My first CNM appointment is Wednesday when I'll be 8w4d. I already had it scheduled for my annual well-check, but they converted it to a maternity appointment. Now I'm wondering if there's any chance I'll be able to hear the hb then. I don't think I heard it with my first until 10+ weeks. My 2nd pregnancy only used the fetoscope, so that was well into the 2nd trimester. I can't remember when we heard it during my 3rd. I'm pretty sure the CNM doesn't have an u/s machine - they've sent me elsewhere to check in my last pregnancy - so I won't be seeing the hb.
I'm kinda wishing I had a chance to see/hear something before telling family at Thanksgiving. My next appt will be in mid-December.
Anyone heard the hb before 9 weeks?
