On Wednesday we went to my second doctor's appointment. I still wasn't feeling very well. That morning was a tough morning for me. So when we went to the appointment, I was already emotional. They took my weight, then took us into our room. The nurse came in to take my blood pressure, and asked me if I was ok because I have lost some weight, and they were concerned. Once she left, I broke down. I was worried that somehow I was harming the baby. Then the doctor came in and said the exact same thing, so that didn't help. I started crying again, and you could tell he felt bad. He said we need to do something to make me feel better. He pulled out the Doppler, and we were FINALLY able to hear the baby's heartbeat. (We weren't able to at the last appt because he had to take off and go deliver two babies. . . How rude!) It was so awesome. It made everything feel so real. There really is a human being growing inside of me! I heard it! It's probably in my head, but I feel like ever since Wednesday, I'm feeling better every day. Either it is because I was able to hear the heartbeat, or because I'm starting my second trimester! Take your pick. I am 14 weeks today! We will be able to find out whether we're having a boy or a girl at our next appt! March 26th is the big day. We can't wait to find out. Then we can start getting the room ready. Ryan is most excited to re-paint the whole room a different color :) We still aren't sure what we want to do with the room, but Im sure it'll come with time. If you have any cute idea's just let us know.
