Every month right before my appointment, I get nervous and a bit scared. Well, my big appointment is Thursday - 20 weeks where they do the big ultrasound i.e, check all the organs, heart etc.
We've been trying for 6 years to get pg and lost a pg 2 years ago. So, were really anxious about this pg.
We've had 3 ultrasounds already - the Dr. is a friend of ours and knows our history- and on each one everything is great. We've seen and heard the heart beat. I've recently heard of horror stories where they couldn't find the heartbeat. My question is: once you have heard/seen the heartbeat, what are the chances of something being wrong after that? Does that make sense?
We have one of those dopplers from Wal Mart that we use every night. It has gotten really easy to hear - what we think - is the heart beat. Does anyone else have this doppler? What is your experience w/ it? The sound we think is the heartbeat sounds like a horse trotting - really fast. I don't know what else it could be. Could we be mistaking it for something else?
I appreciate any information.
