I had my first "real" appointment today. One of the first things my dr did was try to find the heartbeat with the doppler. After a few minutes with no luck she said she would take me back for an ultrasound.....talk about panic attack!!!!! She did an abdominal u/s first and after a few minutes she said, "I don't see the heartbeat but I see the baby moving......let's do a vaginal." Well, I knew all must be well b/c I could see the baby moving around in there too so that was a big relief! Then when we did the vaginal u/s we saw the heartbeating, the baby's arms and legs moving around.......so cute!! We saw the baby crossing it's legs at one point and waving to us. My doctor sat and talked with me for awhile and gave me four pictures! She said she everything looks great, baby's measuring right on track and I can stop taking the progesterone if I want to. I'm kind of nervous about that but at the same time they make me so sick! When do people usually stop taking the progesterone? I think for the first time, I'm starting to feel good about this pregnancy and less nervous! Btw, I'm nine weeks. I can't figure out how to get a ticker on here.
