Mark and I just got back from our 4-month (40% through the pregnancy!) doctor visit, and everything is great! We got to hear the heartbeat using one of those doppler heartbeat monitors; it was so nice to get that additional reassurance that things are going well. I actually broke down yesterday and ordered a doppler for us to use at home (I just couldn't resist; it was CHEAP) and can't wait for it to get here! It has a cool feature where we can record the heartbeat to our computer, so stay tuned and we will upload it for you to hear soon.
In the meantime, I've been feeling really good. Bloated (ha!) and a bit tired, with the now-routine morning stomach icks, but I honestly can't complain. Unlike all those hangovers I once had in my partying days (JUST KIDDING, mom!), at the end of this journey, WE GET A BABY!! So, you know, totally worth it.
Since I just sent the link to this blog out to our family and friends today, I hope to have lots of people joining us here soon. If you've found us, WELCOME and thank you for stopping in to read about these foibles throughout our pregnancy. Assume I'll be pretty schmoopy on here, as well as silly and sarcastic, but most of all, I hope you know how lucky Mark and I feel to have you all in our lives. This wouldn't be nearly as exciting of a time for us if it weren't for your support and excitement. Hugs!!
