So, we played around with it last night and this morning and finally heard our little one's heartbeat!!! It was 160-ish, so my mother is convinced it's a girl. For obvious reasons (listed in my sig), my poor son really, really wants a brother. Of course I'm ok with either one, but it'd be pretty funny to have 7 girls and 1 lonely boy, lol.
I'm so happy!
ETA: My aunt (an obstretric and pediatric nurse practitioner) palpated my uterus and said I feel about 13-14 weeks, and I think I'm 12, so that was cool too. :) (I am SO BAD at palpating myself, I can't feel *anything*.)
That's so exciting. When we heard the heartbeat it was 160 which, even though it's unreliable, just convinced me even more that we're having a girl.
I haven't been able to feel my uterus at all yet! I started feeling around as soon as I knew I was pregnant, just so I could notice a change. Nothing so far. The midwife had no problem finding it, but she's had more practice then I've had.
DH and I still have no plans for NYE and it's making me feel like a pregnant loser. Of course if I manage to stay up past midnight that will be a miracle at this point, so leaving the house isn't my favorite idea. We'll probably get some sparkling cider and hang out at home this year.
Dose anyone have a New years resolution this year? My favorite from previous years was when I resolved to live more authentically (that was the year I met DH ). This year I haven't been able to come up with anything, which is a first for me. I've always had a resolution in some form.
