Ultrasounds are wonderful things

We got another ultrasound on the 18th. Our baby is growing right on track and it's heart is beating away. We got to see and HEAR the heartbeat this time. 167 BPM. I cannot explain how relieved I am each time they tell me the baby has a heartbeat and this time I got to hear it. It was so reassuring. God is truly blessing Ryan and I.

We Have a Heartbeat

I got an early ultrasound because of some minor spotting. Our beautiful baby has a heartbeat of 119 BPM. It's absolutely amazing!! When the tech turned the screen and said here's your baby's heartbeat I was so overjoyed and relieved. We also got a picture of our little bean. I'll post it later.

First OB Visit

Nothing too special to report on. I went to the OB and met with a nurse practitioner. We picked out my doctor and talked about my medical history. I got a little goodie bag full of stuff from here. It has prenatal vitamin samples and lots of reading materials in it. After meeting with her, I went to have my blood drawn. The tech was much better than the one at the family practice. I didn't even bruise this time!

The exciting news is that our first ultrasound is scheduled for August 18th! I am so pumped! I can't wait to see the little bean on that monitor and hopefully see if not hear a strong heartbeat!
