Went for our 12 week appt today. The midwife came in, went over history, etc, etc. She said we'd try to find the heartbeat on doppler, but it was still a little early and many women still don't hear it at 12 weeks, especially if the uterus is tilted or the baby is way in the back. She moved it around for a few minutes and I thought for sure we weren't going to hear it...then there it was. Loud and unmistakable. 160 beats a minute. I smiled, then cried uncontrollably for a few minutes. Very thankful that the baby's dad was there and very supportive. I still can't believe it. This is my first pregnancy so this is the first time I've heard another heartbeat inside of me besides mine. It's so crazy.
