158 bpm

My second doctor visit, short and sweet, was last Thursday. A little bit of waiting, a little bit of blood drawn… AND I heard baby’s heartbeat! Dr. Friedell used a handheld fetal heart monitor that amplified the lovely sound of 158 beats per minute. Guess he (or she) is really excited about something!

Jed missed out on the appointment, because of a time crunch at work.
Nyah, nyah, I heard the heartbeat! 🙂

    What a beautiful number!!! You’ll remember that one forever. Henry’s was 110, but it was a few weeks earlier. Oh, gosh. Don’t you just LOVE that sound? Couldn’t you just listen to that ch-ch-ch-ch-ch forever and ever? It’s a little person in there!

    I absolutely remember hearing your heart beat the first time- before the advent of sonograms- I just knew (and prayed) you were a girl since you sounded higher and faster than Nick had- I was SO happy! And voila! Here you are!
