  • Some women don't experience the throwing up and sleepiness. I'm about 31 weeks and I'm still experiencing all those symptoms, so consider yourself very lucky.

  • hon, you wont hear a heartbeat untill you go to the doctor--you should definatly make an appointment soon, there is sooo much important prenatal stuff you and baby are missing out on. im 17 weeks and have already been to the doc 4 times, had 1 ultrasound, and finding out the sex next week. by 16 weeks you should have your ultrasound appointment already booked. plus its so nice to hear from the doc that everything seems to be going in the right direction. im not giving you a hard time, maybe you talked to a doc and they havent scheduled you yet...just saying....hope you have a great pregnancy!
    by the way, its perfectly normal to feel "unpregnant" at this stage-dont worry..very soon all those crazy symptons will come back!

  • i went at 6 weeks and got my first ultrasound, but i dont have a scheduled appointment until january 10th.. i dont kno why they are waiting so long for my appointments, i was diabetic prepregnacy and i have already had several complications, but they just send me to the ER because they dont have any opne appointments. it worries me.

  • I would change doctors. Go somewhere where they have more openings. You should be going to the doctors a lot more than you have been. Good luck!
