First Doctor's Appointment

So things are looking brighter now that midterms is passed. I can take a deep breath. Also that we heard the heart beat of our little bundle that is within me. Also we learned that we are not having any more then one baby at a time at least...this time. Though I can't find the joy in teasing Stephen that there is more then one.
Our Doctor's appointment was at three o'clock. We arrived early because I had to fill out some paperwork before hand. The doctor came in after awhile of sitting in the waiting room and started to ask the normal questions. She was very nice and kind and asked if I had any questions. So I think I asked one question. She then said, "Well, I think your at the right week to see if we can catch a heartbeat." She then squirted the lovely gel that is freezing cold. Bless her soul she really really tried to find the heart beat and was not having much luck. Of course every once and awhile you catch the heartbeat very light in the background. I heard it the Doctor heard it. Stephen did not. So you know what my doctor did, "Let's get a sonogram." I looked like Christmas came early.
We waited for our time to go to get a sonogram. Another squirt of that lovely gel and bingo their was our little one. I tried my hardest not to start crying. Our first child was growing within my body. It finally all seemed real to me. The tech. started to play the heartbeat which happened to be 163 beats per minute. It was a beautiful sound to my ears. Here is our healthy baby who is 10 weeks and 3 days. I am now due on May 3rd, 2011.
