Yesterday was a very special day for us.  We had our very first appointment with our Midwife, and we got to listen to our growing baby’s heartbeat!  She was looking for it for quite a while, almost thought I might need to come back in a week to recheck, but she wasn’t about to give up easily….and then there it was, the very fast-paced sound of a little horse racing.  She turned up the volume on the doppler and I cried like a baby.  Ethan was there too, and he was really curious as to why mommy was crying and what all the excitement was about.

I feel like it is real now, there really is something in there:)  Oh joy!
