It sounded like boom, boom, boom, boom!

Today was the doctor appointment. Everything went really well. I had never been there before so I was worried that we might be late. There was so much construction on the way to where she lives as well as on the way to the doctor. It all went fine, though! It was cool because I got to pick her up at her home and meet her brother.

At the doctor's office, I got to hear the baby's heartbeat! Let me repeat that...I got to hear the baby's heartbeat!!! It sounded like boom, boom, boom, boom...very strong and very fast! I think that must be one of the most beautiful sounds I have ever heard.

So, everything is going well. We were able to spend a little time together and talk afterwards, too.

24 days until the baby's due date!

That's wonderful! It sounds like you are really developing a relationship with the mother and I'm sure that puts both of you at ease.

Have you found out the sex of the baby?

AWESOME!!! Isn't that heartbeat the coolest thing ever? I don't think I will ever grow tired of that sound.

LL said...

What a beautiful sound.

If we had lived in the same state as S, I would have loved to have attended one of her appointments and heard this magnificent sound.

Gosh, you are so close. 24 days! Whatcha gonna do in the next few weeks to occupy your time?

Fantastic! That's so cool :-)

Wendy said...

Suzanne -- No, we still don't know if it's a girl or a boy. It will be a big surprise for all of us! We're also keeping the names a secret, so everyone in our family (and friends) will have 2 surprises!

LL -- I have SO much to do over the next few weeks! I'm back to school in a couple days, so I'm quickly trying to pull everything together. I'm getting there. I just want things done, so it will be much easier for my substitute.

Thanks for all of the comments everybody!
