Hi Girls, I just wanted to share. I rented a fetal Doppler and yesterday I received it. As soon as I got home I tried it and couldn’t find the heartbeat, I didn’t get worried because I knew I had no idea what I was doing. So I read the instructions and it said that if you are earlier then 12 weeks (I’m 10) a full bladder may help in locating the HB, so I put it away and drank 2 bottles of water, about an hour later my bladder was so full, so I ran upstairs and tried it again. I got the HB right away!!! It was AMAZING, the rate showed at 180 BPM. WOW!!! Thursday I go for a prenatal appointment with my doctor, he doesn’t have a Doppler so I’m glad I ordered one. Thanks for reading!!

S42 ------ where have you been today? How are you? I thought 180 was kinda high myself, but there was a HB and that's the main thing!!!! The normal rate is between 120-180, so I'm glad that I’m in the norm. And they also say that depending on how active the baby is at that time may increase the HB as well, I had just finished dinner and I was so excited, my own HB was racing!!! It was amazing S42 I can't wait for you to get yours so that we can compare stories!!!

Food really makes them move :) I can't wait until the 3rd trimester to feel those kicks after meals. I've been here girly. I've been sleeping a lot and feeling like c___p lately. I guess thats a good thing. Yesterday at lunch I wasn't really hungry, which is strange because lately if I don't eat every 2 hours ish I feel c___ppy like I will throw up any second. So I barely ate anything for lunch and that kind of worried me, but i was starving before dinner time and this morning when I woke up so I feel a bit better. I think my problem is that I'm hungry BUT I don't like anything I have. Strange. I didn't want anything in my house this morning (and we just went grocery shopping) so I forced myself to eat toast and I threw it up.Throwing up bread is gross. Anyhow, I get my doppler on Dec. 19th!!! Soo far away.. . . yes your probably having a girl! :)

S42, that's funny becuase somedays I will be so hungry all day and other days the thought of eating makes me gag. I feel bad when I don't eat, but if I force it, I will throw up, so I choose not to eat and then I'll wake up in the middle of the night starving.

I went to hear my baby's hear rate at 10 weeks and 4 days.. couldn't hear it, so they gave me an ultrasound, i actually got to see my baby's arms move, they said that was unusual for 10 weeks the heart rate was 170!!
