a comforting sound

I just wanted to give a quick update on my pregnancy before I turn in for the night.
I am 12 weeks along today, and yesterday I had my first – besides my original assessment – appointment with my OB.  Thus far, everything seems to be going well.  They have scheduled me for a series of ultrasounds to keep an eye on everything; hopefully we can catch anything that might cause this baby to be born as early as Asher.

When I went to the appointment yesterday, I wasn’t expecting to hear a heartbeat, since the midwives had tried at around 12 weeks with Asher, to no avail.  However, I was pleasantly surprised that my OB quickly found a heartbeat (once she remembered to place the doppler on the right side, since this baby – just as Judah and Asher were – is in the right horn of my bicornuate uterus!)  The heart rate was 150.  Hearing a baby’s heart beating for the first time is always such a blessing.  Praise the Lord for the life He has blessed us with!
