Hi Girls, I'm back from a VERY stressful appointment, but the news is good!

The NP could not find the heartbeat with the fetal doppler, after assuring me I was definitely far enough along and thin enough to where it would be no problem. She tried for a full 10 mins, all the while I was getting more and more freaked out as she was saying, "Now I don't want you to panic yet." Lovely. hahha She was really super sweet though.

The sonographer was able to see me right away, and decided since I had to bring the boys with me she would try on top of the belly rather than vaginal ultrasound. It took her 4 minutes by my watch, but she finally said, "There's the heartbeat, I'll turn the sound on for the boys." So we saw the baby, who was flipping and kicking and just all over the place...and we heard his heartbeat. His heart was beating away at 171 beats per minute...and how I got teary eyed watching all the kicks! I measured right on at 11w1d.

I feel SOOOOO much better!!!





Original Message:Hey Ladies, my ob had an emergency this morning, so I go in at 2pm today. The NP said they will do a fetal heart rate check first, and if they need to order an ultrasound from there but neither she nor my doctor feel it will come to the ultrasound.

At my regular appointment next week the NP said he'll likely do another ultrasound to ensure it's not placenta previa (which I had with Nathan in a minor way, but it corrected itself by 20 weeks).

Just thought I'd let you all know because originally my appt was supposed to be 11:15am today. I haven't had any more spotting since Sat night.

Thank you...I was kind of bummed, but thankful I wasn't the one with the emergency. Always look for the silver lining, ya know?
