1st OFFICIAL doctor's appointment
We had our first official appointment with my wonderful midwife yesterday! They gave me some books and lots of helpful imformation about them and pregnancy! I had to get some blood work also, which I'm a pro at since I have to do it a lot! :) We tried to pick up the baby's heartbeat with the doppler but since my silly uterus is tipped backwards, it's harder to find baby's heartbeat, we just heard mine and my massive blood flow! I was of course, nervous about it. and my midwife said I am sure everything is fine, we will try again in 2 weeks! Well of course, I couldn't wait for 2 weeks. Sleeping last night was very hard! I was feeling sick so I really did have faith that everything was okay but I wanted to be 100% sure being the "new mommy" I am. My AWESOME midwife squeezed me in for an ultrasound this morning and sure enough, baby was soooo active and very much LIVING!! Heart rate was 163!! PRAISE GOD!!! Sweet pea was waving at us and punching and kicking like crazy! We saw baby's hand wide open!! so precious!! I ate Weiner Snitzel before, maybe "she" liked it. That's right, doctor said it sounds like a little girl but we will find out on October 1st at Peek-A-Baby!! Can't wait :) Stephen & I were so relieved and teary eyed! The baby grew so much since our 6 week ultrasound, it's amazing! Such a miracle and all the glory goes to God, the Creator :) Ultrasound picture coming soon!!
