I can't even describe how good it feels to be here! I literally still pinch myself daily, get all emotional and teared up when I think about it. And it never gets old waking up in the morning, every morning, rolling over to Brian in the bed and saying, "___ weeks and ___ days!!!"!
We love it!
We still check for her heartbeat daily. And before anyone wonders why I'm using "she" and "her" today its because I've been using "he" since the get go and Brian and I decided we should test out how "she" feels for a while.
I keep trying to go every other day and sometimes I can do it but usually I can't.
Last night, she gave us quite the scare with the doppler. The longest it has ever taken us to find the heartbeat since that first time has literally been a minute and usually it is closer to 15 seconds! But last night she didn't want anything to do with the doppler and it took a good ten minutes before we decided to get up and take a break because we were both going a bit crazy. Five mintues later we came back to it and within 30 seconds there she was, beating away!
HUGE sigh of relief.
But I think I'm done with the doppler for a few days. I don't want to be that scared again!
I say that, I'll probably cave and do it again tonight or in the morning!
I have another appointment set for Monday, including an ultrasound, this time with a MFM. I'm not too sure what the appointment will entail but they did say they'd do a "detailed" ultrasound so I'm excited!
