Had a great appointment!

I had an appointment with my Doctor today, usually they wouldn't have put me in so quickly but I've been having really high blood pressure when I go to my appointments so they wanted to determine if I would be considered high risk. They took my vitals and blood pressure was normal, my pulse was high but I blame it on my long history of anxeity. I didn't expect to get an ultrasound but she gave me one! And I am happy to say my little bean is in the right spot with a nice healthy heartbeat! The baby isn't measuring as far along as I thought I was, about a week behind is what the dr said. Which kind of worries me because I know when I got my period but with a heartbeat of 160 bpm I don't think I have much to worry about, so I'm guessing I ovulated later than I thought. I have a picture, it isn't the best but I'll add the link :)

She's saying I'm measuring about 8 weeks and according to my LMP I'm supposed to be 9. She also mentioned that her equipment wasn't the best and it wasn't the vaginal ultrasound so I don't know if that would throw off the measurments at all. I have an appointment on the 25th for another ultrasound to help determine how far along I really am.

Yes it will be in radiology so hopefully I can get a really nice picture with their good equipment! It was definitely a relief seeing the little flutter of a heartbeat, it still seems so unreal that I have a living being inside of me!

Sounds like an awesome appt! I wouldn't worry about the date being off esp with a nice strong heartbeat!

I'm so jealous of all you girls getting U/S so early. My first one isn't until 12 weeks. I'm going to feel better when I can see the heartbeat!
