I know I don't post very often, and I apologize, I need to be more active here.

I am seriously good for like a week after my appointment and then all the fear starts creeping back in.

Last week we saw a beautiful 12 week baby. I thought I was starting to feel some fluttering. But then again, maybe just wishful thinking.

I really thought by this point with my boys I was feeling something. But I can't remember for sure.

I just have this horrible dread that something has gone wrong, and it doesn't go away until I am reassured all is well at my appointments. It is going to be a long 3 weeks.

Maybe if I had a doppler I'd feel more at ease, but I don't and I can't afford one. So wait I must.

Sorry you're having a tough time, Ami! That is wonderful you saw a healthy baby at your u/s! For me, the best thing is to try to keep busy and distract myself... if I leave myself to my thoughts too often, I get myself all freaked out, kwim? So glad everything is going well for you so far!

((hugs)) The time between appointments is so hard. Hopefully you'll start to feel your baby soon. Is there any way that your doctor would let you come in for a quick heartbeat check halfway between appointments?

You can find a sonoline B for about $50 and sell it for probably $35 when you're done with it. I don't know if that would work for you, but it's something to think about.

The hardest thing is the wait from one appointment to the next, it's 4 weeks of stressing yourself out, and worrying. I Hate it, I can't wait until I get to go twice a week.
I try to distract myself, at work it's easy most of the time and at home, I just keep busy with DS, which is not hard to do since he is 3
I know some places do rent Dopplers, I can't recall any right now

We are having a hard time keeping enough money in the back to buy gas right now, and the gas prices don't look like they are coming down soon, until we have some extra cash, I can't spend any money.

I like the idea of going in for a "quick visit" but the close office is over an hour away, it would be $50 in gas just to get there and back..

I just wish the waiting were easier and that I could feel some real movement.
