Yippee! On Friday I visited my sister (the doc) and brought my doppler and she immediately found the baby's heartbeat! I was so happy! And she was quite proud of herself as well! I realized that I was looking for it ALL WRONG. I was pressing WAY TOO HARD! She didn't press at all! And she found it a bit higher than I was looking. And it sounded a lot quieter and different than I was checking for. But now that I know what I'm looking for (and that I don't have to push on my tender tummy like a mad woman to find it) I found it myself last night! So fun to now be able to check up on my little one any time I want to! Because I have to say that other than my thickening middle and giant ta-tas, I don't feel pregnant at all. Not like I have any reference to what feeling pregnant should be but...I feel normal. Full of usual energy. Not extra tired. Not extra hungry. Not nauseous. My headaches are even better. Nothin'. I guess this is good as long as everything is all good inside! Anyways, I'm on the final countdown at work. 3 weeks left (I have to say I'm super jealous of the teachers in the US who I follow that all seem to be done teaching now....I don't get it? When do you start back in the fall? We start back after Labour day so I don't know if that is later than you but I might have to look into moving to the states after hearing about this early finish for summer break!!!)
Ciao for now!!
