Little Bit Bit: Week 10

20 Feb

Thursday, January 26, 2012

We had our second OB appointment today. This appointment was at the new doctor’s office (since my doctor switched practices and is now with Women’s Health Care Group at Overland Park Regional) and I can’t say I’m a fan of this new place. My doctor more than makes up for it and I know I just need to get over the change. I’ll get there eventually, but the rude receptionist at the front desk isn’t making things any easier on me! I’M PREGNANT! You’re supposed to be nice to me! Whaaaat? That’s not the way it works? Well, it should…

We got to hear the heartbeat today! It always amazes me. I got all teary-eyed every time we heard it when I was pregnant with Lakyn. I figured since this is the second time around that it wouldn’t be as emotional. WRONG! I was still a blubbering fool. Shocker. It’s such a precious and amazing moment to be able to hear this tiny little miracle’s heartbeat. I can’t explain it. Brandon wasn’t able to go to this appointment with me (he went to all but one with Lakyn; he’s such an involved Daddy!) so I made sure to record it for him. I love that we now have that moment forever and wish that we were prepared enough the first time around to think to record Lakyn’s as well. Little Bit Bit’s bpm was 175, and he/she was moving everywhere. Lakyn was the same way, very active and her’s was 165 at this time point in the pregnancy.

Our next appointment is March 1 (my little brother’s birthday).

*Note: I wanted to take a minute to explain “Bit Bit”. For those that aren’t aware, when I was pregnant with Lakyn, we called her “Tidbit” that way we didn’t have to refer to her as “it”. We (I mainly) wanted to keep this baby’s nickname along the same lines. Thus, “Bit Bit” it is!

    I actually even thought everything was even more emotional the second time around because now you know just how special this child is! Just wait until labor/delivery….it is amazing!!! Love the nickname and all the posts!
