Yay!!! Heard the heart beat!

I haven't been able to hear the heartbeat at the ob's
office yet. I was told due to my stomach chub and the placenta being on top an on
the front of my uterus the doppler wouldn't pick it up until 20w or later.
Well today at 15w the ob found it!!!!

The nurse had tried and couldn't. Even though I knew what I was told it made
me a little sad and anxious. Then an ob who I don't normally see saw me today. He said that he wanted to try and he found it!!!! God is so good! I was
sad that I haven't been able to have to many reassurances during this pregnancy, and then my spirit was so lifted by that little heart beat :)

I\'ve had 3 external ultra sounds...saw the heart beat on those, but I\'m talking about just the Doppler monitor. That hasn\'t worked yet until today. Ob offices around here don\'t have u/s machines...you have to get a script and go to a center or hospital. I\'m excited that I can have that extra reassurance at each visit though.
