HAAS Mallory 020109

Mal had another check-up at the doctor today. Today is 17-weeks and three days. Everything is good and seems to be normal… found out Mal can take some cold medicine (as long as it’s Tylenol-brand) to feel better and it won’t hurt the baby.

We have to wait four more weeks for the next ultrasound, which will hopefully tell us if what we are expecting. I don’t know if I can wait that long… although I guess I don’t have much of a choice. I’m pretty sure none of my camera gear can see through skin.

The nurse let us hear the heartbeat, though. For the people who try to figure out the sex with the heartbeat it came in as 161 beats per minute. Take a listen below… I’ve been playing it over and over for a while now. Unbelievable.

I wish I kept recording… the nurse moved the little-baby-heartbeat-measurement-thingy and it made a funny sound that resembled a growling bear.


  • aww

  • That is great! Maybe it growled like a bear because it is part bear.
