Oh yeah! Went in for my monthly check-up with Dr. Lin and got to hear the heartbeat for the first time.
Seriously, it’s been a little nerve racking having to wait weeks between appointments in order to get updates on this little honu. And since I’m just at the start of the second trimester, I don’t get to feel any movements to reassure me that my little turtle is in there, kicking away.
So with the doppler reading today, I was ecstatic to hear the heartbeat going so fast and so strong. 161! Yeah! That’s my little honu. You make mama and papa proud!
We found out that we don’t get another ultrasound until Week 20. 🙁 So it’ll be another wait before we see our little one again. Patience….so not one of my virtues.
