That’s so exciting!  I’m really looking forward to hearing the heartbeat.  My initial ultrasound is on Jan. 5th, and I CANNOT wait!  I’ll be almost 8 weeks at that point.

Awesome news that you got to hear your baby’s heartbeat yesterday!  I did too for the first time and it was amazing!!!  We also had our NT scan yesterday so I got to see the  baby actually looking like a baby this time (as opposed to the 6 week scan), but had I not opted to do the NT testing, we wouldn’t have had another u/s until 20 weeks either.  

You’re about 15 weeks now aren’t you?  I think you’re two weeks ahead of me – if that’s the case, not long until the 20 week appt when you can see your little bub!

ETA:  Duh, just realised you put how far along you are in the subject heading!

I got to find all the hearttones this semester in my OB-gyn clinicals, and it is so exciting! Most incredible thing really.

I totally missed that you were pregnant! Congratulations! Are you going to find out the sex of the baby?

Congrats on a great checkup!  I have to say that ultrasounds are my favorite part; I love that my doctor does more ultrasounds that normal.  I miss that little buggar in between!

Are you doing anything special to prepare for a med-free birth?  Are you taking any classes, reading any books, etc…?  Also, are you doing a hospital delivery or a birthing center?

@KatyElle: I just loved Ina May’s guide to Childbirth. The first half is loaded with positive natural birth stories, and the second had good tips to keep in mind while in labor.

I think the book is overall biaised and very anti-hospitals, doctors, etc; which can be a little unfair… And I’m in Canada so what is described in there doesn’t necessarily reflect what happens in hospitals up here (doesn’t match my experience so far anyway).

But it reminded me that our bodies are designed to do this and that it WILL be ok. It really helped me relax and feel almost excited about it all (now that I’m late, the longer between me reading the book and labor actually starting, the more nervous I get again, but I keep reminding myself of what I learned in the book).
