I really had hoped for all uneventful OB appts for this pregnancy, but I guess that was not to be.

I went in today. I was already kinda stressed out because I had to take DS with me and he was fussy since DH didn't make him take a nap today. Then when I got back to the room the nurse couldn't find the heartbeat. I was freaking out. She did say she thought she could hear an echo, but couldn't get a count. Finally after a few mins of trying she asked me if my bladder was full. I guess at 14wks baby is right below the bladder and I hadn't gone in 2 hrs. So she let me empty and when I got back she found HB right away. It was 153bpm. I was so relieved. No one had ever told me to pee first. Not even when I was PG with DS.

Then the Dr came in. It was my first time meeting him. I don't think I ever got to see him with DS. It was real quick from there. He measured my belly. I was able to ask him about the fact that I seem to be getting fever blisters alot right now. He told me I can still use the Carmex that I always use when I get one, and he wasn't too concerned since it's only been going on for 2wks. But if it continues then I need to let them know.

On the plus side I get to find out the sex in 4wks. So baby willing I will know if we have a boy or girl on June 22nd. I'm so excited. So all in all a pretty good appt.

Glad everything turned out ok! That happened to me at one of my earlier appts, the dr couldn't find the HB and told me it was probably too early. Thing is, I had found it the night before at home with my doppler! She ended up doing a quick u/s which was nice until I saw the bill!

So happy the appt turned out well!!! I would have had a panic attack if that happened to me- I'm so glad you were able to hear the HB & YAY for scheduling your big u/s

Thanks ladies. With having to work before my appt and then having to take DS with me I didn't even think to go to the bathroom. And my Dr wants FMU so I have to take my sample with me. Oh well lesson learned. I just hope I don't have to take DS anymore. He was tired and fussy so I don't think I went over all I could have with the Dr. But I'm so excited to get to have my ultra sound in 4 weeks. I thought they would make me wait the full 8wks until I was 22wks along.
