Today is February 25. I said in this post that this day would probably come sooner than I realized, and I was right. But now my next appointment is March 24, and yet again … THERE’S AN ETERNITY BETWEEN NOW AND THEN!!!!
We heard the heartbeat. Kyle’s mom came to town for the “occasion” and we all filled up the exam room with “oohs” and “ahhs” and “Did you hear that!?”s. (Ok, that part was mostly me!)
We recorded the audio, and I’d love to find a way to post it (I have an mp3), but I just don’t have time today to figure out how to do that. So if someone has a recommendation of a way I can upload the audio to put on here, I’m open for suggestions.
So it took a few minutes for my midwife to find the heartbeat. She warned me that it might, but I was still just a little anxious. And then suddenly, there it was. And I reacted by moving around so that we lost the audio briefly. But no worries. She found it pretty easily and then for a few short seconds, the sound of the heartbeat — our baby’s heartbeat — filled the room. And we all giggled.
So now we wait. Next appointment, to check the heartbeat and measure some other stuff, Tuesday, March 24. AND THEN we get to schedule the “Find out the sex of the baby” appointment for two weeks after that.
