I feel like I'm in a 4-week-wait.

This is my 5th pregnancy, the last two were miscarriages. The first loss I miscarried at 10w2d. With the second loss, I had an ultrasound at 6w6d that showed a heartbeat, but then at my first appointment there wasn't one anymore.

My husband and I decided we'd wait until 8 weeks for an ultrasound this time. Partially because I feel that an ultrasound at 8 weeks would have shown no heartbeat with either loss and partially because at 8 weeks my clinic will let me have my first appointment. I do not want to have an ultrasound with no heartbeat and have to wait for my doctor to follow up with me--I want an appointment right after the ultrasound to discuss it.

So here I am, 12DPO with a positive test, in a 4 week wait until we'll have an ultrasound. A four week wait wondering if this baby is really alive or if this will be another loss.
