    2nd appointment and U/S
    Mom2Emma23 posted:
    Well I had my 2nd u/s yesterday to help date me again and just to check on baby. It looks like I am 8 weeks, 1 day, due 1/24/13. The baby looked actually looked like a real little baby : ) Heartbeat was 176. I am getting more excited but still nervous. I know high heart beats are typical for this far along but my daughter who I lost always had a really high heart beat and it turned out her heart was over compensating (half was not functioning). So of course thoughts cross my mind. I have another appointment on 7/12, can't wait!

    So glad it was a good u/s! Yeah for seeing your bean and a good hb! I know how hard it is to not worry about things like that, even if they were a "fluke" with that baby. (((Hugs))) and calming vibes!
    Mandy_Smiles responded:
    Yay for a great appt! Try and relax, I know it's impossible to rid your mind of all of the "what if's" but just try and hold onto the fact that the HB is within normal range. I'm happy that you were able to see your little peanut! Yay for a great appointment!
