Today I had my 12 week appt with my dr. and although the assistant as well as the dr. were VERY skeptical about even trying to hear the heartbeat, I convinced her to try and guess, what?<br><br>
The heartbeat was there - nice and strong! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/jumpers.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="jumpers">:<br><br>
She seemed very surprised that we were able to find it, but I knew we would - I didn't doubt it for a second <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
Happy days . . . and now I'm debating how I should tell my co-workers . . . Somehow sending an email announcing it seems strange this time around. Hmmm . . . ideas anyone?

oh, that's a wonderful thing to hear. Congrats.<br>
As for spreading the news at work...I bet if you tell one or two people first thing in the morning, 10 more people will know by lunch, and everyone will know by the end of the week. Everyone loves spreading that kind of news. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

Why did they think they couldn't hear a heartbeat at 12 weeks? Now if you were 10 weeks, that might make sense to me but not at 12.

No heartbeat yet, and it's driving me a little crazy. We're doing a homebirth with a DE midwife, so no early u/s for me (we might do one at 20-24w, just to make sure we're good to go). Had the first prenatal at 10.5 weeks, and no doppler beat then, so now I have to wait about 3 more weeks! I just can't wait to know if this little one is doing alright. Although she's making me sick enough that I can only imagine she's really strong!

A doppler should be able to pick up a heartbeat at 12 weeks. I wonder why they thought they wouldn't be able to? Well anyway, YAY!!<br><br>
I'm 13 weeks, we heard the heart beat yesterday <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/heartbeat.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="heartbeat">

Yeah, my regular OB (who I switched to at 32 weeks last time so we didn't do all the early stuff together), is out on maternity leave so I had to meet with the naturopath physician that practices in her office.<br><br>
I don't think she regularly works with OB patients, nor does she do dopplers much. So I think that plays a part. Either way, I wasn't leaving the office without trying <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"><br><br>
And I'm thinking I'll probably send an email to my coworkers this afternoon since I work in an office full of women who go nuts over pregnancies and there are some people would have their feelings hurt of they didn't happen to hear about it for a while.<br><br>
Congrats to those who have alos heard heartbeats - and for those who haven't, I'm sure it will come, and when you do, you'll be ecstatic!!
