I'm sorry, more pregnancy stuff


Feel free to tune out as desired to the pregnancy channel I can't seem to turn off...

But we heard our baby's heartbeat today! I would think after having done this twice I wouldn't be so excited, but it is just as exciting as the first time, and possibly more so, even bringing a little tear to my eye. The very fun part is that we did it at home, on the couch. Ben borrowed a little doppler do-dad and a bottle of ultrasound fluid from work and we found it ourselves. It was like a treasure hunt! And we found the prize, at 168 beats a minute..

the same as the two little boys born before this one.

If this isn't a boy, I'll eat my shorts.

*image is one of my fav fav favs from yan photo. and you really should just go to her blog and look at it because it's so much more beautiful as huge as she has it on her site. Ahhh! I'm going to have one of those!

oh my goodness, sweetest picture of all time. don't know how i have missed that one!

i can't believe you heard the baby's heartbeat at home! the first time we were supposed to hear ours at the doctor's office, they couldn't find it. which was kind of sad/scary. but then they decided to just do an early ultrasound to make sure everything was ok. and it was. and it was really exciting to see that little critter. i just heard the heartbeat for the first time last week. but they just gave me a rough estimate of how fast it was. no accurate count.

and please keep posting pregnancy stuff. because i feel self-conscious doing it on my own blog, but i love reading about yours!
