Still pregnant

I saw the nurse at my doctor's office first thing this morning. She was able to find the heartbeat way down low near my pubic bone. It measured around 160. My next appointment is on tuesday. At that point I will be 12 weeks.

Would you consider renting/buying a fetal heart rate doppler? We got ours online...listen for the hb every day. Glad all is well. if you do order one, make sure you get the jelly with it too.

I thought about buying one of those heartrate monitors, but my husband talked me out of it. He thought that if I was unable to find the heartbeat on my own, I would flip out, and I think he was right. As I'm sure you've found out with your nurse, it's a bit of an art to find that sucker when you're only 12 weeks pregnant. It might backfire and make you more anxious.

Woot! I'm with LisainSK. Maybe wait a few more weeks so you don't get anxious if you can't find it.

I am so happy for you! I think it is great that you are getting help to reduce your stress and anxiety. I hope you are able to get to a place where you can start to really enjoy the pregnancy and look forward to holding that beautiful baby in your arms.

Don't let anyone else's opinion about taking meds during pregnancy bother you. They don't know your story and your needs. You need to do what is right for you. I think reducing the stress and anxiety is certainly more beneficial to baby than not taking the meds.

'I think reducing the stress and anxiety is certainly more beneficial to baby than not taking the meds.' I agree with this ... :))
