12 week appt, pretty emotional
Wed, 08-22-2012 - 11:08pm
Today was my 12 week appt and DH came with me to hear the HB. (We saw bean on the 8 wk US and heard the HB then). The midwife looked about 25 years old! But very nice. She listened for the HB and after much pushing, pinching, and pulling she couldn't find anything. :smileysad: this never happened with my first two :smileysad: it was like me worst dream coming true. So she said she was sending me down the hall for an US. Of course I didn't have a full bladder, so more pushing with the wand occurred, but they found beautiful bean bouncing around!! It was a quick exam since everything turned out just fine. I burst into tears because I was so relieved and I could tell the MW and the tech were really happy as well!

Wow. Glad everything turned out okay! I have my 13 week appt tomorrow and I looking forward to hearing that heartbeat for the first. Always a little nerve-wracking! :smileyhappy:
