from calling and going in to get a scan done this week.

Been freaking myself out the last day or so, because my m/s is beginning to subside (which I know is normal) and I still can't pick up the HB on the doppler yet (also normal).
But also because baby measured differently last week from the RE's office to the peri's, which I know was probably because one was trans-vaginal the other abdominal.
And we are very close tot he date I lost Spud. Granted we are past his dates but the calendar dates is next week, and I am scheduled for my NT scan on Tuesday. So it's not like I have to wait several weeks. I have one week, but my nerves are shot.
I'm also reconsidering the CVS, DH doesn't want to do it, he thinks it's not worth the risk since baby looked fine. But.....

Anyway just freaking myself out. I'm trying to convince myself NOT to call. I managed to never take them up on the anxiety scans with CJ, but this one is really hard.
-update-
All is good! Baby measuring perfect, moving around a lot and HB was 158.
I can breathe now

I would try to talk you down, but I think if it is going to calm your nerves, then you should do it. I'd go for anything that helps to make you feel better.

Like you said, everything is normal, but sometimes we just need reassurance.

I have to agree, the stress isn't good for you or the baby and if it will make you feel better you should just call. You have every right to need some reassurance. Sorry you are feeling so anxious

I am right there with you Sam. I have my NT Scan scheduled for Monday and it can't get here fast enough. I just passed my lost date but I know that I am really wanting a scan this week just to check and make sure that baby is doing okay. If I was you I would probably call and get a scan. I just ordered my doppler so I'm hoping once I get that it can give me some peace of mind.

I hope this next week passes fast for you and Tuesday gets here quickly. that is if you don't call for a scan this week..lol.

Sam I'm glad your going in and having it done. If nothing else it gives you an extra time to see the baby KUP!

Glad you got in... I'm with the other ladies: if you're going to be freaking out and you can get in without much hassle why not?

I would have called and gone in too. Heck, I would have had an ultrasound every day if I could.

Looking forward to your update!!
