Blah blah blah spoke with the nurse, went through history blah blah blah
She *finally* got the doppler out, and despite my fears we could hear the h/b as soon as she put it on my belly. Nice and loud (I know that's only b/c the volume was turned up, but still). 180 bpm.
Next hurdle is the NT scan, 10/3. I'm not particularly concerned about that (yet, talk to me in ten days or so) but I am more so than for any of our previous pregnancies given that I'm now 37. But it's SO good to get past this appointment with good news instead of bad!
