The Sweetest Sound!

I had my appointment with the Nurse Practitioner at my OB Clinic today. She went through all the pregnancy things with me & then said she would try to hear the heartbeat with the Fetal Doppler. She said if for some reason she couldn't hear it, she would do an U/S to check on things. Good news, we heard the heartbeat right away, today it was around 152, she said that is perfect. She said the chance of miscarriage drops 80% once they can hear the heartbeat with Doppler. I told her about Dr. L's concerns, so they are going to send me to the Perinatal Clinic in 2-3 weeks for testing, she said someone should get in touch with me today to set that up. She said right now as far as they are concerned, they are glad the baby has a good heartbeat & that it is growing according to schedule. I have another appointment set up with the OB for 2 weeks. So, 11 weeks & counting now....Hopefully, I can keep on counting!! :) My God, what an ordeal!! I am thankful for getting this far, Yipee!!
