I got to hear the baby's heartbeat for the first time today. The doctor just used a microphone and we got to hear the little thing beating away. It was at 164 bpm. This is still high but pretty close to the normal range. Everything else at our appointment today seemed to be normal. The visit was fairly quick once we got in. We get to go back in January and that is when we find out the sex of the baby! I hope. Kristen says that there is a possibility that we won't be able to. That maybe the legs will be crossed or something else will be obstructing the view.
I'm nervous! I really want to find out but I am nervous. Its another step to reality. After we find out the sex then we can start buying some real baby stuff. We can start thinking about painting the room and getting a crib and all that fun stuff!
There are still people that we need to tell too. I am waiting to tell some people until I can sit down with them and enjoy the conversation. I think it is fun to tell people and share the story. Kristen is still a little nervous about it but I am sure that will change soon.
