8:30 is early in the morning

but that is when we had our appointment with the midwife in aurora. it was my first time there, but m had been before, had met our midwife team, had had her general information gathered.

this time, it was a little more interesting, really. k took our medical history. well, not ours. m's and dc's (the donor). at this point, my medical history is a moot point!

she gave us requisitions for the ultrasound in late june/early july and for the standard bloodwork next week.

then she tried to find the baby's heartbeat with the doppler. it went something like this:

(white noise)
(white noise)
(white noise)
(white noise)
(white noise)
(white noise)

(giant loud heartbeat)

midwife: oh, that would be YOU!

(white noise)
(white noise)
(white noise)
(white noise)
(white noise)
(white noise)

(little tiny heartbeat)

(uncontrollable giggling)

(white noise)
(white noise)
(white noise)
(white noise)
(white noise)
(white noise)

(little tiny heartbeat)

(uncontrollable giggling)

midwife: we won't be able to hear ANYTHING if you don't stop laughing! but it does seem to be hanging out in the same place. hearty little thing!

(little tiny heartbeat)

(uncontrollable giggling)



totally cool, though!
