Hullo fellow June mommies!

I just got back from my very first midwife appointment and have exciting news - she asked me if I wanted to check with a Doppler since I was almost 11weeks (although she cautioned me that she may not be able to find it which is *normal* and doesn't want me to worry) but I said sure!

And she found it

So I just heard our little bean's heartbeat for the first time today - 150 heartbeats per minute! I'll have an ultrasound sometime next week for screening purposes but I was just so happy to hear the proof of our baby's strength, it will tide me over until our next appointment...although the DH will be sooo jealous that he missed it, tee hee hee. I actually didn't think they would check this appointment and he couldn't get the morning off - but he'll hear it next time since it's an evening appointment.

Next big step - telling the parents! We are having dinner with them on the 23rd and will be telling them then, stay tuned!
