Dr's Appointment at 11 weeks 4 Day

Jun 20, 2011 - 14 comments

arrived at the Dr's office at 2:30 pm turns out he was in OR so had to wait for him until 4PM
had filled and emptied my bladder during this period 3 times lol finally he shows up at 4 takes his first 2 patients then me.
I entered the office really worried and fearful as always before ANY U/S ..
he asked a couple of questions on how my  symptoms r progressing and recommended some thing for the acid reflux I'v been having.  then he asked me to lay down on the bed for u/s. so the first thing he sees when the machine touches my skin was my full bladder of course "Ha, this is a really full bladder!" he I waited anxiously for him to mention the baby then 1 − 2 mins later he goes " look at ur baby!, he's such an active swirly 1, I usually wait for 10 − 15 mins until I c a movement" and ya this baby was moving like there's no tomorrow showing his back then turning and waving then flipping to the other was the vision of MY LIFE! couldn't believe my eyes..heartbeat was excellent and baby measured exactly where I am which is 11 weeks 4 days NOT 1 day! hehe ...

so I get up, clean up n stuff then the came the time where Dr asked me to stop the progesterone supplements I'm taking....I know its a good sign..but it feels as if I'm detaching my baby from my body..I'm still facing those insecurities and don't wanna go thru another loss after such a beautiful journey so far..
still, I was stuck with a smile for the rest of the day..every time I go in I imagine the Dr saying its over..but instead he's always said its excellent and that he's VERY happy with this baby.

I'm SO thankful to God and everything he's given me that I dont deserve..I'm blessed and feel so lucky ..
wish everyone would b as happy as I am.

Congrats! Yeah I remember my first u/s ....  So amazing...  I was terrified and it starts and the baby is floating like a dead man on the screen spread eagle... I was like uhhhhh then all of sudden like instant when it knew we were watching it starts moving... It did a full back flip at one point it was so amazing..  At my 2nd ultrasound, the poor baby did not have the room it did before so its movement were contained to little arm jabs and trying to stretch out the VERY VERY long legs.

Congrats to you!!! I'm so excited for you! Sounds like you are growing a healthy and strong little one. My DD was also an acrobat at all of her u/s performances :-).

When I stopped progesterone, my RE had me go from every day to every other day so it wasn't a sudden stop - maybe you could try that to ease your worry about suddenly stopping?

Thanks Jenna, actually my RE recommended that I cut the dose in half for three days and then have one every other day for the rest of the week. but I'm still panicking and can't control myself yet..did u bleed or have any spotting? my SIL is an OB she said i might get some spotting from the withdrawal of the progesterone..did this happen to u?

I agree it's scary - I did every other day from 8-10 weeks and stopped completely at 10 weeks - I was so worried, but I had no problems whatsoever! No spotting or anything, of course, I didn't have any spotting earlier in the pregnancy when I know it's really common for many women, so don't get overly worried if you spot a little. I'd say to just watch for any pink or red spotting, in which case I'd call the dr. right away, just in case. I hope you don't have any at all though!!
