OMG. I am so darn excited! And relieved! And shocked! I rented a doppler last week and have tried it a couple of times, knowing it is on the early side. (I’m 9w3d today.) So today my uterus feels really firm and near the surface, so I thought I’d give it another whirl. I started low and went all the way up the “uterus region”…..nothing. Then I thought “what the heck? That took all of two minutes, let try going back down.” All the sudden I heard this totally different sound than I had been hearing and the digital reading was fluctuating between 173-177. It had to be it, but my trusted friend google would be able to confirm. One “fetal heartbeat sound” search later and I heard the same sound coming from my computer!
Yea, little one! I am absolutely in awe and so excited that baby is growing with a healthy heartbeat much longer than any of the rest and now I can have reassurance any time. Woo hoo!!!
And Lisa, if you are out there, I’ve been thinking about you–hope the move and meds are going well!
