Whatever the case, I'm sending good u/s vibes your way!
I know its probably fine and nothing is wrong, but I'm definately glad I'm getting the US done-waiting 4 weeks would drive me nuts.
Oh also, she said I'm measuring right on for 13-14 weeks, which is reassuring.
The fact that you couldn't hear anything could be reassuring kwim? Maybe the doppler was broken...like you said, you always hear your own pulse, etc. so something had to be off, you know?? eta: and you are obviously alive even though you didn't hear your own sounds.

Waiting on my SunshineBaby
They tried to hear mine at 12 weeks, and it took forever, and I still never heard it. The midwife eventually said she heard it way in the back (behind the placenta), but I still didn't hear anything, and it took two of them to try. I've heard both other babies at 10 weeks, so it freaked me out to be waiting that long.
This waiting space is so tricky. I hope the ultrasound brings good things.
As soon as the US tech put the thingie on my belly, we saw the baby waving. We saw the heart a little bit later, but obviously baby was fine since she was squirming. And no, I have no idea if its a she, the tech said she wont even check at this point cause its not accurate, I just keep calling it a she, lol.
No idea why we couldnt hear anything though. My placenta isnt anterior and my uterus is well above my pelvis. I guess she's just good at hiding! Everything looked fine though and the US confirmed what I thought to begin with-that I was right and that OB was wrong, so hahahaha! neener neener! (I'm mature!) Baby measured 13 weeks and 1 day and I was 13 weeks and 3 days so pretty darned close.
They gave us lots of pics, I posted the nicer ones on my flickr, along with a small video clip. Its here if anyone wants to see: http://www.flickr.com/photos/36597415@N03/
