13 weeks 3 days and Doctor Appointment

So depending on whose calculation you go by I either hit my 2nd trimester yesterday at 13 weeks 3 days or on Sunday at 13 weeks. Either way I have made it to the 2nd trimester, woo hoo!

So yesterday I had an appointment with the OB. Lets start out by saying pretty much the same as the rest, pee in a cup, step on the scale of shame(I always hate scales) and have my BP taken by a nurse. Yesterday was the 1st time I got to hear the sweetest most amazing sound in the world though. I got to hear the baby's heartbeat on the Doppler. Getting to that point was a bit of another story.

The nurse tried to get it on the Doppler and all she was picking up was mine so I started to get just a wee bit nervous. So the doctor comes in and he tries for about a minute and nothing, he is getting ready to send me for an ultrasound and the Doppler tool he is using lets out this awful high pitched squeal he says I'll be right back just stay where you are (flat on my back on a exam table holding my extra roll out of the way for him) and comes back with a different Doppler tool. Within 30 seconds he finds the heartbeat and it is a nice steady high 140's low 150's heartbeat. best sound in the world when you are 13 weeks and haven't heard or seen your baby yet!

I didn't get to go for that ultrasound I still get to wait until 18-20 weeks for that but I know my little bud is in there and doing well.

Here is this weeks "bump" picture to show where I am at now :)
