Just had to share.

They can never hear the heartbeat through a doppler for awhile with me because I have a uterus that tilts quite a bit toward my back. They are always so kind to just do a super quick u/s long enough for me to see the heartbeat.

I needed to see it because I've been having a bit of a hard time connecting to this pregnancy. Been sooo sick and soooo tired and soooo busy with my toddler, baby (he's almost a year) and my two teens who started their schooling this past Monday (we homeschool). It's been crazy.

Now it finally feels real.

Who is still waiting to hear their babe's hb?

Isn't that just the greatest sound???


I am still waiting. I will be 10 weeks tomorrow and won't see my MW until about 12 weeks. It is going to be a long 2 weeks

: So glad you got to hear it.

I haven't heard a HB yet, and was hoping to yesterday, but my MW was called to attend a patient in labor and had to cancel our appointment. My uterus tips backward too, so the chances of hearing it at 11 weeks were slim, but I was still hopeful. In two weeks though, I will have a much better chance. In previous pregnancies, once my uterus started to grow past the pelvis it straightens out.

Yay for heartbeats! My husband and I got to see the heartbeat (and the baby) at an ultrasound today. Tomorrow the midwife is sure to use a doppler so we'll get to hear it too!

The due date according to the midwife is 2/28/09 while the ultrasound indicates 3/4/09 so I'll be hanging around here too.

My first prenatal with the midwife is next week (11 weeks). I'm hoping to hear the heartbeat with a doppler then... the visit is in my house, so no ultrasounds. I can't wait to hear it and I'll be so disappointed if we don't b/c i'll have to wait another 6 weeks!

I have my first appointment next monday...I will be 10 weeks. I am nervous but really excited. With our first, we had an US at the 1st visit but now that we are using a midwife, we will probably not see the baby till 20 wks. I can't wait.
