We have a heartbeat!!!

OK so I have to admit...I was VERY nervous about hearing the baby's heartbeat. It's not that I am a first time Mom, but something about this pregnancy just seems so different. So calm. So quiet. Anytime things are EVER calm and quiet in my life something goes horribly wrong. So imagine my surprise today when the doctor, who at first couldn't find the heartbeat, found it and said whew your chances of miscarrying are now less than 3%! What a relief it was to hear!

I guess it's time for me to let people in our little secret...I have told a few people, but haven't even told my kids. Well, my oldest son knows now. After his dad, my ex-husband, walks into my house yesterday and says, "so how far along are you?" I asked, "why would you say that?" He said, "because of the baggy clothes and you are glowing!" Right in front of my 12 year old. I laughed and said thank you for telling him...I was waiting until tomorrow to tell him after we heard the heartbeat! MEN! All my son was worried about was where was the baby going to sleep! BOYS!

So we are off to the San Diego Beach in the morning. I have to get out of this heat in Phoenix. We are just going for a few days, but some are better than none! I will have tons of pictures to post when I get back!
