had my mw appointment today bloods all ok and heard babies heartbeat <img alt="luxlove.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/luxlove.gif"> was so relieved cos have tried twice in the last week using my doppler and could not find it and have not really being feeling any movements, it took the mw and student mw a while to find the heartbeat, the mw said the baby was moving lot's and she also said baby was higher up than expected thats why it took a while to find the heartbeat.<br>
I son't see the mw again till i'm 28 weeks so got 3 months till my next mw appointment that seems like ages to go, i have my 20 week scan on the 20th of december i'll be 19+6 weeks then <img alt="smile.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/smile.gif">

<p>Sounds like a great appt.  Wow, that is a long time between appointments.  I go monthly until the 3rd tri and then "I think" it is every 2 weeks.  Not too long until your scan.  How exciting.</p>
