    Had OB appt today- We heard the heartbeat!!

    Nothing more reassuring than hearing that sweet sound! I honestly did even feel officially pregnant until today! I'm jealous of all you ladies that get early ultrasounds and get to see your babies early on. We have to wait four more weeks until we get our FIRST, and possibly our ONLY ultrasound of the entire pregnancy! I was so spoiled last time and because we had twins, we had probably 10 u/s or more!

    Also, dh and I are both going for genetic testing/counseling because dh's sister has a little boy with Cystic Fibrosis and although we didn't get it done last preganacy, this time around, our insurance covers it! We just want to find out if either of us are carriers.

    What a wonderful sound that little heartbeat is to hear! Keep us updated on the genetic testing, that is good that the ins covers it.

    Congrats on hearing the heartbeat, that is so nice and reassuring isn't it? Did the Dr. even "look around" for another one at all? I bet you can't wait till the u/s and see your little one!!!

    Wow! I can't imagine just having one u/s! That being said, my ob couldn't hear the baby's h/b on his doppler my last visit so we ended up doing a u/s. Everything was fine, but those were some stressful minutes!! I'm so glad that everything sounded great.

    Congrats!!! We should meet up sometime and I'll bring my doppler so we can look for the 2nd HB!!!! LOL

    I can't believe no u/s yet. I would think with a history of natural twins that they would be curious. So you are still holding out on the baby's sex right? My u/s is in 3 weeks and DH is offically banned from coming!!!! I do not want to know and I am afraid he will cave and look on his own! We must stay strong together!!
