    I just found out I am pregnant with our first child. He always knows, we are both very excited. But since this is our first child, I have no idea what to expect the very first appointment.

    I know that I will call the doctor up maybe in a week or two, since it's Thanksgiving and everything, and get a blood test done for sure.

    After that appointment, if the blood test comes up positive, which I am sure it will. What would I do at the next appointment, would they give me an ultrasound or do they wait until a certain amount of time. My periods are very irregular, but this time I used opk's and got a positive on the 8th of November. So I used that instead of the last period.

    If anyone could help me that would be great!

    Hi I'm 3 weeks 6 days and waiting to see the doctor on Monday. My ICs are still pale though I'm not due my period till sunday. Both my clearblue digitals were positive though. I think I'm going to buy two more digis for the next two days to keep me from freaking out, I'm so on edge - it doesn't feel real :wacko:

    Yeah my digital one said "not pregnant" but I did drink a lot of water! And it was in the afternoon. I took another home pregnancy test, and I it came up positive. So I have two positives and 1 negative. Like I said, this is my first...and I don't know much about digital tests.

    Test in the morning with your 1st urine gives the most accurate result :)

    Well my digital one says pregnant. So I am pretty sure I am pregnant. All the cramping and everything speaks the same :)

    When i went in, because i hadn't had my period in a few months, he did an ultrasound right away. What a mistake that was! It caused so much stress on us due to it being so early in the pregnancy. They couldn't find anything. Once the doctor did blood work and confirmed i was pregnant, i had another ultrasound to see how far i was. By that point, i was 6 weeks. It is very exciting. All doctors are different. Wishing you the best of luck and a healthy pregnancy
