I heard the heartbeat!!! February 18, 2009

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!

    That is so awesome!!! It took me until I was twelve weeks before I could find the heartbeat myself. I was up way too high but am now a pro at it. I wish I would have gotten a digital one but for now I just have to count the beats. I am so glad you’ve come this far!!! I hope your reassurance comes soon so you can enjoy every minute. Congrats!
