It is the most beautiful sound ever. I definitely teared up.
As soon as the nurse came in to listen to the heartbeat, she said, “Now, we may not be able to find it right away, but do not be alarmed. Sometimes it’s just difficult to find so early. If we can’t find it, you’ll be in the ultrasound room immediately.” It really made me feel good about things.
So she put the doppler on my stomach, and as soon as she moved it she found that beautiful little whoosh whoosh sound. The babe’s heartbeat was going at 161bpm! Such a strong little one!
I’m so happy. :)
Oh, and now I’m gone public on facebook. Everyone knows!
