...didn't think I would.<br><br>
I went to the OB's office, waited forever, filled out a zillion forms for the idiotic secretary who kept calling me "Kim" <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">:, found out I gained 4 pounds, and then waiting in an empty exam room for an hour with nothing but a paper sheet covering my lower half.<br><br>
She checked my breasts (ouch) and then took out this little machine with a flat microphone-like attachment and stuck it on my belly. It took FOREVER and all I could hear was my own heart. I started to hold my breath thinking "she won't be able to find anything, there's nothing in there", when suddenly I heard this fast little rhythm...I can't describe the sound with words, almost like a pulsing chomping sound, but there it was loud, clear and steady. I could hear it well as long as I held my breath.<br><br>
All I can say is...Wow. Just wow.
