Today,we had a follow-up appointment with Dr Green. She made us listen to your little heartbeat! Both your dad and I got teary-eyed as we listened to your regular thump-thump. It made things so much more real for us! Now we know for sure that we are growing a little person in there. Until today, it was really surreal. Yeah, I have a bump, but other than that, there are no real symptoms anymore. My boobs are almost back to normal sensitivity (YAY!), no more nausea or vomiting, I haven’t gained weight yet (as a matter of fact, I have lost 2 lbs) and we still can’t feel you move in there. To get to hear your heartbeat was reassuring in a way and it felt like there was no denying your presence anymore. Not that we were denying it beforehand. It’s hard to explain how hearing you made us feel other than, we felt you become real. And that’s a feeling we’ll remember for the rest of our lives. It was a real surge of love and awe at what the future and you will bring to us. We cannot wait to meet you little one!
