We went to our 15 week visit at the birth center yesterday. Let me just start by saying that I’m so glad I chose to come here! First of all, I walk in and see this book on the table! They knew I was coming. I didn’t even enjoy drinking, until now that is.Take a look at the room we were in!
We met with Lesley (who led the tour we took months back) and she was so calm and reassuring. I was like , “clearly you’ve done this before” So she talked to me about a few different things like car seats, cloth vs. disposable diapers, vaccine options, etc. Then I asked her a plethora of questions. Then we went ahead and listened for the heartbeat! Last time we couldn’t hear it, which is why they thought I was off by a week or so. But this time, we heard it loud and clear! The heart rate was 162 beats per minute!! It was the most incredible sound. Stew took a video on his phone so we could save it!
After our visit with my midwife, we hopped across the street to get my ultrasound (to make sure I was as far along as I though). No we didn’t find out the gender, BUT we got to see Baby moving and shaking! We also found out that I’m right on target with the weeks. So good news all around! Here’s a picture of the ultrasound, which to you probably looks like a gray mass, but sitting there watching it, we could see the baby so clearly! It even went to suck its thumb! SO COOL!! The head is on the left and the body’s on the right. You can see the little spine too!
