Had my first real OB appointment today (I'll be 10wks tomorrow). Everything went well and everything looks good!
After the oh-so-fun pap (yeah right!), we headed over to the portable u/s room, where I got to see our little munchkin. He/she was just hanging out, heart just beating away!
Unfortunately the other baby did not develop a heart beat. In fact, it was no longer even there. The Dr. said it's very likely that our baby with the hb was much stronger than the other and "stole" things away from the other one. It seems wrong and cruel, but...well...I suppose it's just natures way. My body did what it was supposed to do and absorbed the other one. It kind of makes you wonder how often something like that really happens, because most women don't get an ultrasound that early.
It's sad, but I'm SOOO thankful and happy to have atleast one healthy little one in there!
My OB told me that I could have a u/s everytime I come in for an appointment. Not a great u/s, but one with the portable u/s machine! As long as I can see the little squirt, I don't care what kind of u/s it is! He's obviously doing this for me to keep my mind at ease. He's a great guy!
Oh and my doppler came yesterday! I decided to buy one for my own peace of mind. I was surprised I was able to pick it up alreadngy!! It's so much fun and it's so comforting to know that I can check on him/her whenever I want. It's hard because you never know what's going on inside there, and if I can just get somewhat of an idea, it makes me feel a bit better.
