At my second appointment (13 weeks) I was able to hear my baby's heartbeat. It really solidified the fact that there is a little life in there. Not that I wasn't taking all necessary precautions and vitamins after the 3 (2 at home and a blood test at the hospital) positive pregnancy tests, but as a first time mom-to-be with really no morning sickness or hardcore symptoms (I consider myself lucky) it was really the eye opener! It was such a magical sound and emotional moment,


I had my ultrasound yesterday at 6 Weeks 0 Days and they said the baby was too small to hear the heart beat. I did get to see the beats on the monitor though!
