    Heard hb today!!

    Good news today - heard my little one's hb! The rate was around 150. I remained calm while he patiently searched for the hb. I am at the early side of hearing hb on doppler, so I tried not to panic.

    I am still freaked out about the little bit of spotting. Doc said not to worry unless it gets worse, clots, cramping or so on. I just want clean and clear toilet paper every time I pee!!! He said once you get a hb there is 95% chance of no m/c. However, I think of all the tragic stories I have heard here and that statistic falls flat.

    Hope all is well for you gals!

    Betsy,

    Congrats!!! Great to hear some good news!!! I go next week on 2/23 and am hoping we will get to hear the hb as well (I'll be almost 12w so we should, right?). We were lucky and got to hear it at our 6w u/s appointment but I am dying to hear it again.

    Take care,
    Melanie

    So happy for you Betsy! That must be so exciting! I hope I am right behind you and seeing a heartbeat on Monday...I know I will probably lose it emotionally! I've waited 8 1/2 years for this pregnancy, so my emotions will probably get the best of me!

    Congrats, Betsy! Isn't it so wonderful to hear that precious little heart just beating away?!!

    I'm hoping to receive my fetal doppler today or tomorrow so I can call my IPs and tell them I have someone who want to say "Hi" to them, and then let them hear their little one's heart just beating away!

    Hugs,

    How sweet of you to do that for them, and how fun!

    Do your IPs live close to you? How often do you have contact with them?

    I have thought I would enjoy being a surrogate, but I live in basically a rural community that would make the logistics hard. Plus, I think Dh would not think it's a good idea.

    The next best thing to hearing the heart beat, is hearing the baby cry.
    I pray you all get to hear that. We dont want anymore losses for anyone else.
    Congrats on hearing the heart beat, it is an awesome feeling.

    I am doing much better. It still all seems like such a dream/nightmare to me. I guess one good thing about it, is that the last two losses I've had have been for different reasons, and IF we decided to try again, thats a big IF, there is a better chance for success.
    ~~~~hugs all~~~~
    Your star shone brilliantly, if but a fleeting moment, etched forever in my heart. My heart ached so sadly when your light ceased to be, for me losing you, and for you, losing me.

    Thank you, Betsy! I do everything that I can so that my IPs can feel as much a part of this pregnancy as possible.

    No, we don't live close - I'm in CA and they're in MN. This couple is actually my closest set of IPs! We do talk on the phone weekly and email all the time. They'll be coming out for a visit for our Level II U/S in April. We all can't wait!

    I did receive my fetal doppler yesterday and was able to hear this little one's heartbeat at 170bpm! What a wonderful sound! I'll be calling my IPs this weekend so they can hear it as well!

    Hugs,
