That was the sound we got to hear today - the amazing "whoosh whoosh" of our baby's heartbeat. I had my next scheduled appointment today with Dr. B. It was a different sort of appointment - I'm so used to long, in-depth ones - and I think this one we were only there for about 10 minutes tops. Enough time to get my weight, a urine sample, a new prenatal vitamin prescription, a prescription for Zofran (an anti-nausea med that will hopefully let me eat again!), AND to hear our baby's heartbeat on the doppler.
Dr. B put some jell on my belly and then used the small little hand held doppler to find the heartbeat. It took a few minutes (which were the LONGEST few minutes of my life) and then we heard the obvious sound of the heartbeat. I can't even begin to explain how happy we are!
Next appointment is in 4 weeks - for the most part I'm a normal patient now!
