No Clue

Hi all. This is my first child. I am about 12 weeks now (maybe 11) the doc never really gives me a straight answer. I don't really have too many symptoms: sore br___ts which are now huge, tired and occassionally nautious. never had morning sickness. what concerns me is that last week the doc. couldn't hear the heartbeat so we are going for an ultrasound. she seems to order them frequently. this will be the third. anyway, i guess i'm just worried. the other is i seem to be gaining a lot of weight very quickly. is this normal? i keep hearing these women who tell me they gained 15 punds in total. i've gained at least that in 12 weeks. anyway, i'm also crampy here and there. any feedback would be most welcome.

Well, sometimes you can't hear the hb until 14 wks with a doppler. So, that could be it. Did you hear/see it with your other u/s? Unfortunately when this happened to me , I had a m/c, I was p__sed at the nurse who did the scan b/c she made it sound like everything would be okay and it wasn't - the next day we had a vag u/s and the baby hadn't developed past 8 wks. I know how scary this is for you and I'm sorry that they are making you wait so long for another scan. I hope everything turns out okay. As for the weight gain, I think everyone is different - your gain will probably start to slow down and just be aware of what you are eating - don't over indulge - you really only need an extra 300 calories per day. Keep satsified but eat healthy. Good luck yo you!
