The 2 week wait
Now that I'm pregnant, I still can't get away from the 2 week wait. Every 2 weeks I get an u/s. Which means that I feel great for about 3 days after the good results, then stress out for the remaining 9 or 10 days til the next one. I'm really freaking out about the wait I'm in right now. The next u/s is on the 30th and I will be 12 1/2 weeks at that point. I just need time to fly by til then and let this 1st trimester be over. I've had pink throughout this pregnancy after doing the deed and after doing bathroom business - sorry for the t.m.i. I've had it a few times over past few days and I just need some reassurance. So today, I rented a fetal doppler system so that I can start to listen to lefty's ticker from home. I even next dayed it, and it will arrive tomorrow as Lefty turns 11 weeks. Now I'm hoping that I can actually pick up something on it this early. All the info says I should be able to hear it sometime between 8 to 12 weeks, but I'm not sure. Anyone had sucess with these things? And how far along were you when you could start hearing things?
