i'm excited, but nervous!! lol I leave in 1.5 hours and hopefully we'll get to hear the hb for the first time!! EEK!!!

***UPDATE***

There really IS a baby in there!!! HB 155. It took her a while to find it, but once she did the baby held perfectly still for quite a while so we could have a good long listen. Courtney was so excited too! She had a little mini "doll" of a 12 weeks fetus so we laid it on my belly so Courtney could see how big our baby is. She said my uterus has definitely moved up and out of my pelvis now

How exciting! I wasn't even with a midwife until 18 weeks, but at 15 weeks DH (who is a Paramedic) was able to find it with the doppler on the ambulance! So we both got to hear it then! So sweet!
I hope everything goes well! Let us know!

Courtney's sooooooo excited!! lol. She told me yesterday after seeing a TV ad that we should go to this local baby store to "buy new stuff for our new baby!" I had been telling her for a couple days that we might get to hear the heartbeat, so getting to hear it was awesome for her.

The rest of the appointment was good. We mostly talked about how I've been feeling and drew blood (joy...). After we got to talking about birth in general and how sad it is when women aren't fully informed. Somehow that led to cloth diapers and she wants to set up some classes for me to host for some of her clients taht are interested in cloth diapering She wants some biz cards and fliers or samples from me too, so that was pretty cool!
