I had my 11 week appointment with my OB today, and to say that I was nervous is quite the understatement. I've tried not to let the miscarriage I had last year affect how I felt about this pregnancy, but it's been hard to suppress that fear in the back of my mind. I knew once I heard the heartbeat I would feel better, but also worried about how I would react if the doctor couldn't find it.
Well, my worries are gone! Not only were we able to hear the heartbeat today, but it was so much louder and stronger than I was expecting it to be. It was one of the most amazing sounds I've ever heard and I held back tears as I looked at my husband while we listened for the first time to our little one's heart beating.
I'm so relieved and so hopeful.
This is really happening. We're really having another baby.
