Ok. I know it sounds weird, but I'm NOT looking forward to the u/s tomorrow. We found out that Marshall was gone at an u/s...his image is seared into my brain, and because she had to record "a lack of a hearbeat", that sound is in my brain too...the white noise.

I'm scared, and angry, and I don't know why I am angry. I am trying to relax, but I can't!!

I HOPE to come on tomorrow and tell y'all how far along we are and when baby is due...

Please let it be a good U/S. Please...

You know, I don't like ultrasounds either. I had one today, and before that we'd checked the heartbeat and he was moving around, and I STILL got nervous as the tech squirted my belly with the jelly stuff.


You're angry because you don't have Marshall with you right now. That's why. Take deep breaths and I'll pray that everything goes fabulously tomorrow!

I feel the same way as you at every ultrasound.

I don't care how many times I have heard my baby's heartbeat, I am terrified of that ultrasound image. I, too, had to see a "failed" pregnancy via ultrasound. Something I would like to get out of my memory.

Everything will be fine!!

I think it's the worst thing that any mother could see. >_< Makes me want to cry just thinking about it.

I, too, have been there, done that...getting bad news via ultrasound.

But, the good news is, it doesn't always happen that way--this pregnancy is proof!!

Good luck today and I will be anxious to read your good news!!

ETA:How far along are you today??

U/S are very scary for me too...I think they are for all of us. But the fear melts as soon as you get to see your healthy little peanut on that screen It will be ok Heather (((HUGS)))

Are you going to the same office that you went to with Marshal? Before the tech starts tell them it is very important to you that they announce the baby is fine as soon as s/he see's the baby. They should be sensitive to your situation.

I will say a little prayer for you too. I can't wait for your happy update!

The u/s I had today was at the same place where my bad one was last year. Only difference is I'm a week and a half earlier. I drove a different vehicle, parked in a different place in the parking lot, sat on the opposite side of the waiting room, and when they took me back I saw the two doors at the end of the hallway- the one to the left was last time and I was strangely happy when they took me to the door on the right. I wanted today to be different on all levels! I kept telling myself if they say "there's no heartbeat" like last time I'd demand a second opinion. I was soooooo scared. The lady was really nice and said there's the heartbeat and turned the sounds up right away.

I'm THRILLED for you Allison!!! Yay!!!!!

It was a different place, and honestly, when she used the outside thingy, all you could see was the gestational sac, and I started shivering and crying. She pressed harder, showing me a shadow where the baby could be. I got ready for the internal, and she immediately turned the screen towards me, smiled, and turned up the sound!!!

It was so great to see this LO. I am trying to tell myself it's ok to relax and enjoy this pregnancy.
