First I went in and lost 2 lbs, I know no big deal but this how I strated the last one. Losing weight.
I got to meet the Dr. and she was wonderful. She completely understood every worry I had and I still hadn't said anything, (but anwser her questions). She started to talk about my u/s and how she is going to squedule an earlier one at 19 weeks so that I could be at ease, and then she said she may get me a lvl 2 u/s to see the baby much clearer. I thought wow she is really nice, she is going to try real hard to work with me.
So I was confident about the hearing the heart beat from you guys and when you all did. She couldn't find it. I was nervous I was really looking forward to hearing it. She said she was not concerned. Then she gave me my internal and she said my uterus was tipped a lot more than it should. By now it should be more straight, but she said maybe I am not as far along as I thought and this could be the reason for both.
By the end of the appointment she squeduled an u/s and sent me one my way, at first I was real excited, wow so early. Never got one this ealry before.
As I was waiting for the u/s I was reading her paper. She was checking for dates, fetal h/b and the size of my uterus. She wrote it was small. So I got myself all worked up, I thought, I knew it when my symptoms went away. I just know how this is going to turn out. And all I kept thinking was I don't want to have to tell anyone the news.
But ladies it was good news, I saw the heart beating and I started crying. The nurse who was giving me the u/s was crying too we were also talking about the last time and how it ended. And the baby measured 11 weeks as it should.
I asked her too if they saved previous one and she said yes, I could ask the Dr. to send in a request for copies and I could get an u/s pic of my angel baby. I think I will do that. It is there policey not to, I had told her I wished I asked before I left and always regreted not.
Thank you ladies I can't wait to read more happy posts.
Robin I read your appointment went well also, congratulations!!
