The greatest sound I've ever heard

Yesterday morning I had another appointment with my midwife. I absolutely love going for checkups and hearing that baby girl is doing ok. Ron came a long with me to this appointment which was so special. Since he has been out of town for so long this was actually the first appointment that he was able to attend and it was wonderful to have him there. I know many people experience this much earlier in their pregnancies, but our doctor would never offer to let me hear the heartbeat, so I trusted everything was normal, but never had to chance to hear it for myself. Yesterday our midwife listened to the heartbeat through a Doppler and we were both able to hear the most wonderful sound I've ever heard. Her little heartbeat, strong and steady (and so fast!) and the swooshes of her moving around in my belly. I'll never forget that moment and I can't wait for my next appointment in two weeks time to hear it again. I am so grateful that this pregnancy is going so smoothly and cannot wait to meet our daughter in a few weeks time.
