Going to the Doctor tomorrow....

This is kinda corny, but…
I’d like all of you Dopers to keep your collective fingers crossed for me and my wife tomorrow. You see, we have a Doctors appointment, with our “Reproductive Specialist.” We’ve had three miscarriages (she’d kill me if she knew I was broadcasting that), and so far this one has gone absolutely perfect! So tomorrow we go in for an ultrasound. If everything is right, we will see a heartbeat (we’ve never been to heartbeat stage before!) and then we’ll be released to our regular Doctor.
So, if its not too much trouble, please cross your fingers, say a little prayer, sacrafice a goat, whatever. I don’t know if it will help, but it sure can’t hurt. Then I’ll do the same for you, when it’s your turn…

(Just kidding about that goat thing, by the way!)

My sincerest best wishes for you all, I will keep my toes crossed too!

Cyberkisses to you & the wife!

Hey good luck, makphisto & wife. I won’t tell her you posted here. It’ll be our little secret.

Reproductive Specialist? That sounds like a great part-time job for me.

Best of luck!..Hope everything is ok…See if you can get the doc to record the heartbeat…it’ll make a great .wav file for your system start-up…

Best of luck to both of you.

My prayers for you both. I hope it all goes well.

How far along is your wife? Usually a heart beat is detectable around the 8th week. I’m sure you know this, ( But I’m gonna tell you anyways) the rate for miscarriages drops dramatically after the first trimester.

Any way…good luck, I’m crossing everything I have for the most excellenteous results you can have tomorrow!

I have no goat to sacrifice, how about a burnt meatloaf?

All my best to you and your wife, Makphisto.

We also went through 3 miscarriages, in the space of 2 years, but we eventually succeeded.

Good luck, and I hope you keep us informed. We care.

Hey, best of luck to you and yours, Makphisto! Do come back and let us know! (And I like the idea of recording it and using it as a startup sound!)

My mother miscarried twice before me and was told she shouldn’t get pregnant again. She did. She was told she would never be able to carry me to term. She did. So HA!

Wishing you the best of luck,

Best of luck to all three of you, and beaming good karma your way. Let us know, okay?

BTW, I echo the sentiments above. My cousin was told she could never have children. I just got home late, shopping for 2nd birthday present for the youngest.


Like LauraRae, I, too, am a third try. And my mother was 42 at the time.

Your son or daughter will make a fine Doper down the road. That alone should be an important enough reason to go the whole nine…months :slight_smile:

Good luck and God(dess) bless. Please let us know how it works out.


Godspeed, Makphisto. First the pitter-patter of the little heart…

Well, we just got back, and everything went teriffic! We are 8 weeks and 3 days along, and we had a little blob with a heart!

So we are very excited, with nervous anticipation!

Thanks for the kind words, everyone!


Let me be the first to say :
Milk for everyone!!! :slight_smile: :slight_smile: :slight_smile: :slight_smile: :slight_smile: :slight_smile: :slight_smile:

I guess some days it DOES pay to chew through the leather restraining straps!!!

Woohoo!!! :slight_smile:

Glad to hear that! :slight_smile:

Yeah for the little blob child!!

Still keeping fingers and toes crossed for a smooth and uneventful pregnancy for the two of you!

Huzzah! Stay well, God bless and keep…

Makphisto, this time everything is going to be fine.

I’m really happy for you.

“Dad” It’s a neat word.
