So I had a very scary experience at the doc's today. I went in expecting to have a PAP and full exam. Not too bad. Didn't realize that they were not doing an u/s, so DH really didn't need to be there, but I'm glad he was. The doc decided that I didn't need the PAP because it's only been a couple of months since my last one. So instead we talked about my back issues and some other stuff then she said that we were going to listen to the heartbeat!!! That's when it started. She pulled out the dopler and tried and tried but couldn't get anything. She kept trying for about 10 minutes or so. Then she said that my uterus was probably tipped back, so everything else was in the way and that's why she couldn't hear it. And she said that she wasn't worried. But in my mind, that didn't help. So I think she saw the panic on mine and DH's faces. So she ordered an u/s. I had to go back to work for 2 hours then go back for the u/s. That was the longest 2 hours I've ever had. I did loose it at work too thinking what is going to happen. The girls at work were great in trying to cheer me up and to get me to think only happy thoughts. So then DH met me back at the doc's for the u/s. Sure enough, there she was...moving all around...heart beating fast as can be...180...so we felt better. (See 180...I told ya it's gonna be a girl!!!!) The tech is always so nice and she knew why we were there and as soon as she started the u/s (internal) she said "There it is..." We even got to hear the heartbeat through the u/s machine...It was the greatest sound I've ever heard....She said that the doc shouldn't have even tried the dopler until after 11 weeks. But the baby was moving around a lot during the u/s and she said that could have done it too...I'll tell ya....I've never been so happy...And I get to stop all the injections!!!! I just wanted to share with you girls, as you are like family.....and I didn't anyone else to experience this alone....So I go in for my Downs screening in two weeks then another appt two weeks later.....As soon as DH gets the printer hooked back up, I'll post the u/s pics....It looks like a baby now, not a grape!!!!

Oh, Casey! What a relief! I can imagine that the two hours at work were torture. It is very common to have difficulty getting a hb on the doppler at 10 weeks. I had the same experience at 9 -luckily they were planning on doing an u/s anyway b/c I was spotting. I'm so glad that everything is ok!!!!

on a side note: our hb was also 180!

Casey, that must have been a difficult wait. I'm glad you were able to finally hear the heart beat and that you can stop the injections!

You poor dear! Doctors should be VERY careful about what they say and how they say it! Glad to hear everything is alright, though - week 10. Wow!

I don't know how you went back to work for two hours - I'm so glad everything was okay. Sounds like your doc should refrain from even trying to find the heartbeat until someone is past 11 weeks (going from what the tech said).

Glad everything was alright Casey. I have had that happened before with Ariana's pregnancy and with the first attempt for this surrogacy. I cant believe they made you wait 2 hours. I would have ended up losing it to. I am very glad to hear everything is alright.

The only reason I was able to go back to work was my coworkers....They just kept me busy so I couldn't think about it and when I was starting to get upset again, they would just comfort me and say things like "Think positive." "Don't worry. You've come too far to worry yourself like this." "And we are here for you." If I had been working with other people in the store, I don't think I would have made it as well....
