Heartbeat Fast

      We got to see our baby and hear its heartbeat for the first time on February 28th :D The experience was amazing!!!! We have been so excited for this moment. It helped make the pregnancy more real (as if the constant nausea wasn't real enough, haha). Laying on the chair and feeling the coldness of the blue ultrasound jelly being squeezed onto my stomach was so anticipating. The doctor then pulled out the ultrasound camera thingy and pressed hard on my abdomen. Instantly we heard a fast, humming sound. It was the heartbeat of our child :D It was  such a tender moment as we smiled and held each others hands.  It was as though time stood still for a few seconds. It's heartbeat sounded like that of a hummingbird. Shortly after, the doctor turned on the camera and there our child small as it could be. Our smiles intensified and it was as though we couldn't smile any bigger!! He or she was wiggling around. It's tiny little arm buds started flapping like we were being waved to :) The doctor measured the baby and found that I am right as planned...9 weeks. Making it's due date October 2, 2012.
