The nurse couldn't find the heartbeat and I kind of freaked. I then realized I had not lost the baby so the nurse was not very good at her job. The doctor came in and he found it. Still haven't felt it move, that I can say for sure anyway. I'm hoping in the next week or two that I will. If they can schedule it I will have an ultrasound on the 11th even though it's 3 days before I'm 18 weeks. I hope they will so my MIL can see it. She has heard Kieran's hear...
