Today was my second prenatal appointment with my doctor and I got to hear the heartbeat. Actually, Mom and I got to hear the heartbeat. Michael doesn't really have anymore time he can take off of work this year so I just picked up my Mom from work right in downtown Seattle and she spent her lunch break with Owen and me at the doctors. It was so nice to have her there and experience that with me. Plus it was an extra set of hands to keep Owen busy!! :) Anyway back to the heartbeat...when the doctor puts that monitor thing on your stomach and you're waiting to hear that thump thump it's like the world stands still for those few seconds (which feel like hours!), but once you can hear it, it's amazing! I told the doctor it's a breath of fresh air. I'm always so anxious about my doctors appointments ahead of time since we've have issues in the past so it always lifts my spirit to walk out of that office knowing that my baby is perfectly healthy!

P.S. We are having the ultrasound to find out if it's a boy or a girl on January 7th!!!!
