Say that over and over really fast. That was the sound I heard today of our baby’s heartbeat. It was the first time that I had heard that sound since October 30th and it made me happy to hear it again.

Going into today’s appointment, I was pretty calm and without a worry in my head … until we sat there in the office and the doctor was getting ready to listen to the heartbeat. Then I got really nervous. However, the sound was there nice and strong and the doctor said, “There’s the heartbeat” and then looked at me and asked “Do you hear it?” Obviously she remembered that I could not make anything out the first time and I had to take her word for it. This time, I heard it loud and clear and it was one of the most powerful sounds I have ever heard in my life. It was that fast paced, yet calming “swoosh” repeating itself over and over.

Everything is looking good so far. Thank you God.
