Today I heard....

....my baby's heartbeat for the first time. :) I could listen to that sound all day. Being in an area so close to Loma Linda, we are surrounded by physicians and med students. Today I was visiting with a friend (her hubby is in his 2 year of residency at LL) and we were talking all about pregnancy. I mentioned that I had not had my appt. yet, and that I was anxious to hear the baby's heartbeat. Long story short...one of her hubby's friends gave them his OB doppler...it took a bit of time, but sure enough....baby's heartbeat!! She let me borrow the doppler, so of course I listened to it a few more times during Noah's nap. I can't wait for Hylke to hear it tonight!!

So fun Jodie! I will never forget the first times I heard my girls' heartbeats. Reminds me what a huge miracle birth is.

Score!! That's awesome you got to hear that before your appt. CONGRATS!!!!!! I'm so, so happy for you guys. I'm even more happy that you seem to have such a non-eventful pregnancy!! Lucky girl you are! haha What did Noah say when he heard the heartbeat?
