First Pregnancy - Week 16 Worries!

Hi all, 

I'm 32, pregnant for the first time, and winding up week 16. I'm pretty super paranoid that the baby isn't alive anymore, because I'm not really showing (I have a nice bit of belly fat, however) and I don't feel any different. We have our next appointment on the 26th, and I don't know if I can wait until then!!! Do doctors let you come in for a doppler if you're just paranoid?? 

Thank you!

With my first I didn't show until I was nearly 25 weeks, they say it takes longer for your uterus to stretch out the first time around. I'm now pregnant with my second and 17 weeks still not really showing. I wouldn't worry at all, just wait it out, the 26th is only 2 weeks away :smileyhappy:
