First midwife appointment today!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Just had to share! Went to my first appointment today - heard that little heartbeat for the first time!! :throb  SO exciting!!  Everything checked out fine, DH went with me, and I got to see the glow in his eyes when the midwife finally found that soft little heartbeat. 160 BPM, my mom says fast heart rate = girl.

 

Anyone else have exciting news? :)

How cool! That first HB is the best :) Your husband sounds adorable. 
Mine little one was beating away at 174 today - so maybe girl too?

Yay!! Congrats!! I love me some dewy-eyed husband! According to every single (non-medical professional) person I know, high heartbeat totally mean a girl :) )

 

My husband and I acted so awkwardly after hearing the heartbeat that I'm sure we had our MW convinced it was the first day we had met. Starting with the moment he PATTED ME ON THE SHOULDER (hilarious), which is coincidentally the same moment when I remembered that he was even in the room, haha!

 

(I think heartbeat appt after previous m/c equaled too much relief/disbelief for us to feel other emotion, lol )

:rotflmaoAhahaha! My husband shook my hand once, because something exciting happened (don't remember) and we were in front of my parents. I was like, "Did you just shake my HAND?!" and couldn't stop laughing the whole day. 

 

Your husband sounds adorable!
