There's a Heart beat

Had my first OB appointment today. Since we were at the fertility clinic until 13 weeks, this was the first time I got to meet her. Well second. I met her a few years ago. She is my family Dr's wife. They work out of the same office. Very comforting, since the health problems I have had.

Any way. She decided to try to hear the heart beat. She said even though it's rare to hear it this early, we would try... HOw absolutely amazing to hear that whoomp whoomp sound. Blood pressure is low (95 over 60) but she said that is better then being too high. Next appointment is in 4 weeks. I can't wait Smile

Congrats on hearing the heartbeat! There is no better sound in the world. And I also have low blood pressure, not just when I am pg, but all the time. I think the only time mine was that low was right after I got out of bed for the first time after having dd2. They just happened to come check my vitals right after I got up and got a shower. The lady was surprised that I was standing up when she did it. I guess you just get used to the light headedness after a while.
Didn't mean to highjack your thread!
