I can hear your heartbeat...

For the very first time!! Ok, I know those aren't the exact words to the song, but I needed to paraphrase them to suit my needs. I hope Madonna doesn't mind.

So the second prenatal appointment was today. We tried to hear the heartbeat at the last appointment but I was only 9 1/2 weeks and the baby was still too low. But today - that heart was going and going and going. It is so fast and so strong! It wasn't exactly nice to have the doctor pounding on my abdomen while looking for the heartbeat but I suppose it is my own fault that I have so much cushion there to muffle the sound.

Anyway, everyone has asked me how I feel about being pregnant and for the most part, other than skipped periods and morning sickness, I didn't really "feel" pregnant. I kept waiting on it to kick in and man did it kick in today. I am just grinning from ear to ear.

Wow. I'm going to be a mom.
