Found the heartbeat!

Okay, I'm done worrying and panicking that my screwed up body hadn't gotten the memo that I had miscarried (remember me with the uneasy feeling and paranoia for no reason? lol.). My husband told me not to try to find the HB again tonight, but I told him I felt like I was being called to look for it tonight. I mean it's almost 11pm at night and I suddenly get the urge to check which is not me normally at all. Took 30 seconds to find it and a couple of minutes to get it "zoned" in correctly to get a reading (it was 155-165). Much relief!

Okay, I can go to sleep happy. And I'll probably spend money on newborn cloth diapers tomorrow at the Great Cloth Diaper Change. Blum 3

Yay! I think most people worry until they're clear of the 1st trimester (I know I do!) but I'm glad you found the heartbeat! Biggrin I assume you're using a doppler?

Yes, my best friend had sent me her Doppler. Smile

YAY Smile My sister is going to go see her friend that has hers sometime today or tomorrow. I am hoping that she will get the doppler back (her friend is Due in Sept. and already knows the baby's sex) so that I can borrow it and find the HB. We saw the heart beating at our dating ultrasound about a month ago, but didnt get to hear it. It was really early, and she had a hard time measuring it, and got a rat of 117. I think I will rest easier once we hear it again and know that its above the 120's.

Great news! Had you tried a lot before you finally got it? I'm borrowing one this weekend from a friend and we've been unable to find it yet.

I had tried a few times before for just a few minutes each attempt. Though it's not uncommon depending on the brand and age of the doppler for it to not pick up anything till 14 weeks or later.

So happy for you!!! I know exactly what you meant when you said you were being "called" to listen for it. I don't have a doppler but, am seriously considering renting one online. I had a filling done last week and didn't think to mention that I was expecting to my dentist. Next thing I knew, he gave me 2 oral shots (for pain) and I just had an awful feeling-light headed/nauseated. Ever since then, I've been worrying and probably will until my next appt next week when I can hear the heartbeat again.

The majority of density work is perfectly safe during pregnancy. A local pain shot shouldn't have done anything to your baby. Now I have felt nauseated for random things and I'm pretty sure all the nasty tasting stuff they use would have done it for me. Wink
Hope you hear the heartbeat soon!

I'm sure you are right. You know, this being my 3rd I should be a lot more relaxed than I really am about things. I just seem to be constantly second guessing what I already know. It's almost like becoming a first time mommy again!

You are so not alone. I'm prego with #4 and still get that sometimes. I only had 9 months between my 2nd and 3rd pregnancy, and I swear I worried the most my 3rd time around.
