    So she sent me to the antenatel clinic for a scan and all is well. They think baby could of been hiding behind the placenta, but it does have a heartbeat and was wriggling around!!

    good news.

    My MW always used to warn me that it might take her some time to find the HB in my earlier visits and it can be quite nerve wracking whilst your waiting for that familiar fast thud thuds. Glad it all went well.
