I went to hear baby's HB today (I'm 8w2d) and after searching and searching with the doppler and not getting a real good listen (just very short captures here and there), my OB decided to send me down the hall for a quick scan. She wasn't worried (8 weeks is pretty early still to hear the HB with the doppler), but figured it was pretty easy to make sure all was well by having a look with the U/S machine.
Baby's measuring 8w3d and his/her little heart was pounding away at 170. It was a very quick peek, but everything looks good. It's the earliest U/S I've ever had....it'll be hard to wait for the next one now that I've had a look. LOL
(We're still going to keep the pregnancy to ourselves for now, so please still nothing on FB yet!)
Yeah, I don't know why she (my OB) offered for me to come in between appts to listen for the HB, but since she offered I went for it! With Brennan and Jamie I didn't have a HB check until my 10 week appt. So....not sure why she offered at my 6 week appt for me to come in for a quick check at 8 weeks, but I took her up on it. My next routine appt is next week when I'll be 10 weeks.
