Thanks for all the T&Ps ladies! Someone must have been listening! It took her a minute, but at the top of my uterus (seems to be the place my babies like!) she found a good strong heartbeat of 168! She says at this point with a heartbeat my chances of m/c go down drastically, but I am on pelvic rest (sorry DH, but yay for my hormones. Now I have a good excuse! ) and orders to rest and put my feet up as much as possible for at least a few days. I still go in on Friday for my full appt, so I will get to hear that beautiful sound again!
