Appt tomorrow

Postby lbabydustw » Tue Jun 29, 2010 7:31 am

I have an appt. tomorrow 6/30 for an annual but I am going to make sure that I get some kind of confirmation of how this PG is going. I am in my 10th week but after having a MMC in dec I can't jus assume everything is OK anymore. I am REALLY nervous!

I totally understand how you are feeling. I have an apt tom for my first ultra sound. I had a missed m/c as well a year ago. I am so nervous. Did your Dr give you much info about mmc? My Dr never even told us that is what is was I just did my research. I guess I am desperate for some reassurance that they are uncommon and rarely happen twice....I also had 3 chemicals in the last 3 1/2 yrs. ( I also have 3 beautiful children from my first marriage ).
I am on blood thinner injections and progesterone since the day after my bfp so I am happy with the new fertility Dr and feel he is giving us great care just wish he had not me wait so long for the first ultra sound...

I hope your apt goes well and they give you some reassurance.

Thanks Kel! I hope all goes well at your U/S tomorrow. I do not think I am scheduled for an U/S but if they can't find the HB with the doppler I am going to request one.

I have been wondering that about MMC's. What are the chances of having 2????? I really haven't had many symptoms either so I dont' have that reassurance.

GL to you tomorrow. I will be looking for your update!

From what I have read they are caused by a chromosonal defect. I really don't understand it all but it does sound like the chances of having it happen again are slim. It makes me feel better to think that .....
I know that if all goes well with the ultra sound tom I really want to buy one of those home dopplers if I cannot check for the babies heartbeat it will be a long and torturous pregnancy....I promised dh if everything looks great tom I will try to relax a little 8O

I am in the same boat. I am waiting for my U/S tomorrow before I buy a doppler.

you can rent a doppler. That is what I am going to do and with you being at 10 weeks you should be able to find the heartbeat. GL at your appt! FX!!
I am ttcnumber4 from the other side it made me change my name on this side. We were in a few threads together over there :)

ttc4-YAY! I'm so glad to see you over here. I had no idea it was you. What a pain that you had to change your name. :?

I was thinking about renting one but I wasn't sure of cost versus benefit. I know I am already 10 weeks and provided every thing goes well I will probably only use it for about 2 months but then again we do want a least 2 kids. I guess I will weigh all of that our tomorrow depending on how our visit goes. I will be 10w 2d tomorrow but at my U/S they said I was measuring 3 days ahead. I am hoping that is enough for the doc to find the HB on the office doppler but if not I am prepared to BEG for an U/S.

When is your first appt?

Totally know how you feel! I hope your doctor is cool about it. I actually have an appointment tomorrow too. I've already seen the heartbeat, but I can't help but be nervous to see it again. I've been sicker than sick though, so I'm hoping that's a good sign! What time is your appointment? Update us on the January board when you get back!

I've never used a doppler at home before, but I went ahead and bought one this week. I got a great deal on Amazon, it's a Sonoline B, listed for $99 I think, but reduced to $55 with free gel and free shipping. Definitely worth it to buy compared to renting. Should be here this week, I can't wait to have it. It'll either make calm my nerves or make me more insane, we shall see! LOL

Good luck tomorrow!

Appt went really well! We heard the heartbeat on the office doppler, it was a beautiful 177.

Laura,
YAY for a great appt! what a relief! My appt is next Friday for the confirmation u/s to make sure everything is going good. I am praying it is! I have faith but I get soo nervous about it. I have had some cramping today and I am freaking out! I know it is normal because everything is strectching but with having three losses I just worry too much! I am going to get a doppler too but not sure if I am going to buy or rent probably buy if they are cheap enough.
