Hearts beat

Last night for the first time (at home!!) we were able to hear little Pooh's heartbeat!  Chris got us a doppler for Valentine's day and up until now it hadn't been picking anything up, still too early.  We made the decision only to try it out on Sundays until the first time we were finally able to hear it, as to not make ourselves crazy with worrying about not hearing it yet.  Well, I know that last night was not Sunday but we decided to give it a shot anyway and much to our surprise after a few minutes of moving the doppler around trying to find the right spot, we heard that wonderful, comforting sound!!  And just like our last OB appt, it was in the 160s.  Talk about a happy mom and dad, we were floating on a cloud the rest of the evening!  I think it will be addicting though and it will probably take all of the self control I can muster to keep me from having that thing strapped to my tummy 24/7 for the next 6-ish months!

Thank you for your kind comments on my last post.  Hope is prevailing but it is a challenge somedays.  Today and I am happy, hopeful and oh so thankful for the little life growing and beating away inside me.

I just came across your blog, so sorry to hear about your little Harper. I lost my Liam just 2 months ago at 25 weeks+6, his heart had stopped beating also.
I am so happy to hear about your rainbow and got to hear the heartbeat. I was not aware you could by a doppler. Take care
