Our second prenatal appointment was today and we had a different midwife, Betsy. Betsy actually did listen to the baby's hearbeat and it was a glorious and wonderful sound. The baby's heartbeat was 160 beats per minute so of course people are saying "Oh, it's a girl with a heartbeat that fast" or "See, it's a boy." Either way, that seems like a healthy, respectable heartbeat so we are estatic.
At our friend Mark's 35th Birthday Party recently, we got to see many of our friends who we haven't seen since we knew we were pregnant. We also got to find out that our friends Mark and Maeve are also pregnant (just a few weeks behind us)! Here is a photo of Maeve, me, and Amelia - the three pregos!!!
What a great surprsie!! This weekend, in Chicago on a trip, I learned that my colleague and friend Megan is also pregnant! She is two weeks ahead of me and it was just too cool to get to tell each other we were pregnant together in Chicago on our girls (VC Divas) weekend together. In fact, I think it went soemthing like Megan announcing once we were all there, "I'm pregnant!" and there being much screaming and happiness and hugging and then me announcing "So am I!" and more screaming and happiness and hugging and jumping up and down. Here is a photo of us at a Carribean festival in Chicago. The babies' first concert together!!
