Re: First Prenatal Apt.
Well, I am back from my apt. And I just want to say that I thought I was freaking out b4, little did I know I would be even more stressed out at the OB. When I got there, she said I should be 16 wks along, and when she did the internal, I only measured a 12 week old uterus. Then she couldn't find the h/b, even using 2 dopplers! That pretty much made my heart stop. I started balling my eyes out! She ordered an u/s to see if she could get the h/b through that. I had to wait an hour to get the u/s in which I was totally convinced that our little bean had died. When I finally got in there for the u/s, I started crying, and the tech said "honey don't cry, I have the h/b right here!" OMG! When I heard that I think I cried more than I was for the bad news! She told me to look at the screen, and there he/she was kicking his feet, and waving his arms! My husband and I broke down and cried. We got to keep the sonogram pic, which made me excited. I was so upset with that dr., I wanted to die. Here, she misinterpreted my edd. I am only 12 wks, which I totally knew, and tried to tell her in the beginning. I know that this is very early for me, and that anything could happen at any time, but it felt so good to see our little bean in there. I am still gonna take it one day at a time, and try not to stress, but until month 7-9, I am gonna worry. I appreciate all of your advice! Good luck to all of you ladies!
