aww congrats !!! Best of luck to you <3 although I am 9 weeks I also went to the emergency room about a week ago wasnt sure if i was pregnant just felt sick all the time... sure enough pregnant they did an ultrasound there i couldnt hear the heart beat but i got to see it ... Phone was dead though so couldn't snap a picture :( so anxious though :((((
So instead of spending $5 on a pregnancy test, you went to the ER and spent at least 100 times that much? You rock at finances.
Only people that need on in first trimester are those with a history of losses, infertility, or very long cycles. If you are fortunate enough to not fall into one of those categories, you have no reason to expect one prior to 20 weeks unless you opt into the NT scan which many insurance policies do not cover unless you have legit reason to do it. Most women do not- if you did, you would already know that you did. Some offices will do one early, but you should not expect one.
