I had my first midwife appt on Thursday. I had no idea of my LMP but we talked about possibilities and symptoms (I had felt movements already) and she felt my uterus and said I could be as far as about 17 weeks along - putting me due at the end of July. (If you didn't see my intro post, this was an unexpected pregnancy!)

Anyway, after that she tried to find the heartbeat with the doppler and could not find it. So we decided on an ultrasound, which is scheduled for tomorrow. I definitely FEEL pregnant. I did have one miscarriage before and had no pregnancy symptoms, so I will be surprised if this pregnancy is not viable. But of course I am still nervous right now, as this has already been a rollercoaster of emotions - we were done having kids, but have accepted and starting to get excited about this "one more". Then not knowing how far along I was, possibly skipping the whole first trimester (!) and then finally not finding the heartbeat, it has just been really stressful.

So if you have any spare good vibes to send my way for tomorrow, I'd appreciate it! redface.gif

Tons of positive vibes headed your way!  What time is your ultrasound?  Mine is at 8:45 EST.  Like you, this is an unexpected pregnancy and I have no idea how far along I am, so I'm really anxious about tomorrow.  This has been the longest day ever.

Thanks everyone!

Just returned from my ultrasound and my peanut is in there doing fine, heart beating away. The measurements put me at 10 weeks, which is much earlier than I thought I was, and explains why we couldn't find it with the doppler. So I am very relieved and happy with the results smile.gif Thanks for all the good vibes! joy.gif
