Heartbeat :)

Well, I am finally back from a big blog break! Sorry for the delay. Hopefully those of you who check this thing now and then haven't given up on me yet. I'll try to go back to doing weekly as before.

As most of you know, we are expecting our first baby in February 2007 (the current due date is February 9, 2007). Yesterday we had our second appointment with the OBGYN and of all exciting things, we got to hear the heartbeat! At first, it was pretty faint, but the doctor prodded me (it was a little uncomfortable, but worth it) until he finally rested on a spot that picked up the heartbeat LOUD and CLEAR. We have a healthy baby from all reports. Woohoo!

I also am now feeling the kid squirming inside of me. I'm 16 weeks along, so the baby's still pretty small... but I do definitely feel "flutters" (and probably baby somersaults) every now and again. Yay!

In four weeks (on September 19), we go in for our ultrasound and we'll find out if it's a girl or a boy. We'll keep you all posted.

A lot has happened since our last blog. Obviously, we're having a baby. Also, we moved and I quit my job. Crazy, I know, but they were all right decisions and we feel really good about life right now. Who knows what's coming next!

Keep in touch! (-JoJo)
