Weekly Wisdom: Just waiting and dreaming.
Milestones: Hearing the heartbeat loud and clear.

I finally got over the cold I had last week. Thankfully it was not the flu. All I was able to take was Tylenol cold so luckily that helped and I think I'm back to normal now. We had our monthly doctors appt last Thursday and everything sounded great. The doctor was able to find the heartbeat right away. It was 162 bpm this time. I was able to record it on my phone and let everyone hear it at a birthday party for my cousin Saturday. I'm still waiting for my belly to pop. As of now it just looks like I'm fat rather than pregnanct. I'm sure it will come soon enough though.
