Heard the Heartbeat Today!

So I had my 11 week appointment today and got to hear the heartbeat. My original nurse told me she wasn't the best with the doppler and may have to have help since the baby is so small. She needed help and got the second nurse, but then the second nurse couldn't find it either so I started getting nervous. Finally my doctor came in and she got it instantly. So very cool to hear that sound...167BPM and going strong :)

AWESOME!!!! My OB told me that they dont listen with the doppler til 12 weeks.. and my next appointment is 11 weeks. so.. I really hope they atleast try. I'd be megga disappointed and scared to have to wait til 15 weeks to hear it.
