So I just made my appointment for my first U/S... it will be Oct 27. I should be exactly 7 weeks that day. I know that the next three weeks are going to drag by and that I'm just going to get more and more nervous as it gets closer.

With my last pregnancy I thought I was almost 8 weeks and measured 6.5 at the first U/S. But I was preventing and had no idea when I'd ovulated so I didn't have any reason to worry. Now I'm convinced that it was measuring behind. So if things look right on at this U/S it will alleviate some of my worry for this little bean. And this time I was charting and know right when I O'd so I'll have a good sense of it.

But I have butterflys just thinking about it right now...

Yes that first u/s especially with early losses are very worrisome. I hope the next 3 weeks fly by for you.

Thanks .:Shortcake:. for my great siggie

I think everyone gets nervous after having a disappointing u/s. I know our little girl measured a week small at our first u/s...but when we came back a week later she was growing. I'm almost 32 weeks now and they think she's going to be small for her age, but is otherwise doing good.

Just try and stay positive...there is no point in worrying yourself at this point. Faith over fear. Hopefully the next 3 weeks will fly by for you!!

I hope the time flies by! I know the wait can drive one crazy... I was always so nervous in between the early ultrasounds.

Becky we are here for you the next to help get you through the next 3 weeks. Hopefully they will fly by for you. The u/s during the first trimester are very hard after a loss, but I have such a good feeling for you. This is your sticky bean.

Thank you *Kiliki* for my beautiful siggy
