    So today was the day I was so worried about this week, I know I had seen the baby's little heart flickering away at the 12 week scan but that's not enough to assure you everything is okay 4 weeks down the line!

    So today, the midwife found the heartbeat pretty quickly and said that we have a happy, healthy, strong little baby in there! So happy, was so worried as I'd smoked near to 20 cigarettes yesterday due to stress! I know, bad me but at least the baby is still okay!

    Not smoking near as much ever again! Xxx

    I saw midwife at 15 weeks and heard heartbeat but seems like ages till next scan. As I have no movement and feel a lot better its hard to think I'm still pregnant. Although looking at me and my awful heartburn to reassure me.

    I've only had very little movement, only felt a few flutters now and then about 4 times. But for the past two days I've felt nothing! X

    After a couple of weeks of baby bouncing roind like a nutter. The last couple of days ive felt hardly anything. And it gets pretty worrying. But thelovely ladies here have reasured me that baby is ok and could be having a growth spurt. Little Monkey already ;)

    Im glad your appt went well. My midwife picked up the heartbeat straight away, spot on. She didnt even have to move the monitor haha. It kinda felt like baby was telling us it was still here haha. Xxx

As although I saw the heartbeat at my scan a few weeks ago I'm always worrying that baby is okay - especially when I haven't had any movement yet, :eek:oo: - glad your mind has been put at rest, :) xx

    Aww! MrsLG when you get movement you'll sure as hell know about it haha. I found myself talking to my tummy today cos the baby was just wriggling like mad and all I could feel was rumbles and bubble popping haha! It feels really funny and kinda tickles but it is so nice to feel. I never thought I'd feel it this early, although I am almost 17 weeks! :)

    Are you finding out what you're having? Xxx

    When is your 20 week scan? I've just noticed we're due on the exact same date haha! :) I couldn't have bought a doppler so soon, I'd have been worrying if I didn't hear anything. Did you hear it at 12 weeks?!

    Also, are you finding out the sex on your 20 week scan? :) xxx
