    Default Back from first 'official' appointment! -XP

    And everything looked great! I got the full work-up, as per usual: pap, breast exam, STD check, etc. Then she pulled out the doppler! I was so nervous all morning that there wouldn't be a HB anymore (when will the irrational thoughts go away?!), so wouldn't you know, she couldn't find the HB! She said not to worry, that at this point it can still be really hard to find the HB with the doppler, so she wheeled an old u/s machine in to do a quick scan. And yay, everything looked great! That little HB flicker popped right up on the screen! Unfortunately, we didn't get to hear it, but at least we saw it and know everything is all good! Apparently the placenta was on top of the baby, so she said it was acting as a sound barrier at this point. Hopefully the doppler will be able to pick it up at my next appointment!

    Now I'm looking forward to my NT scan in 2 weeks so we can actually hear the HB!

    YAYYYY!! I had the same thing with Evan at around 10 weeks the doppler wouldn't find it and we got a quickie U/S to be sure. For those few minutes it was torture though! Then pure relief! Congrats - almost at 2nd tri whoohoo
