I went to my dr appt today at 3:00 ( which for some unexplanied ) reason I freak out, think the worst before every doctor's appt.

But GREAT news today

I heard the babies heart beat 176bpm ( at 6weeks 5 days it was 129bpm)
my blood pressure is still a little high 138/68 but better than last week ( on Tuesday it was 140/80 )
I lost another 2 pounds ( total of 5 pounds so far ) Morning sickness like crazy
and they took me off prometruim ( wow the baby has taken over on its own )
I am no longer high risk ( for now anyways)

1 more week and I will be in the 2nd Trimester after having 3 miscarriages I have never felt better.....

I will now see the doctor every 4 weeks untill I am 28weeks then it will be ever 2 weeks till I am 36weeks then everyweek untill the baby is born. WOW ( I can believe this is happening)

I am thinking about renting a fetal heart doppler from babybeat.com? I know a few of you girls have them
will it be worth the $30.00ish bucks a month?????

Thank you all for your prayers, hugs, and thoughts they worked and I really needed them.

Thank you Brittany for my very pretty siggy!

I'm so glad to hear that everything went well at your appt!! I can tell you without any doubt that renting a doppler was the best thing I did this whole pregnancy!!! It is the only thing that kept me sane in between appts. In the beginning I was going every week at the specialist but then when I went to every 4 weeks it felt like an eternity and I would have driven myself and my DH crazy so I rented it and it was WELL worth the $30 a month!!!! I still haven't sent it back and honestly think I might just keep it until the baby comes because when I have a freak out day it keeps me sane!!! I got mine from Babybeat also by the way and its great!

Congrats on a good doctors appointment!!! I have a doppler from babybeat, I got the cheapest one which is 24 per month because you can just count the hb, I didn't want to pay more for a digital display. Anyways my bean is still too wiggly to hear it, my doctor said in the next couple of weeks it won't have so much space in there and then I should be able to hear it, lol.

Yay!! I'm so glad you had a good appointment. What a relief for you. Hopefully the m/s will subside in the near future and you can start feeling better.
