He had me hop up on the table so he could listen to the heartbeat. He moved the fetal doppler heart rate monitor around and around and around....he was quiet and wasn't saying anything. My heart was beginning to pound and my palms were sweating. Something seemed wrong and I had a panicky feeling set in. He looked at me and could tell I was worried. He told me he wasn't able to find the heart rate so he wanted to do an ultrasound. He reassured me that everything was fine and that sometimes it is hard to find a heart beat with the hand held doppler.
