I had my first pre-natal appointment last week. Everything went well, even the part where they stuck needles into my arm. (Okay, it was just one needle, but still.)
E. and I got to hear the heartbeat of our little one. It was awesome… E. almost cried. I was just amazed that my body actually DID contain another human being.
Here’s what E. posted as his Facebook status that night:
heavenly underwater heartbeats… so surreal I wept…
I also had to get on THE SCALE. Apparently, I’ve only gained about 10 pounds, which isn’t so bad. It feels like more. All my size 4 clothes do not fit anymore. 😦
But it’s all for the good of the baby, and he seems to like what I’m eating, because I felt him kick last night like crazy! Like little feet pounding against my uterus! Very special.
