Baby's Heartbeat

Friday, 7.27.07 Patrick came with me to my 16 week ob appointment. My bp and weight were checked, we passed on optional testing and then got to hear the baby's heartbeat. This was my third time hearing the baby's heartbeat and Patrick's first. It was so fun to hear baby's heart beating away. I got teary eyed hearing it and it was fun to see Patrick's reaction!! Such a miracle. Last month baby's heartbeat was 163 and this time it was in the 140s-150s -- that's good.
So far pregnancy is great! Everything is going well and I have no complaints. My lack of motivation in the evening has worn off and Pat's thankful for that as I can get more household chores accomplished again. I'm also able to exercise yet. Patrick is jogging with me but I won't go more than 2 miles. The 5K and 10Ks are going to have to wait until next year. My mom and I are also going to look into doing water aerobics at a local pool together. That would be great exercise for me as I progress and I would love the company cuz' I know Patrick wouldn't do that one with me. : )

Brenda thanks for doing a blog. It will be fun to watch you "grow." Wish they would have had this kind of stuff when I was pregnant with Jacob and John
