Claire's Big, Exciting News!!

Since Claire is so thrilled, I'll let her tell you all herself....




Once we got inside, we got a smile and a hammy face, but I think she is a bit unsure about what's going to change in her world...Or else she just didn't like being outside.  Could have been either one!



*****

Yesterday was my second drs appt.  It was the usual, weight, blood pressure, pee in a cup.  Then it was time to hear the heartbeat.  The time I couldn't wait for, and that I was also dreading.

The dr got the doppler, and looked....and looked....and looked....and looked.

She left to get another doppler, and I stared at the ceiling and tried not to freak out.

Came back with the second doppler and looked...and looked.

Went back to the first one as the second one wasn't picking up many sounds at all.

And finally, that reassuring thrum of a heartbeat filled the room and I relaxed.

*****

And for those who are going to ask.  No, we are not finding out the sex of the baby ahead of time.  You'll know when we do, sometime in March!
