I've been in denial, but even the most severe denial knows that doctors appointments are an eventuality.. I went for my first yesterday at 10 weeks, 10 1/2 somewhere in there...I have an ultrasound next week to get the exact due date.
But.. the doctor didn't hear a heartbeat with doppler. He didn't seem too concerned, mentioned the doppler was old, but I am sure we heard a heartbeat around this age with my first daughter. I googled this to death *of course* and found that there were mixed responses, and that weight could impact...I am 40 pounds overweight, so I am holding on to the 'old doppler , fat tummy' hope...
I've had two children, and then two years ago when we were actually trying...I had 4 miscarriages and we gave up. None of those MC were accompanied by morning sickness as my live births were - I still have quite bad MS, and fatigue - I am holding onto this as well. Ultimately, we'll find out next week with an US, please cross your fingers for us. Although this is a surprise pregnancy I was starting to get my hopes up... I am starting to feel so burnt out by the emotions of this.
