1. Your 1st (and maybe even your 2nd depending on your doctor and your circumstances) ultrasound will NOT be done via your belly. Picture this: Me and the husband are at the doctor's office for our 1st appointment - we're excited (and a little nervous) to say the least. I am on the table with a paper gown covering the lower half of my body (so maybe I should have expected it, but I didn't - I thought this was just for the later portion of the appointment that's a lot like an annual exam - I was wrong). The ultrasound tech comes in and I lift up my shirt totally ready for the squirt of super cold clear jelly. Instead, she picks up a wand (that if I'm being completely honest looks exactly like a penis) and proceeds to put a condom on it - yes, a condom (perhaps this is supposed to make me feel better about the situation - it doesn't).
