I'm a mess of nerves right now. I've been totally fine up until today. I'm so worried that there won't be anything to see, or that there won't be a heartbeat, just so much fear that I can't seem to squash. I don't have any reason to think I've lost this baby, but maybe b/c I've lost before I can't shake the doubt. Just needing some hugs & good vibes for tomorrow if ya'll don't mind. ::

Update: Well the appointment was just wonderful!!! We have a bouncing, waving, beautiful Peanut to bring home in late August I'm measuring 9wks 4days, so that makes my new due date August 30th which is neat b/c my sons were born on the 30th in October & July, so it's just meant to be. The OB did say that they would schedule my c-section for a week ahead of that, so we'll see how that goes. I think I'll go into hiding and appear at the hospital when I'm ready to push But I wanted to thank you all for sending us hugs and support, it was well received and I know made a difference, gotta love that positive energy!!! Wishing you guys all the best

I know it can be nervewracking but I'll bet your baby is just fine. I'm hoping you see a strong, healthy baby and are able to put your fears to rest.

I felt the same way b/f my appointment and even took another test just to make sure I was still prego. Just relax and wait. Easier said than done.

I wouldn't worry. Worrying won't make the outcome any different. I had a mc in October and then got pregnant the next month. I was nervous in the beginning but then I decided it wasn't worth the anxiety. At then at 9 weeks I got to hear 2 heartbeats. I'm sure all is good

I felt the same way before my ultrasound last week. I was very, very anxious. Can you have someone come along for moral support?

That's what made me so mad about the nerves. I resolved myself to the fact that it's all out of my control, so no stressing - well that went right out the window

Probably DH will go with me. And DS3, too and he should prove to be a good distraction waiting in the office

Hang in there!! I totally understand your feelings. I had an u/s at 6 wks and will have another on Monday. I am terrified that something bad happened since the last u/s. I'm just trying to keep busy & distracted.

Will check back to see how it goes for you tomorrow!

I'm Deborah, mama to Aidan, 11/02, Sean, 9/04 (my T21 SuperBoy), and Eleanor, 8/08.
