First Appointment

We had our first appointment yesterday and it went "OK."

First, I had to do the typical "pee in a cup." The urine test came back positive and then they took me back to do some preliminary stuff (weight, blood pressure, etc.). Next, the nurse sent me to get Mr. SB and to go to the ultra sound waiting area. We waited and waited. After about an hour, it was our turn. I was so nervous, excited and anxious.

We go in and the tech does a normal ultra sound on my belly but couldn't find anything except for the sack. She then tells me we are going to do it vaginally. Again, still couldn't find the heart beat, but was able to find the sac and yolk sac (or babies back pack as the doctor called it). I cried and cried because I was so scared something was wrong. We were then sent to wait again to see the doctor and discuss what was going on. Dr. D. came in and explained that more than likely I am just a week earlier than what we originally thought. He assured me not to worry because we did see the sac and "baby's back-pack." Told me that I am right where I need to be and that I should come back next week to try to find the heart beat again.

After many tears and a lot of worrying, I have realized that this may all be due to the fact that this chart is CRAZY. Do you guys remember how many times I geared up to ovulate and didn't? Well, I think this explains what is going on. I ovulated a week late, which means baby was conceived a week late.

So, please keep us in your thoughts and prayers - we have a "re-do" next Tuesday at 1:15 PM.
Come on baby SB!!!!

I'm so sorry that you were so scared. It makes me even more glad that Mr. SB was able to go with you for this appointment. I think you and your doctor are right, your chart was super crazy and you are probably just not quite far along enough to see anything. I am praying for you and your sticky baby, and hoping that the nausea stays around for a little while for some reassurance. Can't wait to hear how this Tuesday's appointment goes. **hugs**
