10 Week Dr Visit

We had our 10 week check up on Monday. Everything looks great our doctor said. We were even able to hear both heart beats on the dopplar which he said was rare before 12 weeks. They are beating around 170 bpm. No ultrasound this time but hearing the heart beat is always reassuring. He said our goal is to make it to 36 weeks and they should be in great shape and be able to leave the hospital the same day that I do.

He seems to be very realistic about the risks and will monitor me very closely, especially after 22 weeks. It makes me feel good that we are in very capable and concerned hands, not to mention the secure hands of our Heavenly Father. If they come at 36 weeks, that's around February 11, 2007. WOW, that's less than 6 months away. With football season coming up followed by all the holidays, they will be here before we know it.

There is nothing better than the sounds of your baby's heartbeat! I'm sure that TWO heartbeats is even better! And the best thing is that it never gets old!
