Well Ladies, I am 8 weeks today. For those of you who do not know me too well, my name is Katie, mommy to almost 18 month old Esella. I had a loss in Jan at 5 weeks and a chemical in March. Then got knocked up in April

I have been so worried. I took pregnancy tests up to like 21 DPO or something! (I have the pics, if anyone is interested! Ha ha). I had my first appt last Wed. It was SO different from my appt with dd at that point. In my old office they did an u/s at 7-8 weeks to check for viability...no pelvic exams until like 38 weeks (if everything was ok). This time I had to have a pelvic exam and no u/s The midwife I met with ordered one due to my somewhat irregular cycles (only had 4 since having my dd...BFing....).

And that u/s is tomorrow.

I am SO scared that we will not see a baby/heart beat. Petrified.

It doesn't help that my symptoms are TOTALLY different from my dd.....with her I had VERY sore boobs, was sooooo tired, face broken out, and was bloated. This time, I had a lot of nausea weeks 5 and 6, but it eased i n week 7 (scaring the hell out of me). No sore boobs. Only one zit. Kinda tired. I do have the bloating tho...

UGH. I HATE this. I just want to know I have a baby in there with a beating heart.

OK thanks for reading girls. End vent.

Katie

************************************************** **************

Update.

Well..today was a tough day...my u/s was at 3pm pacific time. I worked today (I work part time during the school year) so that helped the time go by...

So I finally get in and I am holding so much pee! Lol. The tech is sweet and says she will take measurements first and then show me baby.

Longest 10 min as she did her thing...

But then she turned the screen to me and said...

THERE IS BABY! And there is the heart beat!!


SUCH relief!!! Measuring 2 days ahead from where I think I am (8-1 based on O date, 8-3 on u/s).

One giant hurdle OVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks for your kind words and understanding. It helps soooo much!!

Now.....how to tell the grandparents......

Katie

Katie, I hope you get good news at your ultrasound tomorrow. My first appointment is tomorrow and I'm struggling with if I want to request an ultrasound or not. The last one showed a blighted ovum and I can't handle seeing that again. I'll be hoping and praying you see a perfect little bean with a strong heartbeat!!

I know this doesn't help but it is totally normal to freak out before an u/s. Remember each pregnancy is different which means the symptoms can be different each time. Best of luck and please keep us posted.
