Dr. appt # 5

I have seen my doctor a lot these days. And the staff at the office already know who I am when I come in each time. It's really nice.

I saw my OB on Wednesday and we got to hear the babies hearts thumping away. In my mind, it took him awhile to find baby B and hear the heartbeat. To Jake and his newspaper, it took no time at all. :)

Baby A is around 155 bpm. Baby B is around 150 bpm. I checked my past pregnancy journals with both Molly and Micah and saw that both of their hearts were in the 155 range at this same point in the pregnancy. That was really neat to see.

Next appointment, on my birthday, October 28th, will be another ultrasound. That will be fun to have on my birthday! I will be 15 weeks then.

I cannot say enough to those of you who pray for us so fervently. Truly, I am just humbled beyond words.

Thank you so much.

I bet that noise is so sweet to hear-- I loved getting to hear Brayden's heartbeat! I can't imagine getting to listen to 2 at the same time-- SO fun! Looking forward to the update on your birthday-- what a neat birthday present!

I continue to pray for you and several other Moms that I've met online who are pregnant after loss. I can only imagine (maybe one day that will be me!) what your heart must feel as you go through the days of pregnancy. Thanks for sharing your journey with me!
