As per my regular blog I met with some of the forum members and Janne brought along her Doppler machine so we could listen to the baby’s heartbeat. I have been able to hear the baby’s heartbeat with the obstetrician but it was awesome to be able to share this with Alex.
We captured this moment (55.5 meg) with the video function on my digital camera.
It was a lot of fun to be able to hear the heartbeat, although Vicki kept teasing me about there being two babies (to which I kept trying to hit her)! There is definitely only one, to which Janne assured me that my uterus is at the right height (at my belly button) for one baby.
Then my belly embarrassed me by making some tummy rumbles, which through the Doppler sounds very ……….er……..ahem, well……..you can hear what I mean for yourself on the video. Just go easy on me, it was just a tummy rumble ok!
