That was the heartbeat at my doctors appointment this morning! I wasn't expecting to hear a hb, I went in for my physical exam, all is looking good, excellent bp, lost 5lbs since the last appointment (but doc says nothing to worry about), and got to hear the baby.
I feel so much better - completely reassured me for tomorrows NT scan. Such a beautiful sound and a lovely high number :)
My doctor says they don't, as standard, tell the gender so if I want I can go to 2 places to get a separate scan, but I'm hoping my accent will sway them when i chat with them at ultrasounds ;)
