I found out today that the practice I'm going to doesn't do an ultrasound until the anatomy scan and my upcoming appointment will probably be too soon to hear a heartbeat on a Doppler. Given my spotting and previous missed miscarriage, it was really stressing me out to think I wouldn't be seeing or hearing a heartbeat until 13 weeks. I really hate to be demanding but it is stressing me out enough that DH noticed and told me I needed to do something about it. (Though he also sent me flowers at work today cause he knew I was upset which was super sweet of him!) I hadn't called the ob/midwife practice because at my confirmation appointment the NP told me just to call if I had bleeding like a period. I called today though and told them about my concerns and they scheduled me for an appointment on Tuesday so hopefully I'll see a nice heartbeat and I can stop worrying.

I'm glad they got you in! I need to call my new practice and see if I'm getting an ultrasound. I haven't had any spotting or anything, but I'm going crazy, so I NEED one.

Here's hoping for a beautiful strong heartbeat for you on Tuesday!

They would've gotten me in today but apparently they were short someone today. They told me to call tonight to see if there were any cancellations for Monday but I'm fine with Tuesday. My regular appointment isn't until May 8th so I'm glad they were willing to see me earlier to check for a heartbeat.

I totally understand the stress and worry that goes along with this early stage. I have had 2 losses that were discovered at ultrasound and I am absolutely terrified. I so badly want one, but I don't want one at all out of fear. I am waiting until 8 weeks so there will be no confusion. By 8 weeks, there will be a heart beat (God willing) and baby should measure appropriately. Since you will be 8 weeks by then, this should be perfect.
I am glad you spoke up and got an appointment. I pray for you to hear a nice strong rhythm!! It will be great I am sure!
