Heartbeat

I’m getting anxious for tomorrow’s ultrasound appointment. It’s exciting to think about “seeing” your baby for the first time. I remember staring at the grainy black and white image on the screen during our first ultrasound for Ian and the rush of feelings that hit me when I could see a tiny person.

Our number one concern is that baby is healthy…

Number two concern is that there is only one baby in there…

We’ve talked a lot about whether we want another boy or a girl. Each has their pros and cons, but I think we both agree a girl would be awesome… It sounds like a lot of our family is rooting for a girl too. Hopefully the baby cooperates and shows us what we need to see.

Also, here’s a recording from last month’s appointment that I forgot to post. It’s either the baby’s heartbeat or a clip from¬†“The Hunt for Red October” sound effect reel.

I’m pretty sure my heart will be beating this fast (160 beats per minute for anyone that is curious) until tomorrow afternoon. I’ve been waiting for this appointment for a few months.
