Rythm of the Beat

We heard the baby's heartbeat for the first time yesterday! How to explain the feelings that come with that? Is it even possible to to do so? I was wowed. I mean, there was this tiny little glimmer of doubt in me at times. I would have to ask myself, am I really pregnant? Obviously, morning sickness, bloating, and all that lovely stuff were sure signs and I especially hoped that I wasn't simply gaining weight! There is just something so mind blowing about hearing that little thumping and it finally becoming REAL! I couldn't stop giggling (making it difficult for our doctor to keep track of our little guy or gal) and you should have seen Matt's huge grin! So adorable. I love seeing him so excited.

By the way, the heart rate was 140:) Try guessing the sex around that one!


  1. It's a beautiful thing! And it really does make the fact that you are carrying a precious baby within you that much more believeable :)

    I'm forgetting...does 140 bpm lean more toward the girl side or the boy side?? (Honestly, I should remember, but I don't!)

  2. I'm told it's smack-dab in the middle! I am gaining, not only in my stomache, so there's one more point to chalk up for a girl!
