It started out as not so good a day. I lost it in the car once I hit the street where the office is. I was on that road when it sank in after the u/s when I lost the first baby. It was just too much for me today. I am almost to the point where the heart stopped beating (11w). I was driving with tears just flowing away. I think it was nerves. Anyways....
I saw the regular OB today. I have seen her before ( there are 3 Dr's in the practice) the one I REALLY like is no longer delivering So she was my next choice. She did a pap to check for infection. YAY!!! I sooo hope that is what has been causing the bleeding/spotting cause that would be the *easy* answer. She also gave me a script for progesterone! YAY! She said if it isn't an infection, the progesterone may make the spotting go away. And the best part......... she took me out of work for TWO weeks!!!!! I finally feel like I am getting someone to listen and do what I know in my heart is best to keep this baby baking away.
So overall.... I had an awesome apt. I am going to call tomorrow and schedule the first trimester screening ultrasound. She gave me the paper work for that too. My next apt is with the nurse on July 23 and then the Dr on July 25.
So that's my update..... oh and Amanda and I went shopping today and I actually bought some baby stuff!!!! Man that felt good once I got past that sinking fear that if I buy stuff my baby will die. I know dumb but normal I guess. I will post pics later

If you would like to see pictures of my sweet (but tiny) boy they can be viewed at www.caringbridge.org/visit/noahdarrohn they aren't the easiest pitures to look at but I am willing to share them with anyone who would like to see them <3
sounds great! glad she took you off work for a bit & is checking for infection and trying the progesterone to see if it helps the spotting. i love it when doctors are thorough, it makes a big difference.
can't wait to see the stuff you bought.
YAY for a great appointment and double YAY YAY for being off work for two week!!!!!!!
I'm sorry the the day did not start to well for you, but it sound like it ended up being a great day, got your Ob to finally really check for that spotting and bought baby stuff.
i can understand being scared. but glad to hear things went well, now maybe that darn spotting will stop and you can relax.
and i too think that if i buy maternity pants my baby will die =( you're not alone in feeling paranoid.
