After a ridiculously long wait (6.5 hours) we finally got into the doctor tonight for our 12 week appointment. First of all, to his credit my doctor delivered 3 babies in the morning and saw an entire days worth of patients after (which explains why I was still there at 11 pm).

So onto Baby L news. Dr. T told me I was not allowed to freak out if he couldn't find the heartbeat with the doppler. He was pretty sure he would but JUST in case he told us that he would do an ultrasound (after he saw his last 2 patients) if he could not find it. But it only took a minute for him to find the heart beating away fast and furious (170). Everything is "looking" good and we are now on a regular schedule of monthly appointments rather than 2 weeks ones we have been having.

YES!!!!! Whoop, whoop!!!!!! I am so happy for you guys. I can't believe you actually waited that long, but I'm thrilled you did!!!!! That's amazing if he was able to find the heartbeat so easily. I'm sure it's a big relief (even though you will still worry). I hope you and DH are doing something to celebrate.

Congrats again!
