So my crazy over-worrier nature has taken over, so we decided to rent a fetal doppler from Babybeats.com. It came in the mail yesterday and I could hardly wait to get home from work to try it out. Sean decided to test is out by trying it on his neck. I was pretty concerned that we had a hard time finding anything... but we finally did. So, I went to lay on the couch to try it out and Sean started couting but the number seemed pretty low... we were hearing my heartbeat. A few minutes later I found the awesome little thumping sound of a baby heartbeat! It was about 140 bpm! What a relief to be able to hear that anytime we want to!
In other baby news... we have decided not to find out the gender. A few people didn't like that idea, but for the most part everyone is excited for the suprise. Originally I wanted to find out but Sean didn't. The more I thought about it, the more excited I was to have such a wonderful suprise waiting for us in December.
As soon as I have any belly to take photos of, I will post some pictures.
