Cough! Jump!

I have some more great pictures to upload and lots of details to share about today. But I am exhausted. I was so worried last night that I barely slept an hour.

I wanted to let you all know that my fear and doubt was unreasonable. Our sweet baby's heart continues to beat away at 154 BPM and was still ahead in gestation, measuring 12 weeks, 5 days.

We took our camera and got some great videos of the baby. We also found a neat trick - when I cough, the baby jumps! So adorable!

Now, I have some bloggers to check up on and then I am going to bed. I wish that I was more eloquent right now, because this is truly one of the best days of my life. But I am beat.

Pictures tomorrow. . .

Wonderful news!!

I don't see my little ones again until 20 weeks, which seems ages away. I hope you get to see yours again sooner than that, becase it's just fantastic, yes?

And it helps the worry, of course.

Hang in there!

I'm SO glad, Katie...it sounds like everything is trucking along just beautifully!

That's neat that you can cough and the baby jumps. Very cool. Maybe the next time you see the baby you'll be able to see whether you're having a boy or a girl...that is, if you want to know.
