I had my first appointment today and with a new doctor. After giving my new doctor my history and chatting a little about how I've been feeling she said, "I think we're going to hear heart tones today." My response was, "REALLY!" I have 2 children and this is my 4th pregnancy. I explained to her that I've never heard a heartbeat until I was at least 12-13 weeks with either of my girls. I wasn’t feeling very optimistic but I truly needed the reassurance so that I would know everything was going to be okay. As soon as my doctor placed the wand on my stomach, there it was, the most AMAZING sound. I got to hear the baby’s heartbeat at 10 weeks and 3 days! It was such a relief and the tears started rolling! I have an ultrasound scheduled for next Tuesday and then back to the doctor in a month. So very excited about this day.
