December 20th Midwife Appointment

So I was very bummed about not being able to have my midwife appointment on Thursday (in which the midwifes secretary forgot to call and tell us her appointment was cancelled) This afternoon I got a call from Winni asking me if I had gotten her message earlier (which I had not) and she said she was coming into town and felt bad that the communication was not there for Thursdays appointment........SO she was coming into town today and called to meet us! I was so ecstatic! We were OK with not having had the appointment, because there is a reason for everything. Since I am just 11 weeks today, maybe we wouldn't have been able to hear the heartbeat, etc. She scheduled us for January 5th and by then we would've for surely heard it. BUT, since she was planning on coming in...we thought....why not go in. So, I had a physical of sorts, and then...... the rest follows below!

Turn up the volume on the movie AND on the computer!

It is so fun to hear the heartbeat for the first time! I loved it so much I went and got me a fetoscope so I could listen to it whenever I liked. :D
