Quick and easy appointment...pee in a cup, take the blood pressure, weigh in, and see the doctor (~5min).
The doctor found the heartbeat very quickly, which was cool to hear. In addition, I bought a Sonoline B 3MHz Doppler from eBay (brand new) last week, and it arrived today. So I paid attention to where the doctor could hear the heartbeat, and I tried at home. It definitely took some time, and I found my own heartbeat many times and struggled to find the baby's. BUT I found it, and it was cool to hear. http://qik.com/37821342/98a22868 I need to figure out how to get the video off my phone since the file is too large for me to send it to my email.
I also talked to my doctor more about being Rh-...so I requested that he send my husband to get his blood tested for type/Rh since AJ doesn't know it. No need to get a shot if AJ is also RH-, though only 15% of the population is, and AJ believes he is A+...but doesn't know for sure. He's not big on having blood drawn, but come on! I gave 9 vials already, though I was a regular blood donor. It's better for him to give the blood and know his type than for me to blindly receive the shot at 28 weeks. However, I am thinking statistics are against me, and I will receive the shot, but he can go through a little discomfort, too! At least he can have a beer afterwards!
