Today I had my 2nd OB appt and it went well and quick! Once Dr. F came in I was there only about 5 min. The other 25 min I took a lil nap while I waited for her. lol. She went over my US results from Sept 2, which I already knew of so nothing new there. All my blood tests were negative. So I don't have STDs or AIDS. I guess my BP was lower than the last time. No big surprise there. And I have lost a little weight. I'm down to 106 lbs from 109 lbs. Also no big surprise there.
She tried out the doppler and was able to find the heartbeat! How cool! It was about 180 bpm and music to my ears. My next appt will be Oct 16.
I had my 1st US on Sept 2 and it went pretty well. I got a couple pics of my lil baby but the lil squirt is really close to the uterine wall so it's hard to see. My US showed that my baby is actually a week behind so instead of being 8 weeks today, I am really 7 weeks. No big deal. My due date is now April 24.
I was a little worried at first. I thought maybe the baby wasn't growing and I was going to have a miscarriage but I've been reassured by some ladies that it doesn't seem likely. My baby's heart rate was 103 on the scan and it was beating good! I think maybe Dr. F might order another US to make sure everything is still on track but I haven't heard yet.
