one of the reaons i like UP'ing--i'm giddy when it's a shared experience w/ my loved ones. in a doctor's office, i'm pretty objective, at least until i get home.
i think the OB during my transvaginal u/s was a bit surprised by my lack of reaction. but considering the circumstances: i had just had a pap, a breast exam, a skin exam (a la, being gawked at completely naked by a strange *male*--altho, he was really great about it) and had to confess my previous homebirths/UC's/midwifery experience... it was a bit clinical to be heartfelt.
but when i heard the heartbeat via my doppler yesterday for the first time, alone, i shed a tear.
