So I have my 12 week appointment on Friday and I am so nervous. They will attempt to find the heartbeat with the doppler. I wish it was Friday already.
I am just very scared that they won't be able to find the heartbeat. My DH thinks I am crazy, but if they can't find the heartbeat do you feel it is wrong to insist on an ultrasound?
My first pregnancy was a missed mc, where my old OB tried to find the heartbeat and couldn't and said that we would just try at my 16 week appointment. I started spotting about 2 weeks later, and my OB sent me for an ultrasound just to check and the baby had passed away at 9.5 weeks. I carried through to 14.5 weeks.
I'm just very nervous that this could happen again.
I would think with your history they would give you an ultrasound to verify and for peace of mind. Good luck and KUP! I hope the appt goes well. I too have my appt on Friday and I do remember hearing the heartbeat was an issue around this time on doppler for me anyways. I hope I can hear it too but I also know I still am having pregnancy symptoms. Good luck and hoping for a good appt for you!
I would absolutely request an US if they can't find a HB. Hope time speeds up for you and you have a wonderful appt on Fri!

I also hope that it doesn't even come up as a question, but if they can't find the hb I think you'd be perfectly reasonable to ask for an ultrasound. I'm so sorry about your previous loss!
(read my signature) I hear ya! Every appointment is full of anxiety and fear. Every time the heartbeat is found, you'll let out a breath of relief. Let me know what happened at the appointment.
