My last pregnancy back in 09 ended in a missed miscarriage so although I'm excited about this pregnancy I'm pretty nervous. My next appointment isn't for another 2 weeks and it's driving me crazy. Do you think if I ask the dr to come in to hear the hb next week they'd be willing?

Doesn't hurt to call and ask, especially with your history. GL!

Ask! I know how you feel. My appt is in 2 weeks. I got my own u/s 2 weeks ago. And guess what I'm doing again today?? Yep, another u/s. I've felt "different" and mostly I can acknowledge that I am just feeling anxiety, a part of me wonders if things are ok. I am telling myself this is the last time and then I'll just have to try and trust that everything will be ok. Anxiety sucks.

I am RIGHT THERE with you! I don't know why I'm so paranoid or worried this time around, but I am. It's awful. I am also wondering if I could just sneak in for a hb check on the doppler and not a full appointment, but I haven't asked yet. Every day, though, I do wonder and I think I should throw it out to her and see if she'll do it for me.

I called. I'm not far enough along yet. I'll be 10 weeks at my next appt and that is when you can hear the hb on the doppler they said.

Could you rent a doppler to ease your mind?

Hope the anxiety lets up sooner than later!

My advice, don't rent a doppler unless you are certain it will not increase your anxiety...
I tried one at 8.5 weeks and freaked out, went to ER bc I couldnt find the HB... I was too early to hear it with the doppler they said... BUT they did an U/S there and I got to see that everything was great!!

I called my Dr on monday, and they got me in on wed to do an U/S to see how things were going, based on my history and my anxiety, they usually let me in as often as I want. which has been pretty frequent since I found out I was pregnant... Weve seen our lil one 5 times in 5 weeks... After 14-16 weeks, I wont be freaking out as much,when I can actually feel the baby

I know EXACTLY how you feel. Although I had a great ultrasound last week and saw a hearbeat of 146 and appropriate gestational growth of (at the time 7w+1d)... I am an axiety ridden basket case. My last four pregnancies ended in MC with low heartbeats and growth a week or two behind. So things look good, but i analyze everything from symptoms coming and going to eating etc. I can find every reason in the book as to why what I am feeling symptom wise is NOT related to pregnancy and that it is over. Some days I feel completely not preg and then others i feel it. I got a sonoline B doppler and I have been trying every day for the last four days and I can't get it to pick upl. I am only 8w1d though. Still way early, but I have heard of others getting their baby's hb at 8w4d and on... so i iwll keep trying and praying. I hope you find some relief soon. Don't you wish you could truly enjoy this? I know I do, but that will never happen
