Hating the waiting

So this is the first week I did not have an ultrasound. I am not handling the not knowing well. I think I have found the baby's heartbeat a couple of times with the doppler but not in the last two days. I am starting to feel really worried even though I know it is early. My next ultrasound is Thursday. My mother-in-law is coming in from Florida tomorrow for my son's birthday and is planning on going to the ultrasound with me. My biggest fear is that I will get the worst news with her and my mother there. I just wish there was a way to know...

Hey, you're getting close to the 2nd trimester, right? I'll bet everything is ok. You can take comfort in the fact that the farther along you are, the less likely you are to miscarry. At least, that's what I've been reading as I compulsively look up miscarriage stats, hoping that I can be on the good side of the numbers for a change.

I know I will want to buy one of those home dopplar gadgets if this thing works out, (and use it EVERY day!). How soon do they work, and where and what kind did you buy?

my next u/s isn't until 18 weeks. I have a LOOOOOONG way to go. Its frustrating and scary. I've found the baby's heart beat with the doppler every day, except today. I spent over 30 minutes looking for that little one. When I finally found it, I about lost it.

Pregnancy post loss is so hard!
