Goodies & a Strong Heartbeat

January 22, 2009 Sarah Coggins

My sweet friend, Wanda, sent this box of adorable baby gifts. I have to agree with her – those little jeans are the cutest.

I had a quick check-up at the OB office yesterday. My weight is down again, but the doctor said I’m doing fine and she thinks I’m on track to gain a healthy amount as the pregnancy progresses. She checked the baby’s heartbeat. It took a moment to find and, I admit, made me nervous for a second but there it was. Nice and strong at 145. 🙂

My only disappointment was learning that our next ultrasound may have been scheduled too early. The doctor said we might not be able to tell the sex at that point so I pushed it back a week to Feb 10th. Only 19 more days….but who’s counting? 😉

    Those are the cutest little jeans. It is SO much fun to shop for a new baby. I had several times with my babies where they couldn't find the heartbeat for a few minutes. Each time I panicked. It is such a comforting sound isn't it? I can't wait to find out what you are having. Girls and boys are both so much fun. :)

    Glad that you had such a good appointment :) That short amount of time looking for the heartbeat can be very stressful - but the sound is AWESOME! When I was pregnant with Jamie I actually rented a machine I could use at home to listen to hear his heartbeat for the first few months - after our history, I just needed that reassurance :)

    How fun it is to hear the heartbeat! It's such a wonderful feeling to know there is a life growing inside you.
