Hey ladies! Ultrasound was perfect. Baby measured exactly the way I had calculated it would! I guess I know my body pretty well and knew when I got pregnant! LOL. Had a strong heartbeat of 170bpm )
oh wow, I hope everything goes well for you! Keep us posted and updated!
That is wonderful news! I can completely relate with the stress of not knowing.
When I first found out I was pregnant I scheduled an appointment at about 7 weeks. The doctor was the recommendation of a friend but when I got there, he really didn't ask any questions or talk much at all. He did the ulstrasound (which seems really early compared to when I was pregnant with my now 21 yo & 13 yo) but he said he couldn't see a baby yet just the baby's house which measured 5w3d and to come back in two weeks. In the meantime I received referrals in the mail to 4 different clinics (I'm sure one was genetic testing but no clue about the others). When I went back, I asked the nurse about it, she said the dr would talk to me. When he came in, again, all he said was "how is everything?" I said fine, just a little sleepy. Then he did another ultrasound. Said he saw the fetal pole and yolk sac this time, but the "home" measured 6w1d now (by my calculations should have been 8w) and couldn't see a heartbeat. He said come back in a week, as he was walking out I asked if I should be worred and he said "in my opinion, 50/50". My heart sank. His nurse gave me paperwork for more blood tests which I'm sure were for HCG levels, but no explanation was given to me. Needless to say I've switched doctors and my first appointment with my new doctor is tomorrow. I've been kind of freaking out this week and am so anxious to find out if everything is ok or not. This pregnancy was definitely not planned but I feel attached & love this baby already.
I'm happy all turned out well with yours, it must have been such a relief!!
Well my appointment didn't go so well. The new doctor is wonderful and explained everything very compassionately but it turns out my baby stopped developing at about 7 weeks. My hcg levels and a 3rd ultrasound confirmed that even though my body doesn't realize it yet, I'll be miscarrying soon. I've scheduled a d&c in a few weeks. I spent all day yesterday crying & grievinng. Now I just feel numb. It's terrible to still feel pregnant even though there won't be a baby but I wanted to wait a bit to give nature a chance to run its course. Thank you for the prayers ladies. I wish you all the best with your little ones.
Hey guys, I just wanted to see if any of you had an apt around 10wks and DID NOT get a heartbeat on the doppler. I just went in to get checked for a heartbeat on baby and we couldn't find one. I am 9wks6days. I need some reassurance.
