12 Week Appointment

Today Jer and I headed to the Dr for our 12 week appointment. I was worried about it. I had nightmares all night that we couldn’t find a heart beat this time and had to have a D&C. It didn’t help that this weekend I started to have some bleeding, yucky discharge (sorry way TMI but it’s a pregnancy blog so get used to it) and started to have a horrible yeast infection. So I wasn’t feeling totally perky to begin with.

The first thing they always do is take your weight. I’ve lost 5 pounds and so I was worried that was a bad sign. The Doctor started by trying to hear the heartbeat for the first time. After a minute or so when he couldn’t find it he decided to just do an ultra sound. He said with my history he wasn’t going to play around all day, he wanted to make sure things were ok. It was our first external Ultrasound (HAPPY DAYS!) and little Uno was bouncing around all happy. We immediately knew everything was ok and once he knew right where the baby was he was able to find the heartbeat for us to listen to. I can not even tell you how this made us feel. WE HEARD IT!! That puts our miscarriage risks down to 2%. We know there are still 6 months left to worry about, but for us this is amazing.
