Baby #3 Heart beat and PHOTOS!

What a fun appointment we had! My mom is here visiting and she was able to come to my baby appointment:-) I was excited she was going to hear the heartbeat and I wanted a video/recording of the heartbeat for Mike, but I had NO idea that we would get to see the baby! We already waited an extra 30 min to be seen so I was a bit frustrated, but happy to sit with my mom. I hadn't seen this Doc yet and she was super nice. We chatted a little and then I told her we weren't wanting to find out the gender so she could mark it on the chart. She was all excited and put it on my chart with a smiley face.

sidenote: I know we are all excited to find out what the new Morris addition will be, especially having two boys, but to be honest, I am very excited and happy about this being a surprise! I really have no desire to find out the gender and can't wait for that joyous day where we get to meet it and see how it will change our family forever:-)


Anyways, I got the video/recording (at the bottom of the post), heartbeat in the 150's again. Pretty consistent with the last couple of visits. I am measuring a finger below the belly button which is right where I should be 18 wks. After all the measuring and listening we were talking about how big the baby was, and I couldn't remember what "fruit" -size it would be at this point. Then the doc said..."wanna see it?" I definitely wasn't going to refuse a quick US, so we got some lovely shots of the babe. She was very careful, as were we, to not look unless she told us to. I haven't experienced not knowing what the gender was yet, so this was very different for me! We have my 20 wk US in about 2 weeks, so I will get to see it again! NO PEAKING though:-) Anyways, enjoy the little babe!!!

What a BEAUTIFUL baby you two have made, just like your two other gorgeous boys! I think your decision to keep it hush hush is AWESOME and will make the day that this newest little Morris makes their entrance, even more exciting! Thanks for letting us take part in this journey with you!

It doesn't matter how many times someone gets preggo or how many ultrasound pictures I see...it always fills my heart with joy and puts a big smile on my face. I'm so happy for you guys and praising God that your baby is healthy and strong. He or she is going to be one lucky kiddo to be a part of your amazing family!

Hey! You're baby and my baby could be twins! :) ha ha ha! I think I have the same pose from my little one (full face and body) in a recent US. So much fun to see the little ones. I'm super excited to be surprised with you! I can't wait until we can both share what we are having. Have fun with your Momma being in town!
