    I've got my appointment tomorrow, and can't for the life of me remember what happens on this one.

    I'm presuming it's just a normal check-up, but will she try and find the heartbeat or is it too early for her?

    Not sure what they are like in other hospital but I had a scan around then and it was just a scan no heartbeat. I got to hear it in my normality scan yesterday which is normally about 20 weeks for people. Mine was 23 weeks as it was that busy there.

    I had my 16 week appointment 2 weeks early for some reason, and I got to hear Bubba's heartbeat (it was lovely! :D) though M/W did say we might not find it. Good luck! xx

    Well, I heard the heartbeat!! :happydance::happydance::happydance:

    140 BPM and sounded like a train! :happydance:

    Also had my bloods taken for the triple test. I thought it was best to be prepared at my age. No matter what the results say, there's no doubt about us going ahead with this pregnancy, but we just want to know as much as possible. Got to go back in 2 weeks for the results.
