Hi Brie! I feel like we've been leading parallel lives...I will be 5 weeks on Friday (I think) and i had a d&c on Sept 2 at about 9 weeks after finding out I had a blighted ovum. So, I too, am really nervous about being pregnant again. I am anxious to get that first u/s and make sure everything looks ok. I feel a lot more disconnected with this pregnancy than I did before in my other pregnancies (I have a 2 and a 4 year old)...hopefully we'll all be here through August

Sounds like we are a mirror of each other right now! My miscarriage was due to a blighted ovum, diagnosed at 8 weeks, and then thankfully (but painfully) my body miscarried naturally a week later. Sounds like we are due a day apart if my dates are correct.

My appointment isn't until the 16th - I 'll be 7 weeks. My dr's office doesn't do u/s during regular appointments, they only have a tech there after hours on certain days. Soooo, even though I have an appointment date, I don't know when we will get to actually see the baby, which is the only way I can be reassured, KWIM? Hopefully by Christmas we can see the bean and a healthy heartbeat so we can tell our families!

My first appointment is 12/20 with the nurse practitioner...I'll be almost 7.5 weeks then, but then a week or so after that I come back to see the doc and they do a u/s in the office. I'm trying to not think about it too much... I'm so nervous that it will just be just like last time...ugh...I'm just trying to take it a day at a time...I keep taking pregnancy tests every couple days, not that they even mean anything...but seeing the 2 lines makes me feel better for some reason. I'm hoping maybe I can convince the NP to do a quick u/s, but I'm not sure what she's allowed to do...I just want to see something going on in there!
