Okay, so I posted in the possible miscarriage forum, for advise and support.

NOW I'M SO EXCITED that I can post here!!

Last September I miscarried at 9 weeks, I had a great doctor, who unfortantly was not in my network.

So this year when I found out in January that we were pregnant, I was extatic, but sad because I knew I had to find a new doctor! My sister-in-law is pregnant, and so i decided to go to her doctor. I called for an appointment planning to schedule around Feb. 28th, and the lady told me no, that I needed to go in the next week (Feb. 6th)

So, okay, I go in. The doctor meets me in her office and immediatly starts talking to be about downs syndrom, scolosis, and other birth defects. This is all kind of much, I just came to see my baby. She also is talking fast, and I'm so confused, she wont slow down or explain anything. So whatever, we go do the ultrasound (woohoo! right?) WRONG! She tells me she doesn't know whether I am having a miscarriage, an ectopic pregnancy, or a normal pregnancy. She was telling me that my dates were WAY off, which I knew they weren't because I was tracking them! She said if it is a viable pregnancy I am only 3-4 weeks. So I'm laying there freaking out and she's just jabbing away with the VU machine. OUCH! She sends me for bloodwork and says she'll call me the next day.

The next day (Feb 7th) I get a call at work from my doctors office saying that I need to go for an emergency ultrasound because my HCG levels are too high and I'm having an ectopic pregnancy. I called my fiancee in tears to meet me up at the hospital for my ultrasound. They did the test, and I was sent back to my doctors office for the results. She came into the office and told me that I was in the middle of a miscarriage, and wanted to immediatly start me on suppositories to make me start cramping to get rid of the tissues. Then she said quietly "but it could still be a viable baby" She said that I could go back on Monday the 11th to get them.

Later that night, I was talking to my fiancee, and I was telling him that I did not feel like I was having a miscarriage, and that's when I found this website, and found hope! So I scheduled an appointment with a NEW doctor for today, the 22nd. But I got a letter in the mail from my old doctor Wednesday night, the 20th. It said that I had an infection, and that I could be having an ectopic pregnancy or a miscarriage, which had me and my fiancee worried. So I called the new doctor and they squeezed me in for the 21st. When we did the ultrasound, he found an 7 week 6 day old baby!

:)8 :)8 :)8 :)8 I almost cried, I was so happy! THANK YOU GUYS! For all your prayers and giving me hope! E> E> E>

Charmed, I'll definatly keep you in my prayers...

Sorry it took so long for an update, I've been busy moving! But I was on appointments every week, then he moved it to every two weeks, and my last appointment was on Thursday, I am 10 weeks today, we heard the heartbeat at 166bpm! Now I am every 4 weeks! I'm getting more and more excited and relieved and I'm so happy! I have this website to thank, because had I not found it, and found that there still might have been hope, I don't know what I would have done!! So I just wanted to say:

THANK YOU ALL!
