I had a prenatal visit with my OB's practicing partner today. She was very nice, but the first news I got was that they didn't have my blood test results for my nuchal. I was VERY disappointed. Even though I'll be able to get them tomorrow..
Then neither the med student NOR the doctor could find the fetal heartbeat. Of course it made me nervous, but I said it was okay. The doctor disagreed, though, and took me into the ultrasound suite. She found the baby (who was moving around, flipping, dancing, kicking).. and she replaced the ultrasound wand with the doppler.. but still couldn't get the heartbeat. She tried with the ultrasound again.. then the doppler again.. and THERE it was. 160!
But all the stuff that happened this morning stressed me out. I actually had to sit in my car and cry for five minutes before I went into work to try to calm down! Hormones make me crazy. I'll call in the morning for the blood test results. My next appointment is on the 27th, at which time I will schedule my anatomy scan!
