Minor Freak Out...

I had my regular monthly check up yesterday and the doctor couldnt find the heart beat on the doppler. I had to go to labor and delivery to get a sonogram, Thank GOD the heart beat was there! His back was facing up which apparently shields the heart beat sometimes from the doppler.  


I just wanted to share so if anyone ever goes through this they can have some hope and not automatically assume the worst.

That must have been so scary.  I'm so glad everything is okay!!!  I've heard (and know people) that said it took a while t find the HB on the doppler.  I'm sure you were happy to get anther glimpse at baby :)

Yes kblove, he looks huge now! And he was being stubborn and had his legs crossed so we couldn't confirm it was a boy.

Ugh I hate that! Both times my midwife has listened to the heartbeat on the Doppler it takes a minute or two for her to find it. So of course I'm silently panicking until I hear it.. Haha glad everything is ok :)

OMG! I am so happy things worked out!  I would have freaked out too!


I did have this one friend who was absolutely devastated when her doc told her that at 13 weeks, her baby did not have a heartbeat. They did an u/s on her they couldn't find it.  They then scheduled a D&C for her in a few days.  My friend cried during the wait.  When she went in, they put her under and when she woke up they told her they found her baby.  Apparently, she had huge fibroids that were blocking the baby's heartbeat!  She was so happy but still upset at the situation bc that was definately an emotional rollercoaster that they put her through.

OMG I would have freaked out!  My last midwife appointment the baby was "running wild" as she put it and had a hard time getting a good reading and I think I asked her like 8 times if everything was actually ok haha.  It's the scariest thing ever.  Thanks for the heads up on the situation because I know I panic over everything!

Without a doubt that has to be one of the scariest things to ever experience. I wouldve lost it!


Thank God your little boy is fine.
