Today, I had an appointment with my new midwife, Jan. I thought she was great, but the best part was that I got to hear the heartbeat for the first time! It was so amazing and made things even more real than the ultrasound did. It sounded strong, HEALTHY, and fast. Jan says it was around 150 bpm. I’m finally starting to let my guard down and get excited. I just can’t believe this is finally happening for us. I’m going to be a mom!!
PS- My sister and cousin have loving nicknamed the baby Tiny. As in Tiny Tow. Matt and I love it, so looks like we’ve got a “name” until we learn the sex of the baby! 🙂
PPS- looks like I have another ultrasound in about 2 weeks to screen for birth defects.
