Great 1st prenatal appt.!

The midwife was extremely nice and encouraged me to ask questions. Other than the boring PAP and bloodwork, she listened with a doppler and we found the heartbeat for a bit! It was hard since I'm only 10 weeks tomorrow but there it was, such a sweet sound! 160ish she said. My uterus is tilted upward nicely, which was a big help. I'm so excited that everything is going so well and that tomorrow my embryo will officially be a fetus! I can't wait for my uterus to start growing so I can feel the bump!

10 weeks is so exciting, isn't it? I can hardly wait for the next 2-3 weeks to pass by so I can really start feeling my belly and also so I can reveal the good news on facebook finally!

Soo glad you got to hear the heartbeat via doppler! We haven't been able to get mine to show up on the doppler... So we've had to resort to ultrasounds. And I'm by no means complaining about that! I love seeing my baby! Congrats on the great 1st apt!!
