This morning we got to hear the little nugget's heartbeat.
I had been worrying that something would go wrong, and we wouldn't be able to find it. But it was there. Heart beating at 150 bpm. Brad thought it was too fast and asked the mid-wife if the baby was running a marathon in there. But that's just how baby's do.
Baby's 12 weeks along now, and about the size of a lime (according to my iphone app). At the end of this week, I'm out of the dreaded 1st trimester!
That doesn't mean a whole lot for me physically, I haven't had many of the "typical" pregnancy symptoms (no nausea or anything, just exhaustion for me). But mentally this is a huge weight off my shoulders. Before the 12th week, the baby seemed to small. Like it could fall right out and I wouldn't notice!
After today's appointment, we scheduled the next two appointments, one in September and one in October. During the October visit, we'll find out if baby is a boy or girl! I can't wait!!
Also, I found this. I think it would be perfect for Brad.
