No Reassurance...

No Fetal Heart check, no ultra sound, nope nothing of that sort was done yesterday.  Just a history, blood pressure check, and urine analysis.  Little bit of comfort though.  My OB, Dr. S said he didn't want to use the Doppler because he can only find the heart beat about 50% of the time before 12 weeks.  He asked me if I would like him to try though and I said no.  I am already anxious enough that if he doesn't find the heart beat I would totally feel like it is over.

Dr.S thinks what happened yesterday morning is nothing to worry about.  My body is working really hard right now and odd things are going to happen.  He would have been concerned if I was crampy or there was fresh blood.  Neither has happened in awhile.  I told him I know I have no real reason to be as scared as we are but...  He promptly cut me off and said "no I think you do...look at what you've gone through to get here!"  But he did reassure me that he will try to keep me as relaxed and calm as possible.  I am to continue only working part time.  No mall walking, no gym time, nothing exciting.  Just me and my couch and my three monkeys! 

I feel a little bit better today.  And that's mainly because I had no more weird pop and gush things happen.  I have more to write about concerning the appointment yesterday, but I'm tired and my mind is a little all over the place.  So I'm out!

Much Love

Hey KS, my doc has a doppler thing too. He said we MAY be able to get a reading after 10 weeks pg. So try not to sweat it. Easier said than done. Take care...

I know it wasn't quite the level of reassurance that you wanted, but it does sound like your doctor was able to give you some comfort. I also like the fact that he recognized that you had every right to be freaked out. You've been through a lot!! Hang in there and try to do what you can to relax (I know! Easier said than done.)
