Sometimes, when Moose is sleeping, I will lay my head on his chest and listen to his heartbeat. I am reminded of the first time we ever heard it..
I had 2 previous miscarriages before the Moose. For this pregnancy, I was so paranoid in the beginning that I asked for a blood test at 6 weeks to make sure I was still pregnant. Instead, my OB ordered an ultrasound. I was so scared and nervous and anxious. When we saw the little flicker of his heart, the three of us (me, Hubby, and the ultrasound tech) all cried. Making life is an amazing thing, but watching it happen is even better.
