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.

Congrats to you!!!

My name is Cathy - I'm 14 1/2 weeks pregnant with my 5th baby (the other 4 have ALL been girls - so we're hoping this one is a boy!)...

I'm writing to you as I share your morning sickness dilemma! HA! (THAT is an understatement!!!) I am in the bathroom 10+ times a day... night... morning... afternoon... ALL DAY/NIGHT LONG. I'm sure you've heard too that it's a sign of a healthy pregnancy... but NO FUN FOR MOMMA!!!

If you ever need to vent or just chat with someone who's been there - I'd love to talk!!
