During pregnancy, you never get tired of hearing your baby's heartbeat! Although, you will get tired of feeling like you live at the doctor's office. I think I averaged about 2.5 hours for each and every appointment I had. Sometimes, it is so difficult to sit in the waiting room for a long period of time just to for a brief check-up with your doctor. It was always worth the wait in the end though! Here is the letter I wrote for our little this time:
My Little One,
Today is your daddy’s birthday! We made our 14 week check-up for today and got to listen to your heartbeat again, which is now at 144 heartbeats per minute. That was one of the best birthday presents your father could have asked for you. You are quite a gift already to us!
Mommy and Daddy spent the rest of the Daddy’s birthday together. Daddy wanted a lasagna dinner with cake, so Mommy made this for me. What Daddy didn’t know was that Mommy had planned a surprise and we had all of our friends over to eat this dinner with us. Your Uncle Josh is living with us at the time and he was a part of this party as well!
We set up our next appointments with the Doctor and next month we will get to have our first ultrasound. We are so excited to see what you look like and we may even be lucky enough to find out if you are a girl or a boy, what a Christmas gift that would be to us!
Love You Always,
Mommy and Daddy
