nervous about.... Moon*Siren 3 kids; 3 angel babies; Williamstown, Kentucky 2136 posts

my prenatal appt tomorrow, its my 2nd checkup and the first one didn't go to well they couldn't find the heartbeat so I was sent for an ultrasound the baby was fine, I'm nervous and scared because I'm afraid the same thing is gonna happen I just want to hear my baby's heartbeat. they also told me the first appt that my uterus was tilted and they could feel it because of my stomach muscles (I was not tensing at all) so don't know why that is. does anyone know if a tilted uterus could interfere with them finding the heartbeat or me feeling the baby move all the time? this is my 3rd and my uterus was not tilted with my other 2.

From what I understand...yes, it could prevent you from hearing the heartbeat.



I'm sure everything will be ok!

I have a tilted uterus also. With my first baby the same thing happened, where they couldn't find the heart beat, scare the shit outta you, then find it on ultrasound. Its a lot harder to find if you have a tilted uterus..

thats what I thought and yea i was crying all the way to the hospital to get my ultrasound lol, I had two miscarriages so I was worried it was that. I just wonder why my stomach muscles was so tight, the midwife asked me if i did alot of sit ups I said no that I walk alot and I use to take gymnastics and martial arts, she said it felt like I had a really toned stomach lol.

LOL, lifting kids all day is a def workout! I would have been freaking out too if I would have had to go to a dif place to have the ultrasound. I lucked out and just had to walk down like 2 doors in the same office I was in when they couldn't find it with a doppler. I would just try to take comfort in the fact that they DID find the heart beat in your lil one the last time you went. After hearing the heart beat, supposedly the chances of something going wrong decreases. A doppler isn't nearly as sensitive as an ultrasound for finding heart beats. I would "try" not to worry.(Its hard not to, I know!)

yes it is a workout lol. I was freaking out it was 30 mins away I seemed like it took forever to get there. And that is true maybe I'm just stressing myself out again for no reason I'm such a worrier, my parents have always told me I was and now my hubby tells me lol.

lol my hubby don't yell at me for it he knows I'm over cautious, guess thats why he doesn't worry about me as often unless I have an asthma attack then he freaks.

I have any pains that make me kinda I guess "scream" ouch, he freaks. He'll ask if I'm okay. The other day when we found out I'm allergic to some shellfish he wouldn't leave me alone until I finally passed out from the Benadryl, even though I know he come in there a few times to make sure I was breathing. He wanted me to lay on the couch, but no way was I going to get comfy on the couch with my back hurting the way it was. I told him this morning about the pain I was in when I first woke up. "Well, you ARE pregnant baby" lol if I don't wake him UP hurting, he don't say anything really. But I let him know of any pains. And anytime I go to pick up Daniel, even Daniel goes "You're not supposed to be picking me up, mama." (though I just pick him up "Bridal Style" and take him to the room lol

awe thats sweet, my hubby worries if I have something really wrong but no with pain, I have fibromyalgia so he knows it comes with the disease. but if anything out of the norm happens he is right there with me.

yeah, I know what you mean. If I start hurting like I have fibromyalgia, he immediately gives me Tylenol... because that means I have fever. (only time it ever HURTS for anyone or anything, even blanket, to touch me...) At laest, that's about the best way I could put how it feels, from what other's have described fibromyalgia as feeling.
