We heard the heartbeat today! Its funny because the doctor says he tells people to expect to hear it first around seven weeks at the earliest! Since I knew the date of conception, the age of our little one is right on the mark. I wasn't expecting to hear it so imagine me and D's surprise when the doctor flipped the switch and we heard that rapid, unmistakable sound of life. I saw a tear in the big fella's eye. I'll never forget it. We were so happy.
Too bad I had to go to work immediately thereafter. Sucks.
What Baby is up to: Growing like crazy, baby is starting to sprout eyes, ears, nose, cheeks and chin. Those little hands and feet- still webbed like paddles- might wiggle by week's end, the heart is beating (almost twice as fast as yours!), and blood is starting to circulate.
