I don't think I have mentioned that a friend of mine leant me her at home Doppler. It it such a nice reassurance to have the ability to check in on my baby every few days. Sometimes I can't find it, which can be a little nerve racking, but I've done really well about not getting too worked up about it. Usually if I can't hear it I try again the next day and can find I right away, so that makes it all better. Tonight I decided I wanted to listen in, and it was one of those nights that I got it right away and it sounded so clear and strong. I am attempting to post a video so you all can hear the magical sound. This is my first attempt at posting a video to a blog, so we'll see of it works!
In other exciting news, I have started to feel occasional flutters of movement! It started off so slight that I wasn't convinced that it was the baby, but now it is becoming much more consistent. It feels like the baby is in there running a feather across the inside of my lower tummy..it actually tickles! I can't wait to start feeling real kicks...I think Ryan is pretty anxious for that as well!
I am feeling much better these days. I haven't thrown up in about 10 days so that's a great sign! My skin is clearing up and I am actually starting to feel pregnant...happy, glowing pregnant. I'm loving it!
Also, we have our appointment set for finding out whether we're having a boy or a girl. It will be September 29--my birthday! The receptionist tried to schedule me for the following Monday, but I asked if we could do it on the 29th and she said that wouldn't be a problem. Hopefully baby cooperates and gives me the best birthday present ever- a perfect crotch shot! :) It sure will make turning 30 a whole lot better! Don't worry, I will be sure to post that day and let all of you know what the verdict is. :)
