I stopped by my doctor's office today to see the nurse and see if she would use the doppler today so I could listen to the heartbeat. The nurse is so, so sweet. Right away, she led me back, no questions asked and a minute later we were listening to this little one's sweet heart beat. Still 160's and still music to my ears. I really wasn't concerned anything was wrong, but just wanted some more reassurance. I'm going to try and refrain from going back until my next appointment in three weeks, but I can't make any promises. ;) I think we're getting to the point in the pregnancy where I can start to relax.
I am so thankful for the blessings we've been given. Though I am pregnant, I do not forget where I have been and what I have been through to get to this point. I still consider myself part of the Infertile World and will probably still feel the that way until we take this baby home. You never forget, the pain never goes away, it just starts to hurt a little less. My heart still aches for each and every one of you who is still struggling. I hope that reading stories of encouragement helps you to keep fighting for what we all so desperately want, I know it did for me.
I can do all things through Christ which strengthened me. - Philip. 4:13
