My Ultrasound and Appt...

I am so nervous... Haven't had morning sickness at all but this morning I cannot stay out of the bathroom due to my nerves. My first miscarriage was discovered at the 1st U/S appt, so, my nerves are a mess right now. My old OB knew that this was a tender spot for me, but 1st appt with new OB today, crossing my fingers it goes well.

BTW cutest thing ever last night- SO said he was going to shave and get his hair cut (FINALLY I might add lol) because he wanted to make a good first impression with the baby... awwww

The Ultrasound was scary, as expected. I am measuring 5 weeks and 3 days. They said that they could not see a heartbeat, but not to be alarmed because it is still too early. I have another U/S scheduled for April 30th, and I am giong to have anxiety until then!
My blood pressure was through the roof compared to normal(my normal is 90/65. Today it was 142/80, he said it was possibly due to my anxiety from the U/S, crossing my fingers thats all it was. It was a 2 hour appt due to it being a high risk Dr, question after question that seemed like it had nothing to do with the baby, but answered them all the best I could!!
He tested my Progest. levels and my HCG again to make sure things are still progressing, but overall the sac and yolk looked healthy! Crossing my fingers for sticky dust, Im scared I got my hopes up to high after that BFP!!!

Thank you for everyones thoughts and prayers!!

Good luck! I totally feel your anxiety and understand the nervous tummy. I have to wait until May 3 (tried to get in sooner) and it's killing me. I have a lot of anxiety too.

I have had 2 appts. so far and I was super nervous each time lol. good luck today! btw. I think it's funny your SO wants to cut his hair. my husband had veryyy long hair and he shaved his head the other day so he "looked the daddy part" it was so cute.

Hope your appt made you feel a little more relaxed. I am feeling anxious too. Glad that what you were able to see looked on track.

I am ALL to familiar with how scary that ultrasound can be, but aside from your blood pressure, it sounds like a great appointment. The yolk sac and all looked healthy and that is super! I was told that the heartbeat is undetectable before 5w6d. It can be seen at 5w6d sometimes, but rarely can be heard. so 5w3d you wouldn't even see a little teeny flicker yet. Im glad its going well for you so far....congrats!!
