We got to see the baby yesterday!!! OMG it was amazing! My little guy was hiding though and gave us a little scare. First they used the Doppler but could find the heartbeat, then they went for the abdominal US but said my uterus was tilted back so we could see anything. Finally they went with the intra-uterus one and we saw the heart beating right away! Phew!

My little guy has a strong heartbeat, they didn't tell me what but I saw 177 on the screen. It is measuring almost exactly a week behind at 8 weeks 5 days, but the dr's aren't worried so neither am I. The CNM that did the exam said she's not the best US tech so thinks it might be her that's measuring wrong. Anyways, I get to have another sneak peak at the babe at my next appt with my OB to remeasure.

In all the excitement we forgot to ask for a print out, and when I sent my DH into the hall to get one they had already rebooted the machine. Boo! They said they don't normally give one out this early, I think that's crap! I told them they just severely disappointed some grandmas out there. I will make sure my OB gives me one in April.

Yay for a good appointment! That's great that you saw the heartbeat. Congrats! That is crap to not give you a print out. I got one at 5 weeks (of my little sac, sans baby) not much to look at, but it's no cost to them to give you something you can hang onto!

I know right! You would think the standard would be to give you a picture, so it is really weird that their standard is not to give you one.
