The Baby's Heartbeat!

I just had a very exciting moment in my life this week. I heard the heartbeat of my first child. We went to the doctor's on Wednesday, May 20, 2009 at 6:15pm and met with our doctor, Doctor Cox. We were a little nervous about the doctor because Britt and I hardly ever go to the doctor and neither of us have a physician or anything so we really didn't know who to go to. My sister April suggested this doctor because she has worked with her at the clinic before. We really like her. She is very personable, but also very professional. Brittany is about 11 weeks and the doctor kept warning us that even though you can usually hear the heartbeat between 10 and 12 weeks, we might not hear a heartbeat and not to freak out. Then when she was about to listen to it, she said it could take a few minutes to hear it, but sure enough about 30 seconds after she started we heard the baby's heartbeat. It was so exciting and it made everything so real. We are going to be parents! She gave us a due date of December 9, 2009.
