Sooo I went and she found the heartbeat on the doppler (in the 150s) which is awesome. She thinks it was just some random thing. It was horrible because it took FOREVER to find the heartbeat. I was starting to get teary, DH was holding my hand, the kiddos were asking "Why don't we hear it mama?" and my friend was telling me that I might have to go in for an ultrasound....then blessedly she found our little peanut squished up against the far right side of uterus. Then he/she swam away, lol. I feel relieved that the baby sounded good. She offered to check my cervix, but I figured I would rather not have any extra poking around in there. I'm a tiny bit worried as we both thought that is really shouldn't have been that hard to get bub's heartbeat on the doppler at 11 weeks and 5 days...but I am trying not to stress out. I'm sure all is well.
I think I am going to give in and have a 20 week ultrasound, and I think this time I may find out the gender....I have just been feeling this crazing longing to know this time so I may end up honoring that.
I really appreciate all the positive thoughts mama!!
Phatchristy-I am so sorry your DS has a bug :( And super sorry that you had the puke-extravaganza in the middle of the night. that is no kind of fun, totally been there done that and yeah, ick. :( Hope you get rest and he feels better, and here's to hoping your other babes don't get sick!
Madis- FWIW my second DD has told me that we can exchange the new baby if it is a boy as she loves her brother Henry but "we don't need more boy babies with peanuts" I have had numerous conversations with her that we can't actually exchange the new baby and that if it is a boy he will be so excited to have her teach him stuff, and she is sloooooooooowly coming around. Except she wants to name him Telleka. Hmmm, apparently we have some work to do, lol.
Travelmumma- YAY about the house mama!!! I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you mama!!! xxxxxxxx
Hope all is well!
btw-has anyone heard from mamaharrison or from zebrachick? Haven't seen them in a while :( Hope they're well!
