Best sound ever!!!

I had a DRs appointment to today and I got to hear the baby's heartbeat for the first time. What a glorious sound!! At first she was not going to try because it is early to hear. (they say you can hear for sure at 12wks and I am 10 wks). But I reminded her that we heard DD's at 10wks, so she tried. It was quiet but we heard it. I also gained 10 lbs in 5.5 wks, oh well. I always gain weight early and then level off. My blood work came back good, but I lost my Rubella immunity, so I will have to get a booster after the baby is born. My next appointment is early October.

That's great! My next appointment isn't for 3 more weeks and I hope to hear the heartbeat then. I've seen it on the ultrasound, but I hear there's something special about hearing it on the doppler. Smile

Yay for hearing the heartbeat! I love that sound. I didn't get to hear it at mine but I did see it....just as reassuring.

So glad you got to hear your little one!

When I had my appt 2 weeks ago (I was then 9 weeks, 1 day) we heard the HB...I didn't know they might not be able to hear it that early. Ha, but then again with my other two I didn't go in until I was between 4-5 months.
