I go back wed for another u/s and hopefully things are looking better by then! I hate the waiting.
Kate, I hope that next Weds. the u/s shows your precious little one! I've had early ultrasounds and I have mixed thoughts about them. Try to relax this weekend.

Re: 1st ultrasound

Kate--hope you get good news. So stressful.

I may have a 6wk u/s, because I have been having on and off spotting since 8dpo. Last pg all I had were a 11wk (NT screen) and the 20wk u/s. I prefer less u/s to more, but it would be nice to see that heartbeat after all the worry.

We'll see, I have to call the ObGyn on Monday. At some point I'll switch to only HB MW care, but at this point, I'll have care with an ObGyn and see what their protocol is. Seems like so many places its different when they start appts and when they do u/s. I'm also 35 though, so I expect they will push for me to do more testing/screening. I do plan to do the NT screen again, but don't think I'll agree to anything invasive like amnio or the other earlier one they do now.

Re: 1st ultrasound

I'm so sorry Kate! Praying that all is well with your little bean. I know it will be a long week for you, but I'll be thinking of you and hoping to hear good news from you next week.
