  • I don't think I got to hear it until like 16 weeks! It was a lot sooner with my second.

  • During my last pg they couldn't find the h/b with the doppler at my 11 week appointment, but since I have a history of miscarriage they let me have an ultrasound and everything was fine. We found it just fine at my 15 week appointment!
