Today was appointment #2 for Jenn.
We were going to get to hear the baby's heart beat. We got to the doctor's office. Jenn was nervous. She didn't know what to expect.
Scale. Down 3 pounds.
Inside the room. A part of me was excited, part of me nervous, 100% of me was ready to capture the sound of a tiny heartbeat on my voice recorder so I could have it forever.
Doppler heartbeat goo, then the heartbeat monitor. Nothing but Jenn's pounding heart.
The doctor left to get a ultra sound machine. Jenn and I intently looked at the monitor on the machine. I don't know if we thought we were going to know what we were looking at, but we looked anyway.
It took a while, but we got to SEE the heartbeat.
I can't begin to tell you how awesome it was. For the first time, I am at a loss for words. I scanned the photos in, so take a look.
I wish I knew how to edit photos and point out what you are looking at, but alas, I am unable.
Stay tuned, there will be many more adventures to be had in this thing called pregnancy.
I have been off the grid for the weekend. I am writing a blog to tell you about that, but I figured I would drop this off while I continue to make head way on the other blog.
Yarn and... teeth.
