Why hello paranoia.

My 4 week checkup was scheduled for next week and we were to hear the heartbeat then. Somehow the lab had scheduled my first ob for today and when I called the nurse to cancel, she said just come on in today.

The appt went alright. All is well but he couldn't find the heartbeat with a Doppler. I am only 11 weeks and 6 days so this is supposed to be normal. But instead of getting to come in next week, the doctor just wants me in 4 weeks. So...I have to wait 4 WEEKS to make sure everything is aokay with the baby. So get used to paranoid Melissa and her tyrant woes about not hearing a heartbeat and having to wait 4 more weeks to hear it. 4 weeks. Motherf'er.

He did say the nausea makes him feel better because we know things are still moving along. I am glad he feels better, but this gal doesn't.

Oh well. Dammit.

  1. i don't think i heard the heartbeat until my 16 wk appt. i saw it beating at the 8 wk one. I hope the wait goes quickly!

  2. Well, try and look at it that if there was reason to worry- they would check.
