I had a doctor’s appointment yesterday—actually a midwife appointment, as this time around I’m planning to deliver at UCSF, taking advantage of their midwifery program (although of course doctors will also be around if it turns out that I need another C-section).

Anyway, it was a quick visit, in-and-out, but we did get to hear the baby’s heartbeat on doppler, so that was very cool. Whoosh-whoosh-whoosh-whoosh-whoosh! Heartbeat sounds fine, my blood pressure and blood test results are all fine, everything’s fine. My next appointment is Feb. 11, when we’ll get to peek at the kid on the ultrasound. So that’ll be exciting!

    Whoop! Looking forward to the first picture… I left my cynicism about ultrasounds in the trash with my first positive pregnancy test. Actually, with *your* first positive pregnancy test. Ultrasounds are awful cute when it’s a baby you’re predisposed to be pleased with. <3
