So a lot of it was talking getting my history and things like that. She listened for the heartbeat and couldn't hear it. That does make me a little worried but I'm sure things are fine. She said I could get an u/s or wait 2 weeks and she would try again. I guess my uterus is still hidden behind the pubic bone. So I haven't decided if I'm going to get the ultrasound or not. I've lost 6 lbs so far which she said is OK because I'm so sick. I was happy to find out that she would deliver a breech baby at home so if that problem happened I know I wouldn't have to get a section right away. So it was a good appt overall

It is still early to hear the heart beat! Maybe you should get the u/s for piece of mind?

Sounds like a great appointment! That is awesome about the breech delivery! I will have to ask my MW about that. I know with my last pregnancy my son was breech until 35 weeks and it was really stressful for me worrying about getting him to turn instead of having a section. So that is great that you have one less thing to worry about!!

Sounds like a great appointment. I'm sure not being able to hear the heartbeat was worrisome, but 10 weeks is early!! We've never heard the heartbeat before 11 weeks I think.

Glad you had a good appt

Definitely don't fret about the hb right now, 10 weeks is still early to hear. I was 12 weeks when I heard my first two boys and 11 and like 4 days when I heard my 3rd son.

My midwife wouldn't even check for the heartbeat until my 16 week appt. ( I had one at 11 weeks and then 16) I asked for an early u/s because I had had 2 losses and just needed the reassurance. If you're stressing - go for it. Its a nice non invasive way to check on things.
yeah for delivering breech! that's great!

Thank you Kiliki for my first beautiful Siggie!

I'm sure everything is fabulous.....My midwife said that the doplar she uses is less sensitive because it's also built to work under water...maybe yours is the same way.

We aren't to give a baby milk, berries, or peanut butter. We are to introduce new foods one at a time. But it's OK to inject several viruses, bacteria, aluminum, formaldehyde, phenoxyethanol, animal serum, mercury, squalene and more into an 8 week old? I don't think so.
In order to be healthy it is an unfortunate fact that people must be allowed the opportunity to be ill. I trust my body and those of my children to work correctly against the relatively benign diseases they vax for, and do not trust the ingredients in the vaccinations.
Our choice to not vax isn't based in ignorance, poverty, conspiracy theory and rumor. It's research, common sense, fact and evidence based..something the medical community has largely forgot about.
