Heart to Heart
We heard baby's heart beat today. For real this time! Funny thing though, when you hear it, you listen for what feels like less than a minute but at our last appointment when we couldn't hear it, we stayed tuned in to my arteries for 8-10 minutes. I also remembered my prepared question! I know...the anticipation is killing you. My prepared question had to do with sleeping on my back. From month 4 on, you are supposed to sleep on your side and even, preferably, your left side. I keep on starting the night sleeping on my side and then whenever I wake up, I find that I'm on my back. The Dr. reassured me that my body will wake me and that when I end up on my back that way it won't endanger the pregnancy. So, rest assured (haha - get it , you can all sleep at night) baby is a-ok.
