I have been really anxious and nervous since I got to the second tri because I feel better but don't feel anything yet but I was really trying to be good and not call my OB...until yesterday when I started cramping. I haven't really cramped since around 6-8 wks and if I do it usually goes away fairly quickly after resting and drinking a lot of water. Well I cramped all day yesterday and all night last night and still some today. So I called and I have an appt for 130. I am sure it is fine and my uterus is just really stretching this week but I am really paranoid. I also know my BP fluctuates when I am stressed and it is already on the high side so even though I have my 16 wk appt next week I think I need some reassurance before then. I also have been leaking (TMI) urine so they want to do a UA. I am sure it is just from my bladder being squished but I am not complaining about getting it checked just in case. I really tried to go the whole 4 weeks (that seems like forever!!) between appts without freaking out but I just couldn't do it any more.

I am just like you. I just had my appointment last Monday and I already want to go back and make sure everything is ok. I have felt less movement and just want to make sure everything is ok. This month is going to be really hard. Mu next ultrasound and appointment is on the day I lost my last pregnancy. So This month is going to be very nerve racking.... I think that patient that have had a loss should go every two weeks. Not that we need it,but just to reasure us that everthing is ok.. So you are not alone in feeling this way

I completely understand! I only was able to go for a 4 wk period once in my entire pregnancy. Hopefully your doctor is as kind and understanding as mine was, and is perfectly fine with you coming in when you need the reassurance. I hope everything is Ok with the cramping, and that you dodn't have a UTI!! I'll be keeping an eye out for your update this afternoon, KUP, K. PAL is HARD!!!!

I totally understand. If I didn't rent a doppler I probably would have had the office on speed dial!

My doc was great and said I could call anytime and come in for a HB check if I needed it. I never had to call, but it was nice to know dr's DO understand our fears sometimes.

On August 2, 2012 we lost Sarah at 17 weeks. Her pictures can be viewed at http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/sarahdarrohn
There is no known explanation for my losses.

My old doctor was like Bobbie's: I could call any time I needed it, and did take them up on it a couple times when I was pregnant with Erin. I'm glad your Dr got you in today! I really hope you don't have a uti >_< Good luck!
Thanks to babydoll213 for the siggy! My kids' blog Cora's blog

I just got home and everything is fine. I feel sooo much better. Baby's HB was 150 and strong. She found the HB on the doppler right away...this was the first time I have heard it on the doppler. Urine and vag swab were both clean and my cervix is nice and closed. I told her how my cramping got better after a big BM and she just laughed at me! I am still tender in that area but I guess it is normal. I just kept saying...I don't know what is normal, I have never done this before! She is great though, she never makes me feel stupid for worrying so much. She actually was glad I came in before my appt next week because she forgot to give me the glucola drink last time I was there. She wants me to do it early at 16 w because of my high risk so I will do it next week before my regular appt. Oh and the best part was my blood pressure!! It has been running high this past year or so and we were keeping an eye on it while I am pg. Last appt at 11w it was 138/90...today it was 115/75!!!!!!!! I was shocked! So all in all it was a great "extra" appt and I am so glad I went for the peace of mind at least. Thanks for all the support girls!!!!
