So, I went to the dr. last week because I had been cramping quite a bit, no spotting though. It had been a rough week stress wise and I didn't know if it was from the stress or just normal growing. Dr. told me that everything was measuring normail. HB for baby was good, bp was good for me. I shouldn't have anything to worry about. Dr. did tell me that if I wanted an u/s to make sure that everything was ok, then she would order me one. No problem. I asked her opinion and she said that everything looked good and that the decision was up to me.
I have my regular appt tomorrow, July 6. Since my appt last week, I have been a non-stop worry wart. Ok, it has been more than since last week. I just keep thinking that something is wrong w/baby. I know that a lot of it is because of my two losses.
So....would you guys get the u/s? I am leaning towards yes. Mainly to give me peace of mind more than anything else. Maybe after the u/s I could start to enjoy my pregnancy? I could quit dwelling on all the bad stuff that could happen???? I just don't know...........

I'm a worrier after my m/c history so honestly I say why not get the u/s? If you can do something that will give you peace of mind and reassurance and your dr is fine with giving you one then why not? I know its hard not to dwell on the bad things we've been through and I still have days where I go into panic mode and worry but thats why I would do anything to make myself reassured. I say go for it!!!

I'd get the u/s in a heartbeat. As for enjoying the pregnancy... good luck. Seriously, you have to make a concerted effort to enjoy it or you will dwell on your losses and worry about every little thing. I still worry a lot, but I am so uncomfortable right now I just want her out that it helps distract me from the worry.
I agree with everyone else. If it will give you peace of mind then get the U/S. Worry causes stress and stress effects your body and baby. I think that whatever you can do to remain as relaxed and stress-free as possible during your pregnancy will only help contribute to his/her well-being.
