My first OB appt is in a few hours (about 3.5, to be exact). I'm crazy nervous. I wasn't this nervous before my first appt with Liam. I'm so worried that something is wrong, they won't find a HB, or that the OB will tell me I'm not a good candidate for VBAC.

DH's work schedule can be a little unpredictable, so I couldn't plan on him being able to be there with me. I called my mom last week and asked her to come. I'm happy she's coming, but for some reason that's making me nervous too. She's not pushy, so I have to reason to expect her to butt in, but for some reason I keep thinking that's what she's going to do.

I'll update when I get home which probably won't be until 3:30 (west coast time).

*Breathe! Whatever will be, will be.*

I totally feel your pain! I have 2 more weeks until mine, and I am doing my best to be patient!

Good luck. I hope it goes better than you expect.

My first was at 9 weeks. I was crazy nervous.
Hope you get to see the baby.

We have a heartbeat!

The nurse did just a quick external U/S to check for a heartbeat and we saw the little flutter. Next week I'll go back in and get the full U/S for dating, etc. The nurse was looking around for a while, pushing kind of hard, and changing angles. Then she says "I think I just see one in there, but the next ultrasound will get a better look."

The doctor said I'm mostly a good candidate for VBAC, but they are concerned about size. Liam was born at 38 weeks and was 8 lbs 6 oz. He said they would let me try the VBAC, but they aren't enthusiastic about them with babies over 9 lbs. If Liam had gone to 40 weeks, he totally would have been there. They will want to do an ultrasound at 36 weeks to estimate the size of the baby and make a recommendation from there.

Anyway, that's the news!
