Friday Sept 5th I had my first real Doctor's appointment. If you have talked to me about the doctor already you know what I'm saying real. I had an apointment near the beginning of August and had high expectations I guess. But they only took us into an office and asked us our family medical history and sent us away. They didn't even weigh me or anything at all. So I was kinda annoyed and still wondering if things were ok. I thought that appointment would give me some relief of the worry but it didn't do anything. Plus I knew my next appointment wasn't until Sept 5th and that felt like so long to wait.
But the day finally came. It was so amazing. The appointment itself was really quick but she said everything was great and looked completely normal and good. The best part was that we heard our baby's heartbeat. Richard said it was one of the coolest things he has ever heard. :-) She pointed at my stomach and said we should be able to hear it right here. As soon as she put the thing on we could hear it right away, loud and clear, and very fast and steady. Not much else to say about it, except it was so cool. I wish I could still hear it and listen to it. :-)
Its so amazing that its only the size of a Kumquat this week, and weighs less than an ounce, but we can still hear the heartbeat. God is so amazing, and we are learing so much more about his work of creation through finding out about our baby. Its so cool! :-)
