Doctor Visit

I had a baby-doctor appointment this afternoon.  Everything was fine.  The baby's heartbeat was thumping away at 160 beats per minute.  Such a relief to hear that awesome little noise.  I didn't know that it could take a little bit to find it, so I started to panic when she didn't get it right off the bat.  When she found it, I started bawling.....again.  These pregnancy hormones are horrible sometimes, but I know it will all be worth it in the end.

Our next appointment isn't for about a month and the next sonogram isn't for about seven weeks.  That is when we'll get to find out the gender of the baby.  We don't really even have a preference....just a healthy baby is what we want!

*Edited to add a video I took this morning, August 18th, of the baby's heartbeat.  I bought  fetal doppler monitor for peace of mind at home.
