Baby's Heartbeat at 13 Weeks

Well, it's no longer a secret (not like it really ever was;-) ). Since I am a few days away from being in my second trimester, I decided to make the grand announcement on facebook. So, the few people that didn't know, know and the few people who kept my secret (not you Grandma, lol) can shout it from the rooftops now. This week was another amazing one for a few reasons. First, most of my pregnancy sickness has gone away (however, the heartburn is in full swing) and it's so nice to not feel sick all day!

Secondly, I had another Dr.'s appointment yesterday and got to hear our little one's heartbeat! I cannot even describe the feeling I had when I heard it. This whole thing is so surreal to me that I still don't fully believe it. So, when I get to see or hear tangible proof that there's a little baby in there, it is amazing beyond belief. I actually recorded the Dr. getting the heartbeat and am posting it at the end of this blog. It's kinda funny because every time you hear a "whoosh" sound, it's the baby moving--and it was doing it a lot! The Dr. even remarked that it was pretty active. This correlates with how during the ultrasound I said it was moving it's tiny little arms around a lot. Something about this just makes me smile. It's like the fact that it's active and moving just makes me feel like it already has a little personality. Who knows, it might already be training to be a little cheerleader or a ball player!! Anyway, here's the clip:
