The Sweetest Sound

This morning I got to hear the sweetest sound.

Some people describe it as a whooshing wind.

Some people describe it as a galloping horse.

I can only describe it as amazing.

Today I heard my baby's heart beat for the first time.

He was being mischievous - every time the nurse found him, he'd squirm away. This was making the nurse and I laugh, which was making it even harder to find. Eventually, she tracked him down and I got to listen to the sweet sound of the beating heart that is growing inside me.

The miracle of life never ceases to astound me.

How wonderful. I am so happy for you and your FD. My daughter's due date is April 23 and when she found out she was pregnant, I asked her to take a picture every month of herself. She stands profile, same stretchy skirt and top, and in the same spot in her house each time. Over the months we have some wonderful photos of how the 'Baby Bump' has grown. A wonderul addition to a baby book I think.
