150 bpm




Today I had my 14 and 6/7 week doctor’s appointment (meaning, I am exactly 15 weeks along tomorrow with Baby Bean). I woke up feeling the strangest thing – I was lying on my back with my hand on my lower abdomen, and I pressed down slight to feel the bulge. I thought, for a brief few seconds, that I could feel Baby Bean’’s heartbeat under the palm of my hand. It was considerably faster than my own heartbeat, and I was very excited. I’m not sure if it was my imagination or if it truly was Baby Bean right underneath my layers of skin and his/her amniotic fluid.

So when I went to the doctor, I asked Dr. Hall if it was my imagination, and she smiled and said it probably was. :P Or that I was feeling my own heartbeat. She said it wasn’t possible at this early stage to be able to “feel” Bean’s heartbeat just yet, and that the baby has a lot of room right now to swim around in the amniotic sac. Well, then. I don’t care what she says, I could have sworn I felt Bean’’s heartbeat! :P

In other news, she used the doppler again and we were able to hear Bean’s heartbeat. It was so loud, and so fast. 150 beats per minute now. I love hearing that little flickering heart go. I just love. it. It’s the highlight of my prenatal doctor visits.
