15 weeks

We had our 15 week appointment with the midwife on Thursday :) We love our midwife Christy sooo much! I can't tell you what a Godsend she is to us.

So the last appointment it was a little too soon to hear the baby's heartbeat but THIS time is came through loud and clear as soon as that doppler thingy hit my tummy!

The coolest part?! While she was poking and prodding on my stomach to get a really clear heartbeat I felt the baby move twice! It was the first time I had felt the baby move, it was such a special moment!

Adom and Greg were there with me and Adom was very curious as to what that noise was. When we told him it was the baby in Mommy's tummy he asked, "when's baby gonna come out?"
I think he's understanding a little bit more and more about the new baby :) He's going to be such a sweet big brother.

We also found out that we get to find out if this baby is a boy or a girl on October 20th! It seems like this pregnancy is going by much faster than Adom's did. I guess having a 3 year old to keep me busy helps.

I'm having to pull the old rubber band trick with my pants right now because maternity clothes are way too big still. But I am showing a lot sooner than I did with Adom!

Maybe... I'll get Greg to snap a picture of me soon... Maybe.

Amanda wants to know how many beats per minute was the heart?
