Re: heard heartbeat today/ went to the doctor
I'd swear I felt the first faint flutters when I was about 8-10 weeks. I am now almost 20 weeks and the feelings have just gotten stronger. Its certainly possible (likely) that they were just "stuff" and not the baby, but I am very in tune with my body and could even feel ovulation in the past, which is smaller by far than my little alien was!! So who is a doc to tell us whats going on inside our very own bodies???
It may just be intestinal stuff...but it could also be your baby making him/herself known. So I say enjoy it!!
