Appt. Update!

Just returned from my 2nd appt with the OB. She did another u/s and what a difference 4 weeks makes! There is definitely a baby! Heart was beating away but I have no idea how fast as she didn't mention/check. It had 1 hand up to it's mouth, so sweet! She looked at the nuchal fold and said it looked normal, not thick.

I'm scheduled to have a CVS a week from today. I'm hoping they'll be able to do it but she did mention my uterus was tilted. Maybe that's why I had a hard time hearing the hb on the rented Doppler last week.

Baby measured at 10w4d and today I am 10w2d.

One hurdle down, another to go...

Congrats! I am happy to hear that you are doing well. I love the name Ryder! It sounds like you have a lot of fun projects lined up and the rest of your time will most likely FLY by. I am looking forward to being a boy Mama as well - trains, sports, Matchbox cars. Bring it on! :smileyhappy: DD is 7 and is really looking forward to becoming a big sister.

I'm on weekly appointments now. Because I am really, really AMA (turned 44 in Dec.), my OB wants weekly NST until delivery. I will be a RCS

Probably true about the 35 and older pregnancy board but surprisingly there are several women 40+ over there too :smileyhappy:

Congrats on your great appointment! I have a tilted uterus too and it can make hearing the heartbeat more difficult in the beginning. I had alot of round ligament stretching pain because of it in the first trimester...all is better now. I hope that your next appointment goes well for you. Seeing the little one with hands to the face makes it oh so real doesn't it?

I think the new format is offputting for some ladies. The over 35 board may have more activity because...well...more ladies are BFP in that range.
