Yesterday, I heard my baby's heart beat for the first time.
We had seen the little heart flutter at our first ultrasound, but that was 2 months ago. And despite experiencing nausea, exhaustion, shortness of breath, dizzy spells, hunger, sudden and frequent urges to pee, sleeplessness, round ligament pain and pregnancy brain, I was starting to feel disconnected - like I wasn't really pregnant. I'm only 15 weeks, so it's really too soon for me to discern movement.
Yesterday's appointment reassured me though. My little man is growing and he has a good, strong heartbeat!
