I started feeling movement a few weeks ago but I haven't felt anything for several days so I was already kind of freaking out that something was wrong with the baby. I was really looking forward to hearing the heart beat on the doppler so I could get some reassurance. But when the nurse put the doppler on my belly we couldn't hear anything. She must have spent a good 5 mins looking for a HB without any success! I was trying as hard as I could to fight back the tears. I don't think I have ever been so scared! She went and got another nurse who finally after about a minute of looking was able to find a faint heartbeat. she said the baby was just down pretty low and really wiggling around! The HR was 160 and sounded good. I'm so glad everything is ok and I really hope that never happens again because it was terrifying.

My Dr. ordered my big u/s and after the appointment I was able to go schedule it. It will be at 8am on April 28th! I can't wait! I really hope this month flies by.

So glad to see that the baby is alright -- I always get panicky when I can't find Baby Acorn's heart beat on my doppler at home.

April 28th will come in no time -- it better, as that's my big u/s too!
Thank you JAIDYNSMUM for my adorable new siggy!
