So I found out that I was pregnant a little over 3 weeks ago. I think I am a little over 6 weeks now. When I called the OB/GYN the nurse said that the doctor does ultrasounds first and then sets up appointments after the ultrasound. She set the ultrasound up for February 12th and said that the doctor doesn't like to do them before 8 weeks but I will only be a day off so that shouldn't matter. What should I expect to happen? I keep hearing people say that we will be able to see the baby and hear the hearbeat. Is there anything else that will occur? Will we be able to see and hear our baby? This is our first and we have no idea what to expect at our 8 week ultrasound.
