    Well my mw always said she wouldnt try to find babies hb until 24wks as doesn't like to scare if they can't find anything.I went in begging as I hear it everyday and just wanted her to hear it.we had a medical student in with us aswell so mw said "ok student will try for u".well instantly I thought "that probe is to low,ur b listening to my clit in a min" (sorry tmi) so I said he normally hides abit to the right and higher so she asked me to point it out roughly.I went all mum like on her by taking the Doppler and saying I'll find it lol instantly found baby and my mw couldn't stop laughing saying I wouldn't need them soon....maybe I shouldve let her poke around abit longer first lol xx

    HA! This reminds me of my appointment last week. My doc was searching to high for baby and I told him I really think baby is on my bladder and he kept saying no it just feels that way. He pulled out the portable scan cart and low and behold there baby was right ontop of my bladder!

    Sometimes they really should just listen to us huh?

    They search different women daily,every woman has different shapes and every baby will b in a different place so why can't they accept that sometimes we know better lol xx
