heard heartbeat today/ went to the doctor

Hello well I went to the doctor today and heard the heartbeat it was 140. hope thats a girl heartbeat.
I thought I would get a sonogram next month but he said I have to wait 2 months for that. sucks

He said there is no way that I am feeling movement this early but I swear I am. he said baby is so small there is no forct behind it to feel.
I say poopy on him I still think I feel "her"
I was wondering the gals who are much further along when did you first feel the baby move?
I know im not the only one that feels this way in out little august group

Re: heard heartbeat today/ went to the doctor

I know I was feeling baby movement at 12 weeks with this pregnancy. NO One can tell me that is not what it was. You are the Mommy and you know when your baby is moving. If you say you have felt "her" move then I am sure you have. I am 16 weeks now, and I feel the same movement only a little stronger.

Re: heard heartbeat today/ went to the doctor

I thought I could feel the baby move at 10-12 wks, but my doctor told me it was my intestines moving and "stuff" shifting to accomodate my growing uterus. I guess i just listened to him, but as mentioned in the previous post, that feeling intensified as I got further along. I don't know what to tell you...it could be? Congrats! -J

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!!

Re: heard heartbeat today/ went to the doctor

I don't care what the doctors say, nobody knows your body like you do. Try to take their "expertise" with a grain of salt.

Congrats on hearing the heartbeat! It must be and incredible sound. <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif">

Re: heard heartbeat today/ went to the doctor

I figured I felt it at about 13 -14 weeks and I will be 15 tomorrow. I did SEE a kick at 15 weeks 4 days with baby number 1. It looked like someone trying to escape my lower abdomen. That must have explained her long legs that she can run like the wind with now as she approaches 4 years old!

Re: heard heartbeat today/ went to the doctor

Hey Eeyore,

That is sooo awesome to hear the <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/heart.gif"> beat isn't it?!!!!! As far as feeling movement, someone before said once you are about 12 wks you should be able to feel the baby, but they don't really tell you that so you don't freak out too soon. Of course it will be very subtle, but if you are in tune with your body and are paying attention you can definitely feel the baby.

I know I have since about 13 wks or so - just mainly butterflies, but then the last week or so I have been getting a few subtle bumps and the popping feeling twice now.

So don't listen to your doc because they don't know your body. My doc asked me if I have felt the baby yet and when I said yes they weren't surprised at all. You listen to what your heart is telling you!!!

God bless,
Angel <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/angel.gif">

Re: heard heartbeat today/ went to the doctor

My only hunch is that this child will be mellow.....or is that a wish. From the first u/s pick, though he/she was very active, I get this feeling of calm and mellowness looking at the pic. I DO say him and he alot though.

Re: heard heartbeat today/ went to the doctor

Im due July 9th, and I heard the heartbeat in my 14th week. I'll finally get to see what my little one looks like in 3wks, but I don't think that I feel a thing--dont listen to all the doctor says, they know pretty much everything but what you are feeling inside.
