Hurry up and wait

Nine weeks...

...has such a nice ring to it!

My next OB appt. is this Wednesday, and it feels like such a long wait until then. My latest fixation is the idea of a missed miscarriage, no heartbeat but the body hasn't quite caught on yet. So my first question will be when can I hear the heartbeat again--ultrasound, Doppler, I don't care. I know, I know, irrational, but there you have it. Oh, the joys of being on the cusp of 40 and pregnant for the first time...knowing full well all that can go wrong...

  1. I've heard of being able to detect the heartbeat on u/s as early as 5 1/2 - 6 weeks. I waited until 7 weeks for my u/s to be sure.

    Crossing my fingers for you for Wednesday.
