I had a OB appointment yesterday and while I was waiting I spoke to a lady who was in her 34th wk and after a few mins she went back for her Appointment, As I was sitting there the doctor came out and asked another nurse to come in the room... a few minutes later she came out and asked another nurse to come back because they couldn't find the heart beat with the doppler, after couple mins that nurse came out and called the Ultrasound tech... during that time the nurses and doctor continued to try like hell to find the heart beat, 8-10 mins go by and the US tech rushes in and they start an ultra sound, The whole time I am praying like I have never prayed before, 5 mins later everyone files out of the US room Minus the doctor the Tech and the lady... My heart sinks, 2 minutes later the doctor comes out with a smile and I very nearly JUMPED with Joy!!!! Apparently the baby was facing the wrong way in laying in such a way that his little heart beat wasn't reaching with the doppler... A few minutes later she comes out looking pale but happy and Heaven help me I couldn't help but jump up and hug her!! We hugged for a minute and I asked was everything ok and she just smiled and said perfect!!! She left and a while later I was called back and as soon as I heard My LO's heart beat I broke into tears because I cannot imagine that 20 mins or more of pure terror she must have felt.... The nurse helped me calm down and assured me as well as she could that my and her LO's are perfectly fine!!!!
I just wanted to share that!!!
