Spilled the beans at 10 weeks with scratch-off tickets in the mail. They said "A special gift" then in the scratch-off circle it said "Estimated arrival May 2013!" I figured it was close enough to 3 months; I couldn't wait any longer and I sent them out with our Halloween cards!

First Positive Pregnancy Test
Well I bougt and Answer Brand early test at 9dpo, and in the light I was a 2nd white line, almost like a wet line that turned a faint pink. Called the nurse, she said to come in for a blood test, but was still a little early, but me being antsy, I wanted to know! Well blood test said negative, then the day my AF was due, took a dollar store test that morning and saw a faint 2nd line, more obvious than before! That was on 9/8. Well still not sure (due to the cheap test) I bought a digi after work that day and in less than a minute, bam! Pregnant!!!!

I think you're having a boy :) When do you find out?

I found this online:

Starting at week 5 the fetal heart will accelerate at a rate of 3.3 beats per day for the next month.

The fetal heart begins to beat at approximately the same rate as the mothers, which is 80 to 85 bpm. Below illustrates the approximate fetal heart rate for weeks 5 to 9, assuming a starting rate of 80

Week 5 starts at 80 and ends at 103 bpm

Week 6 starts at 103 and ends at 126 bpm

Week 7 starts at 126 and ends at 149 bpm

Week 8 starts at 149 and ends at 172 bpm

At week 9 the fetal heartbeat tends to beat within a range of 155 to 195 bpm.

The fetal heart rate will begin to decrease and generally will fall within the range of 120 to 160 bpm by week 12.

Yes, I pick up my heartbeat a lot on my doppler. I even pick up this weird swooshing sound that also seems to count as a heartbeat, but its not. Some days I can find the heartbeat in like 2 minutes, other days it can take up to 30!!! I first got it when I was 9w2d I believe and I was picking up 171-188 heartbeat! It's still in that range after last night.

I was hoping a boy and girl, but given it looks to be identical that probably won't happen. Lol, yes, this is my first set and I have a mix of emotions from excitement to nervousness. I am happy to hear your baby is doing well. I am trying to figure out why I can't post personal pics, I managed a Google picture, so I guess that's a start. Lol
