Tuesday, June 16, 2009
On June 15, 2009 we heard our baby's heartbeat for the first time! Since I am still early (10 weeks) the doctor said we may not hear it at this appointment, but as soon as she started the doppler we heard it loud and clear! It clocked in at 170 beats per minute (normal and healthy according to the doctor) and she said my risk of miscarriage has now dropped significantly! Yeah, now I can worry about everything else that could go wrong! I'm already a nervous mom! I've also put on 6 pounds since my last appointment, right square in my belly. My doctor said this is on the high side and we're hoping that it'snot going to be twins on the ultrasound!
Surprise! We found on on May 5th that we are expecting a little bundle of joy sometime around January 9, 2010. We couldn't have been more excited (or suprised!) to find out and so far the pregnancy has been very uneventful, except for my constant nausea/vomiting. Supposedly that's a sign of a healthy pregnancy, so I'll take it I guess! The pregnancy couldn't have come at a better time, since I found out shortly before school got out and I've been sleeping ever since! I am definitely looking forward to my second trimester when the sickness and exhaustion is supposed to lift!
