We heard you today....

You have now been growing inside me for 12 weeks! I'm starting to look a little less chunky and a little more pregnant. The morning sickness has gone away and now I pretty much eat everything in you can grow and be strong. In a few more weeks I will probably start to feel you move and then this whole thing will be even more real.

I had my 12 week check-up today and all is well. Daddy came with me because after 12 long weeks of waiting...we finally got to hear you. At first we couldn't hear anything and I started to get worried. Thankfully the doctor said that was normal and to just give it a few minutes. Then....there you were. Next to my right hip bone and you are already so strong. We heard your heart beat and it was hard at first but then we figured out what it sounded like and I swear that it was one of the most beautiful sounds in the world. 152 beats per minute!! You are right on track with your growth and the doctor said I was doing great taking care of you!

Your daddy and I just want you to know how much we love you already. We can't wait to feel you move and hear that heartbeat get stronger and stronger. We can't wait to hold you in our arms and watch you grow. You are already so loved little one and I'm sure you will continue to amaze Daddy and me everyday for the rest of our lives.
