for a scan :) xxxx

    Everything went fine! Dr said that I could even be 9 weeks, but we'll go ahead and stick with 8 weeks and keep the due date the same. Said my cervix looked good (I'm still baffled by how that thing looks good on anyone! lol) and all was well, gave me a script for "good" prenatal vitamins and some iron, even though I've been on prenatals already, just the kind from wal-mart. She's not ordering a scan until 17 weeks unless something happens in the meantime, so I guess its a good thing that my momma works over at the hospital and is the boss of Radiology, lol I can't wait til 17 weeks to see that lil heartbeat!! So I'm going for a scan on the 23rd! hee hee This is the best Christmas present I could've ever dreamed of!!!

    Great news...
    Why is it that dr's dont look at the cervix in the UK? I've asked and asked and they say no..
    Its clearly routine in some places.
