Happy Surprise

So I went to see my doctor today for the monthly check-up. I felt torn between wanting to hear the heartbeat on the Doppler and hoping that she couldn't find it with the Doppler so that I could see the baby by ultrasound. I mean, a good strong heartbeat on Doppler is a good thing, but seeing your baby and having that extra assurance that everything is all right is better!

And wouldn't you know it, the nurse could only find a faint heartbeat for the baby, so she decided to go ahead and take me to the ultrasound room where I saw Vavoo moving around just fine with a nice strong heartbeat, not super fast, which continues to make me believe we'll be having a boy.

It was a good day.

What a wonderful treat getting to see your little one wiggle around in your belly :O) I'm so happy for you!

I'm also so thankful that all of your paperwork is coming together for you all! And I think that celebrating with a Starbucks coffee is totally the way to go!!

I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas and Blessed New Year!

Yeah! Great news. Glad baby is doing great. How many weeks are you along now? I was convinced I was having a girl for lots of reasons...and it was a sweet little boy instead. Are you going to find out or be surprised?

Thanks, friends! For some reason I haven't been getting notifications about comments, so sorry if it seems like I"m ignoring you.
Shannon--I'm 15 weeks, and we are definitely finding out! I have an appointment on Monday, but it might still be too early. We'll see! :)
