Happy little things

September 9, 2009

Yesterday’s appointment went well.  Baby’s heartbeat was strong and immediately picked up by the doppler (along with the sounds of much kicking).  I also received a flu shot and then fainted after they drew my blood for tests – not so happy and made the appointment much more exciting than it needed to be, but even when feeling most unsteady, I kept thinking about that heartbeat and how wonderful it was to hear it.

And, family called this morning to share the news that we have a new niece, born early today, beautiful and healthy.  Everyone is doing well, and I’m expectantly awaiting photographs.



  1. Is there anything sweeter than the sound of that heartbeat? Possibly I guess, and that is hearing them cry heartily at birth. I hope we both get that this time around. Then for weeks and months on end after the birth. And then some more.
    Congratulations on the new niece, too.

  2. Smiles here for your happy update (fainting excluded)!

  3. So glad to hear the good news! Grow baby grow!

  4. Hurray for a lovely heartbeat and a new little niece.

  5. Ah, nieces and nephews are the BEST.

    Love the heartbeat!
