Ba-bum. Ba-bum. Ba-bum.

When I was pregnant with Maddie, I rented a fetal doppler so Tim and I could listen to her heartbeat whenever we wanted. When we got over the heartbeat hurdle with this baby, there was no question that I would rent a doppler again.

It arrived today, and I quickly took it out of the package and got all ready to try to find the heartbeat. I hesitated for a minute, because I’m only 8w6d today, and that’s really early to hear the heartbeat on a doppler. But I thought, what the hell, and I went for it.

It took awhile. At first, I could only hear my own heartbeat. But then, there it was. Ba-bum ba-bum ba-bum ba-bum. The sweet, beautiful sound of my little one’s heart thumping away.

Sweet relief.
