Mommy started her practicum again...and THE DOPPLER IS HERE!!!

Mommy went back to St. Mary's Outpatient Clinic for her practicum. She told Jeanne that she was pregnant and Jeanne was so excited for her. Others found out throughout the day. But the most exciting news of the day was that the doppler came today from BellyBeats! Even though mommy had her practicum all day and had to work tonight...she just HAD to try and listen to you. Mommy wasn't able to find you before work,but as soon as she got home Daddy helped find you. You were happy as can be in there. It was so exciting to be able to hear your heartbeat. We love you!

Visit with Kristen

Today mommy went and saw Kristen the nurse practitioner. She asked mommy a lot of questions while completing the ACOG form. It was pretty boring. We didn't listen or see you at this visit.

Mommy is going to rent a doppler again so Daddy and Mommy can listen to you every night. We listened to your brother every night and loved every minute of knowing you were ok inside of mommy. We can't wait to get it in the mail!

More blood from mommy...

Mommy had to go and get her blood drawn today. Hopefully this will be the last time for a bit. Richard (the nice man at Quest) did a great job. He managed to get blood on the 2nd stick! Last time it took 5 sticks! Mommy was very happy that she wasn't a human pin cushion this time.

We can't wait until Monday when we get to see you again on the ultrasound. Like Thomas will tell you little one, get use to all the pictures because mommy and daddy LOVE taking pictures!

We saw you!

Mommy and daddy were so excited to see you today! After the MA took mommy's blood pressure (128/80!),she took us to go see the ultrasoundographer. She was able to find you right away. There you were..your heart was beating nice and strong (120). You did measure a little bit smaller then mommy and daddy thought. Instead of being 9w, you measure 7w4d. Since you were conceived on mommy's first cycle after Thomas was weaned, we have no idea when anything happened! Dr. Collins didn't seem to worried...she just wants us to go and get an ultrasound done in the perinatal center for dating. We are going to go see Dr. Bartlesmeyer on Monday! We can't wait to see you again!

Some spotting...

Mommy and daddy got really worried today. Mommy had a little bit of brown spotting but it only happened one time so hopefully it was nothing. We go see Dr. Collins on Thursday so hopefully we will get to see you too!
