My doctors appt was originally Friday 3/17 but I couldn't take it anymore! I called my OB today to beg them to get me in sooner... so I'm going tomorrow. It's 1 day sooner, but sooner still. The nurse asked me why I was worried and I told her that "I just feel too good.." She asked what my symptoms were and I told her - light nausea, usually in the evenings, after emals, or if I smell something strange.... porn-star nipples, darker nipples.... sensitivity to heat. She was very reassuring and said that sounded perfectly normal for how far along I am. I told her I wished I was just so sick I was bedridden, and she said believe it or not, that is rarely the case. I guess I use JM as my research foundation, but really this is just a small piece of the pie here. I told her my concerns about missed m/c and blighted ovum, and she said not to worry.... look out for cramping and spotting and otherwise try to stay calm. Of course she mentioned how rare those complications were - I'm not sure if this made me feel better, but it did help me to realize that maybe I do need to look outside of JM for my statistics. I think I research myself to death and that's why I freak out so much...

So anyways, TOMORROW is the big day... I keep telling myself, I can TRULY relax once I see the h/b. So hopefully I will have good news. I feel good about this pregnancy. I really do.

My first Drs. appointment is also tomorrow what time is yours?
I am nervous too, I thought I should be able to hear the h/b if they were going to put the doppler on and I thought I would feel better. But then I came to realize am I suppose to hear the h/b at 11 weeks? Is it too soon? I have no idea and now I am going to be stressed for another month if I can't.

Where I come from they do not like to give u/s only one and they have to make an excuse for the insurance company to cover it. All you ladies make me so jealous, I just don't think I can wait that long.

But seriously is it too soon to hear a h/b at 11 weeks?

i know lots of people who had lots of symptoms and had a missed m/c so symtoms don't mean squat in my book. but i understand worrying about it. we all do. even before when i had nothing to worry about i worried.

it doesn't go away either. i'm still convinced that the perinatal center will call me back and say oops we messed up your amnio results there really is a problem.

i'd tell you to relax, but knowing myself it does no good. rent a doppler when you are further a long (around 8-10 weeks) it is a life saver when you are convinced there is a problem.

My DH and I heard this baby's heartbeat at 9 weeks
in the doctor's office. There is a good cahnce you will
be able to find it, but don't worry too much if you can't.
Most doctor's will do an ultrasound to check for heartrate
that early!! Just think, you might get to see your little ones
tomorrow!

Good luck, and I will be thinking about you.

Leah

I agree with Susan symptoms mean nothing in some cases. With my mmc I was sick the entire time.

This time around I was less sick and everything is good so far. I heard the h/b at 10weeks 4days.

Good luck

I will be thinking about you tomorrow as well - I go in tomorrow afternoon to have a 2nd opinion (suggested to me last week by my RE) on the blighted ovum. I hope your u/s goes very well & I iwll be looking for a full report. I agree with your Dr as well - you know too many of us "oddities" here - that's how we end up being here so long & thus increasing the chance of you hearing the whole story - what has happened to many of us here at Jm - especially at PL isn't in any way the norm & it isn't going to happen to you like that - I just don't believe it. ((hugs))) I will be thinking of you & hoping for the absolute best.

Sounds like a big day for a lot of people. I wish everyone of you ladies good luck

As for the symptom thing, I went to the ER because I thought mine were waning. The nurse looked at me like I was crazy and said that meant that I was lucky. About a week later my symptoms really hit and now I feel almost normal. I hope you all have great appointments. I will be at work, but can't wait to see the results when I get home tonight. I will be praying for everyone.

Well, today is the day - my doc's office just called and asked if I could come a bit later - apparently he had an emergency surgery... sure, I suppose I could. I was only planning on taking half a day off though - I'll let you all know what happens...

I saw my Baby heartbeat at 7.3 weeks on the ultrasound. I tell you it was a great thing to finally see her after a loss.

Well I'm back - WHAT A RELIEF!!! I got there an hour early and tried to calm myself down. The doc arrived early so things were underway before I knew it. My BP was excellent (which wa a surprise, considering how crazy I felt). The lights went off, u/s machine in, and there he was! I could totally see the little arm and leg buds. I couldn't see the h/b though - it looked so far away. SO he started showing me "Here's the arm/leg buds, here's the yolk sac behind and the amnion surrounding....." I'm like AND!?!?! He says "Yes, I saw the h/b, and I know you're wigged out.." so he zoomed it in and ther it was - I don't think I've ever seen anything so beautiful (except for Sebastian's). We are officially 8 weeks 2 days, due date 10/25 but I will be c-sectioned around the 18th. I can FINALLY relax!!!!

Yay, I'm so happy about the h/b. I predict you will relax for a week or so, and then it's back to worrying At least that seems to be the trend on this board, hehe.
