Week 11.5 (ish) check-up

I had my 11/12 week check-up today.   All went well.   Now I get to go have 50 tubes of blood drawn :(   Probably Friday...   Doctor's happy with my progress and on a very positive and totally unexpected note....we were able to hear the baby's heartbeat!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!   I really wasn't expecting it for a number of reasons:
1.   It's still early, being only 11 weeks   and 2 days.
2.   We weren't able to get The Professor's or Doodlebug's heartbeats at the 12 week check-up.
3.   Big belly.

But the doctor was persistent, and through some manipulation of my uterus, we were able to briefly hear it.   He didn't hold it for too long (didn't want to hurt me), so no count, but long enough to hear it!

BTW...he's performed several successful forth C-sections lately.

AND...he was happy to hear about the queasiness!   Said it's a sign of a strong pregnancy.  (I didn't really have any with the other pregnancies)


  1. Oh, I'm so glad to hear all is well and that you got to hear the heartbeat already! So awesome!

    You and your wee one continue to be in my daily prayers.

    God bless you, Kelly!

  2. yeah for heart tones and queasy belly at 11 weeks. I hear that it a good sign of sticky pregnancy. Best of luck.
