I am on cloud 9

I had my dr appt. today. They were soooo backed up today. My appt. was scheduled at 10am .. but I didn't get seen until 12 o'clock. The dr. tried to listen to the heartbeat and couldn't hear it .. which I wasn't surprised by being that I am plus sized. With Chip they tried at 12 weeks and couldn't hear it. So they brought in the ultrasound machine (the abdominal one .. apparently something was up with the vaginal one) and started the ultrasound. It took a minute or so (and it was fuzzy) but suddenly we saw this little tiny baby and all of a sudden it jumped!!! The Dr. said "Well I can't really see the heartbeat because of it being fuzzy but that is obviously one alive baby!" and then it did a flip, and then another jump. I have never been so thrilled in my whole life. I feel like a 50lb weight has been removed off me. I think we are going to be okay this time!!! I can't imagine any baby doing flips not being healthy right?

Whoo hoo! That is great news!!! Don't chalk it all up to being plus-size though, I have a retroverted uterus and they couldn't hear my DD Chloe's HB with a doppler unitl I was 14+ weeks. But I got weekly u/s ;-). Glad your pregnancy is progressing so well!
