We heard a heartbeat!

So we finally got to go for our second appointment with the midwife today. I'd had to reschedule twice before this because my midwife's clients kept having babies on the day when I was supposed to have my appointments. Oh well. We saw her today, a pretty standard check-up, took some bloodwork for tests, found out I've gained 4 pounds so far, and then we got to hear the heartbeat! Ticking away at 165 bpm, so good and fast, but that's normal for this early on. I'm pretty sure Reuben's was about that speed too at this point.

I'll be 13 weeks tomorrow, so officially done the first trimester. Time seems to be going by pretty quickly this time. It probably helps that I'm so busy taking care of the kids that I just don't think about it as much. The morning sickness seems to be easing slightly, not gone by any stretch of the imagination, but definitely manageable. I also feel like I'm starting to get some energy back, which is nice because then I'm slightly more motivated to get some cleaning done around the house.

Tim is currently super busy with work. We're both looking forward to December when things should slow down a little for him. Promise Keepers has wrapped up, and he's off to Montreal this weekend for some Athletes in Action breakfast thingy. He's got tomorrow off though, which will be nice to have him around.

Well, I'm going to end this now. I'm just in from choir practice for Handel's Messiah that I'm singing with Redeemer's Alumni choir. It's pretty tiring. So off for now...

I am so glad that it's going so fast for you this time around. I felt like the first trimester drug on for years.
I am glad things are going to so well for you guys!

Hurry for growing babies. The next 3 months are supposed to be the 'good' months, so enjoy! Live in the moment. -mum
