So I was finally able to see my OB today for my “first” OB appointment…only 4 weeks late! So things were going well at first, we chatted for a second and then he wanted to hear the baby’s heartbeat. He tried several times and then stated this is normal to not hear it at 12 weeks…OK ladies you and I all know that is not true. Everyone, well almost, everyone hears the heartbeat at the first OB appt 8-10 weeks. He acted all causal about it and we did the rest of the exam. At the end of the appointment he asked if I could stick around and have an ultrasound. Boy was I relieved. I was so thankful that he requested this. I waited about 10min and was called back for my ultrasound. As soon as she started the exam I could see my baby…yes folks ONLY ONE, she turned the screen so I could see the little heartbeat beating fast!! 175 beats per minute to be exact. Yeah everything turned out great and I was able to bring pictures home to show the kids the baby…too bad we do not know what we are having yet! She looked but it’s way to early to tell! Only time will tell. Well off to bed I need to be ready for bible study in the AM!

  1. Congrats! I’m glad they offered the ultrasound! I hate when they have a hard time hearing the heartbeat!
