We’ll just get started with the main event.
We had our second OB visit and were able to see our fast-growing little raspberry. Baby R is measuring ahead of schedule at 8 weeks 3 days and had a heart rate of 178! The old wives tale would say that this means its a girl, but apparently there is nothing scientific to back it up. It was very exciting to actually get to hear the heart beating this time, even if it was only for a few short seconds. Things definitely are starting to feel more real. I’ve also been plagued with much worse morning sickness this week. Hoping that it’s short-lived. Our next appointment is on Valentine’s Day. We’ll meet one of the doctors and I’ll have a lot of blood drawn. Very exciting times for us, and looking forward to being able to share our excitement with family and friends.
