Hi ladies,

Well I had my confirmation appointment today, and I ended up getting an ultrasound, which I did not want.  My doctor did the full physical exam and we happened to be in the ultrasound room.  She had trouble finding my uterus, which apparently has moved around since my last pregnancy.  Turns out it's retroverted and offset to the side somewhere!  Anyways, she couldn't really feel it so she did an abdominal ultrasound just so she could see where it's at.  I'm 6weeks 1 day along, and all she could see abdominally was a gest. sac and a yolk sac.  She said it looked fine and that's all we could expect to see abdominally at this point, but now of course I'm worried!  I know some people have seen heartbeats at this point, so now I'm nervous that we couldn't see the baby, even though I know this early on we'd probably have to go vaginal to see that.  Please tell me I'm just being irrational, or do I really have something to worry about?  Next appointment for the official ultrasound is in 2 weeks...

I just wanted to also say I'm stalking :smileywink: it sounds like everything is fine. I totally understand the worry though.
