10 weeks 1 day, baby was moving and hb was 171! Baby was perfect in size and right on target.
I feel much better now, feeling a little more like this baby is going to stick around.

I can relate... I heard the heartbeat last week... 174 at about 8 weeks. It was lovely! Congrats!

YAY!

I love, love, love hearing my baby's heartbeat. It makes the little person so real!

Good thing I don't have my own doppler!

Yay for getting to hear that heartbeat! That is so wonderful. I am so glad that everything is on track. Hopefully that helps to put your mind at ease so you can just sit back and enjoy your pregnancy.

yay! hearing the heartbeat is so wonderful and reassuring.
i heard the heartbeat yesterday, for the first time. i started to cry! it was the neatest little 'woosh woosh' noise, and you can just tell it's a sound that's not being made by your body... but by someone else's. how cool is that!!

how neat! I am a bit excited to hear our little one as well, don't have an appt for 3 weeks or so.

I heard ours today, too! I'm at 10w, so it was pretty cool.

Better yet, the OB pointed out that once they know there's a beating heart, the chance of miscarriage drops from 1:4 to 1:100. YAY!

My husband couldn't hear it. I've had multiple echocardiograms (previous heart ailment), so I know what to listen for. I could pick out my own heartbeat easily, so all I had to do was listen for the rapid-fire ammo of the wee one!

I'm a little nervous.. I have my first prenatal appointment on Wednesday. According to my charts and calculations, I will be 11 weeks, 5 days. I don't know if the midwife will try to hear the heartbeat or not. It would make me feel good to hear it though!

O Rachel that is SO wonderful! Congrats to the other mamas too! I haven't heard ours yet... And Rachel thank you for the Safety Resources. Do you have some of those books I could borrow? I also have those mat. jeans for you.

Hey! We need to get together again- that was fun. Maybe you & Rob can come over for dinner... (just realized I would need to cook... hmm)

The only book I have is The Birth Partner by Penny Simkin
I have read a couple of others.
I have Sheila Kitzinger's The Complete Book of Pregnancy & Childbirth (very good!) and Ida May's Guide to Childbirth Which I think would be another good one, because she is generally very respected in the medical community.
You can come and see what I have-
