Is Anyone Scared About Their First Appt.........?

in particular, not hearing the heartbeat? Sorry for the paranoia. I certainly don't want to bring the board down, but I had a m/c this past spring at 10 weeks and I'm just fearing the worst. I'm happy about going, but I'm going to be so nervous about the heart beat thing. ugh!

YES. It's in 1 hour and 45 mins and I'm freaking. No matter what happens, I have to come back to work after. And I have a mandatory meeting form 5pm -7pm tonight. If there's no heartbeat I don't know what I'm going to do. I've had 2 losses this year, so I know where you're coming from. When is your appointment? Hugs to you.

I don't have my first appt. until the end of November-the 30th to be exact-.. I will be 10 weeks then & yes, I do get nervous about the heartbeat, too!

When I started spotting at 11-weeks with my last pregnancy we couldn't pickup a heartbeat, an u/s confirmed she was still kickin in there, but the doppler couldn't pick up her beat until 13-weeks, which my MW said was normal. So don't freak out too soon!
Personally, I'm not too worried, but I will say this, I don't enjoy blood tests, paperwork, or peeing in tiny impossible-to-hit dixie cups.

I know..I am convinced the blood work will come back funny, which is what happened with my last MC.

My appt is on Wednesday. Woohoo. I am going to go ahead and do the early ultrasound even though I wasn't going to originally. Peice of mind is worth it sometimes. I just won't do the 20 week one, we don't want to know the sex anyway.
