I had my u/s at 6w2d where we saw the heartbeat. So I felt good about that for awhile. But now I am nervous again. I don't have my next appt until the 18th and I know he is doing another u/s because he didn't measure the baby last time (said she was too small and would do it next time).
But I am just so nervous that they won't find a h/b. Am I going to worry about this every appt? Probably huh?.
I did rent a doppler which should be coming next week. It says you can hear the h/b at 8 weeks, I'll be closer to 9 1/2 when it comes. I hope I can find it. Of course once I do find it or have my next u/s and see everything is ok, I'll start worrying about is the baby ok, is it normal?
Sheesh. I'm a mess.
After we had found out that Cassie was perfect and healthy and no problems I just sighed a big sigh of relief because we were done. We had our 3rd baby, she was healthy, no more worry. Just sit and enjoy the 2nd half of pregnancy. Well she died like 2 days later. I guess we are never safe.
Maybe I wasn't ready yet to be pregnant again, maybe all this worrying will drive me crazy....
You sound just like me before my last appointment. I had seen the HB at 6 1/2 weeks, but that excitement quickly turned to fears 2 weeks before my 10 1/2 week appt. If you remember, my symptoms had eased up and I was certain that it was a bad sign. Everything turned out to be fine, saw our baby dancing around and everything, but now as my next appointment nears, I'm getting nervous again. I think it's just something that happens to our minds after experiencing a loss. Hang in there, I'm sure you're doing great. Just take it day by day.
I think it is only normal to worry after what has happened...I called to have a "consult" with my dr. I told the receptionist specifically no u/s until I am at least 6 wks...i might even wait till 7 because I need to see that heartbeat. My fertility specialist who conducted my surgery said that once there is a heartbeat you have a 90% chance of carrying to term. Obviously there's that other 10% but I'm feeling hopeful...
hang in there hun. I know this must be so nerve wracking for you. I already feel it myself and i've only known I'm pg for 2 days now...
