I am so so so happy!!! I am surprised you graduated from the RE already! WE were kept until 11 weeks.
Glad you have an OB appointment already. Let them know up front about your loss history and see if you can get extra appointments to ease your mind. Our clinic let me come in weekly just for a quick heartbeat check to reassure me. They were so understanding and supportive.
I also graduated from the RE at that point, which was nerve wracking but also such an amazing milestone. I'm glad you don't have to wait long for your next appointment.
It is so terrifying and confusing because it feels like everyone else gets to stay with their RE for so much longer! Like shauni27 said, everyone else I know gets to stay until 10 or 11 weeks. I feel a little a abandoned!
My OB is a rec from a friend with infertility and loss and she said he was so reassuring and comforting and offered her extra appointments. That first visit won’t have an ultrasound but hoping they can get me in soon after for another scan so I don’t go off the rails.
Once we saw a heartbeat, we were discharged from the RE too. So I think around 6 weeks.
In the early days, when it was too soon to hear the heartbeat on the doppler, by OB pulled out a low-ish tech ultrasound machine once or twice just to see/hear the heartbeat. I think it was just for my benefit. They might be able to do the same for you, especially given your loss history.
Best news! How are you feeling, physically? Good, I hope!
Nauseous and so bloated and icky. I actually love it. It’s horrible but it’s what I’ve been waiting for for so long that I’m not even mad. I’m sure I’ll change my tune once it goes on and on and I feel progressively worse. 😂
