Music to my ears
In case you don't know what you're looking at- its our baby's heartbeat. Isn't it pretty? Know what's even better than looking at it? Listening to it! At first, Dr. H said that we should only be able to see the heart flicker. That we shouldn't expect to hear it. He tried to get it with the Doppler, and we DID hear it. At first, I thought it was my heart. Dr. H said that he thought it was the baby's. He measure the rate, and sure enough it was!
I won't get into everything else we talked about. Mainly because I can't stomach sitting up for very long periods. I'm trying to be thankful for my ever present morning sickness, but its a struggle to be so sick and raise two kids (and nanny for a third). We do go back in next thursday for another ultrasound.
Thank you, Jesus, for my beautiful baby. Thank you that the heart is beating and that he/she is alive! Thank you for my whole body pregnancy symptoms! Amen!
Here's the little peanut again.
