So I had my appt today. She had the doppler to listen to the babys heartbeat well she puts it on my belly and NOTHING!!  I mean dead silence so she moves it around and still NOTHING, So she says lets go to the ultrasound. By this time I am already freaking out cause thats every pregnant womens worst fear is to NOT hear that sound. So I go in and wait til she comes in to do the ultrasound and there it is the little baby just a flipping and flopping around. She was barely able to get a pic so I could see the heart beating away. Talk about a big relief. I was so scared that something had happened. But nope the baby is just a moving everywhere so it wouldn't pick it up.

That has happened to me, atleast you got an ultrasound. my doctor always says we'll get it next time and I have to wait a week.

Wow! I wonder what the deal was with the heart doppler thing? That would totally freak me out too. So glad everything's great!

I had that happen with my first. It was terrifying. Plus my office was getting a new u/s machine that day so it wasn't hooked up and they sent me to the hospital! It was the longest drive of my life. It was so horrible. She's a happy healthy 2 year old now. little booger! So glad yours turned out good as well! :)

That must have been scary! I'm glad that everything's ok tho. That happened while I was in labor w/Elijah, he moved and they couldn't find his heartbeat, but things were fine.

You poor thing!! I would TOTALLY freak b/c I use a Birthing Center and they don't do U/S so I would have had to either wait until my next appointment or go to the hospital the next day. Talk about stress! SOOOOO glad all is well with your little peanut:))
