The nurse just called, she talked to my Dr. he said I could come in 1 week from today but he wanted to be sure that I knew they might not be able to see anything yet. I will be out of town 2 weeks from today so made an appt for 11/7 at 4 p.m. - I'll be just 1 day away from being 7 weeks. I would love to go in for an earlier ultrasound but I think I may be more freaked out if they can't see anything yet. It's probably best for me to go in later.
As far as the spotting he said this could have just been implantation bleeding. Looking back at my calendar it started at 2 weeks 6 (8 DPO) days and ended at 4 weeks (just about 1 week). Seems a little long to be implantation bleeding but what do I know.
If I wouldn't have taken a test early and just waited until I missed my period I might not be so freaked out right now. I can't take it back though so I'll just cross my fingers the spotting stays away and I don't have any other issues.
I don't blame you for waiting to go in to see the dr. I know I would be freaked out if they did an early u/s and they couldn't see anything. you might be right about the implantation bleeding. I think it can last for several days. I've never had it but that might be it. Fingers crossed that it does not come back.
That's the problem with TTCAL you are always POAS so you find out very early. I can never wait either. I always tell myself to wait but end up doing it anyway.
The waiting game is so hard, isn't it? Wait to ovulate, then wait to test, then wait to get far enough along to see something, then wait to get past the 1st trimester, then wait, wait wait till you get to hold your baby...ugh! Hope the time goes by fast till your appointment.
I agree, it's stressful during the whole pregnancy. You have some highs and some lows but you always worry. I think waiting until your almost 7 weeks is a good idea. I had my first ultrasound at 6.3 weeks and the tech said it looked like his heart had JUST started beating that day or maybe the day before (not sure how they can tell)... but I would have been a mess if I had an earlier appointment and they didn't see the heart beating yet. Actually I was freaking out a bit at my first ultrasound because I couldn't see the screen and she asked me to hold my breath and not move at all so she could see if the heart was beating. Ack, anyways 7 weeks is a good time to go It will be here before you know it! I will be counting the days with you.
I hope it flies by! I got to see mine at 6w3d and the little bean looked just like that, a bean with a little flickering heartbeat. They had to do an internal to see it, and I went in because of bleeding as well.
I hope your appointment is good and you feel reassurance after it!

So glad you got an appointment! The waiting is really hard, but I went in too early (thinking I was further along) and it really was horrible, then we had to wait and wait until the next appt to make sure I was far enough along. good choice, even though it's a hard one
