12 weeks and 5 days! I heard the heartbeat!

I just got back from the OB. I heard the heartbeat! I was so nervous. I guess it's all psychological. I associate the OB's office with my miscarriage in February. I get so nervous and tense that my blood pressure goes up (it's usually around 100/70.) The doctor put the doppler on my tummy and right away we could hear the heartbeat! Woo Hoo! I feel so much more relaxed now. He didn't tell me the rate of the heartbeat. He was using a doppler that didn't have the numbers on it. Mental note... make sure they have one with numbers next time. He said it sounded very good and very strong. Good enough for me. =) Next appointment is August 20th. Can't wait! =)
