I'm getting concurrent care through this pregnancy so this week was my NP appt. She palpated and all felt good, my urine tests turned out fine (no signs of UTI/kidney infection as suspected) and then the doppler was whipped out.
She tried finding a heartbeat but couldn't (but could hear baby moving presumably away from the doppler).
I wasn't terribly worried (when I saw an OB for the possib. UTI she found the HB on doppler at 150 bpm), but the NP wanted to take a peak w/the U/S. There was baby, being quite active and then the HB was found at 148 bpm.
She did a quick head to rear measurement which estimated me closer to 14 weeks (according to my dates I'm about 16 weeks).
I'm pretty sure of my dates but it just got me a little worried (even though the NP said all looks well). Has anyone else measured small in the 2nd trimester?
I have my MW appt next week (my 1st, FINALLY) so i'll be interested to hear what she discovers w/her palpation skills.
After that the 20 wk U/S is sched. in mid Feb. I'm not too keen on heavy amounts of U/S but I must say I can't wait for the 20 wk one. We won't be finding out the sex but I just love that sneak peak you get.
