We have a HEARTBEAT!

Finally got to hear my LO's heartbeat today at my appointment! I'm so thrilled and relieved. It was between 160-170 which is pretty fast, isn't it? Anyway, it's a HUGE weight off my shoulders. My midwife is just wonderful... She spent two hours with me answering my questions and giving me advice. I feel very comfortable with my decision to go with a midwife at the birthing center.  

Thanks for all the encouragement, ladies :smileyhappy:.. You're all so sweet.

That is fantastic!! Nothing quite like hearing your growing baby's heartbeat for the first time to ease your mind & make it all seem finally REAL! :smileyhappy:

I actually sent a video of us listening to the heartbeat to my DH and he almost started crying at work.. Haha.. So sweet! I really think it's starting to hit him that he's going to be a Daddy now and he's getting more emotional about it.

Congrats on hearing the HB! I'm so anxious to go to my own doctor's appointment next week and hear the HB. This is our first and I'm just really wanting to know what's going on in there...this wait has been killing me! I think it's great that DH is starting to get excited too, that's so sweet, I'm hoping my DH has the same reaction!
