So, this was one of your basic, run-of-the-mill appointments. I gained 4 lbs!! YAY! I'm a little worried that I'm going to explode now...but I'd rather explode than throw up all the time!
So, it turns out that Dr. Allred's first child was stillborn too. It was amazing to have a Dr. who knows exactly how it feels. He was the first one to ask how I was doing emotionally with this pregnancy, and whether the anxiety was causing any undue stress. It was a great little heart-to-heart that we had. And he's the only one of the three who wasn't taken aback a little by the idea of inducing early, to him it was obvious. Drs. Barton and Crouch are all for it...but it just didn't occur to them right away I guess.
I didn't ask about the dopplar. When I asked him what the heart rate was, he said the screen on his was broken and he didn't want to ask to get it replaced because they were so expensive. So I just didn't ask about it >_<
I just wanted to thank you ladies for doing so well in keeping me sane. Honestly. I thought of all of you when Dr. Allred asked how I was doing emotionally.

that's so great, I'm glad that you Doctor understands somewhat, what it is you and DH are going through! It always helps when someone views us from an emotional level, as opposed to a purely medical level..... "Don't worry your anxiety will pass" doesn't help, but having someone LISTEN to you, and being able to sympathise with what you're going through, that is something different altogether
