Found the heartbeat!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I found it today! It was VERY far forward. I had it just above my pubic bone and angled so far forward part of the doppler (angelsounds) was off my body by an inch or 2. I didn't time it but I could tell it was good and fast. I only listened long enough to confirm, show tyler, enjoy it for a second and then I shut it off. So happy my bean is trucking along.

Last night I tried but couldn't find it yet, and all night I dreamt of miscarriage. Which is silly because logically I know it's early to be hearing it. I guess subconciously we're always terrified. My last bean's heart stopped at 8w4d.

Probably tomorrow I'll try again with speakers so I can take a video to post. And my ultrasound pics are in (from 6w3d) so I'll be able to share those tomorrow too. :)

Awesome! Where was the probe positioned when it picked up the heartbeat?

It was just above the pubic bone, angled downwards (towards my toes) very sharply, such that the bottom of the doppler (pear shaped machine) was lifted away from my body quite a bit. My uterus sits very far forward, I can feel it already when I press on my abdomen. So the baby is very close to the surface of my skin.


I found it early with my last pg too, my abdomen was in a similar position. But the baby wasn't sitting quite so far forward. I think it implanted in a different spot than last time.

I totally missed that! Sorry. I'm rocking a migraine and probably should just get some sleep. I got mine, but it's probably too soon to find anything, especially with a little pudge.

BTW - I know that my uterus was sitting towards the back before the pregnancy with DD. I had a c-section and they lift your uterus out of your body (freaky and not really necessary...anyways) so I have no clue how it is sitting now.
