Baby #6 Update

I'm now officially in the 2nd trimester now! But that doesn't mean I've been feeling much better, in fact probably worse. blah.

Its hard right now to wait 4 weeks in between appointments and not know/worry if the baby is still okay in there. Last I saw "him" was at 9 weeks along and I didn't get to hear his heartbeat yet, just saw it on the ultrasound screen.

So I had a gracious friend offer to let me borrow her doppler (to listen to heartbeats). I waited until I was 12 weeks to try. It took awhile to find, but I was pretty sure I found it! Today I tried again to be sure, at 13 weeks and sure enough there it was. "His" heartbeat is much faster then mine and measuring around 160 bpm. He was moving around and hard to pin down in one spot though!

It was so amazing, and reassuring to  hear. The miracle of life never ceases to amaze me!
I just can't wait until February. Pregnancy is a time full of worries for me, not being able to see the baby every day and know "he" is okay.

In other news, we've been keeping busy with summer and lots of activities. We went to the coast to visit the Seattle temple and then visited my sister afterwards. The boys had a lot of fun. It was a lonnnng car ride for me across the passes both ways though. uggh

School starts in a few weeks! aack More updates to come....
