15 week appt today and nervous still

why is it every time it comes to appointment day, I get increasingly nervous that something is wrong? I'm 15 weeks and everything seems to be going fine, but I just am freaked out that they won't hear the HB today.

Good luck at your appointment!...Well it probably already happened.
My 15-week appt is on the 24 and I KNOW I will be the same way...
How did your appointment go??

Everything went great! It was a totally normal "boring" appointment! We heard the hb (after what seemed like FOREVER of the Dr trying to find it on doppler - was probably only 1 minute, but felt like 5) and it was a strong 162! I also gained 5 lbs, which is great because I gained back what I lost in 1st tri so everything is right on track! I was crying over my cheeseburger (literally) after with dh because I was so relieved!


Anyway, our next appt is 3/8 and we have the big anatomy scan! I can't wait to find out what our little bean is.

Hooray for a great appointment! I think they do get less nerve-wracking as you go along... and fortunately they get closer together, too! :) It also helps once you start to feel movement... I know with Tira, whenever I was nervous, I would eat something sugary and lie in one of the positions she always seemed to move in. I'm looking forward to when I start to feel this one move!

That is awesome that you will be getting to hear the hb every 2 weeks!

I just wanted to let you know that I totally understand what you're saying.
