first doctor visit

today we went to see our new doctor! i have been very anxious about today. i think because i didn't want to go in and the doctor tell me i have a "hysterical pregnancy" and i have been making it all up.

good news. there is a baby!

we did not get an ultrasound, which i know for some would be devastating, but we were able to hear the heartbeat and that was gift enough for me.

the doctor did a full exam and decided that i am 12 weeks along (which is about what i thought). when we have our ultrasound around the 20th week, we will get a better idea.

our due date is around May 20 and since we will be having a c-section, we will meet our baby about a week before that.

my doctor who delivered Nora and Elyn is no longer practicing obstetrics (just family practice) and i am sad that he will not be delivering this baby. however, after our visit with our new doctor today, i am very pleased and peaceful about him being the one that walks with us on this journey.

we are praising God for a good report today! i cried tears of joy when i heard the little swoosh of a heartbeat! (funny story-Dr. J told me that it was more difficult to find the heart beat than it normally is...i guess i'm difficult-ha!)

next visit is in four weeks! and we are taking the girls to that should be interesting :).

Hearing that little swish, swish, swish (especially for the first time) has got to be one of the best moments in life!

I'm so happy for you all and this answered prayer for you and your family. There is nothing quite like getting to hear that little swish, swish, swish.
