I just got back from an appointment at my OB office......i've never actually seen my doctor (i don't even think he's EVER in that office, EVER, NO exaggeration) so I see the nurse practitioner there.
I really disliked her last time. I declined the AFP and she pressured me and basically treated me like an idiot. *rolls eyes*
so anyways, I'm 10 weeks and I just went in to hear the baby's heartbeat today. she couldn't find it. why they don't have an ultrasound machine IN the room is beyond me...i've never been to an office that didn't have one, but i guess thats just me being spoiled. :P
she was saying that the uterus is too deep to hear the heartbeat still............but.....i can feel my uterus when i lay down. it doesn't pop out the way it will in a few weeks or so, but i can definitely feel it. i can feel the top of it where it ends and i've felt it for weeks...growing....and i'm pretty sure bladders don't steadily grow over the course of weeks.
TMI but i was doing it with my boyfriend (lol@terminology) and my uterus got a little hard and DID protrude enough for us to BOTH feel it. o_O
she insisted that i am NOT feeling my uterus, there is no way.
i told her, since apparently she is unaware, that i'm not an idiot and i've been pregnant more than once before.....i know what i'm feeling!
she didn't feel for it, of course, besides jabbing her hand into my pelvis....aren't you supposed to feel above where its expected, for the ridge? and then continue down until you actually feel it?! i mean, thats how its always been done on me, i assume because you don't want to be shoving your hand hard into the uterus like that.
anyways, she was just pressing on it, but not really feeling it, if that makes sense?
i feel like thats why she couldn't find the heartbeat, she had the doppler thing on my pelvic bone almost the whole time!
anyways, am i wrong for being irritated?
should she have been able to hear the baby's heartbeat with the doppler today, at 10 weeks?
