Unfortunately the before I found out I was pregnant, my normal OBGYN passed away. He delivered all four of our girls and I was forced to change doctors. At this new doctor he hasn't been able to find the heart beat easily. It was scary at our 12 week appt and that's why I had the ultrasound, so when I went to my check up this week I was more prepared for the possibility of it being difficult again but hoping for a quick find instead. He again couldn't find the heart beat and suggested my placenta being in the way, but after the long wait for my appt and needing to wait 30 minutes for the ultrasound tech, he tried again and we found it at 134. 

I'm not sure what to think about the placenta being in the way, but my next appt is for 20 weeks and I'll have my gender scan as well which is also the time they look for abnormalities and will check out my placenta in detail to see if it's in the way or baby is just super shy of anything approaching it! 

Be on the look out for my gender post probably December 16 since my appt is 15th. I may wait until my 20 week update December 18. I haven't decided yet :)
