We just had our second doctor's appointment. We are a little over 12 weeks and we heard the heartbeat tonight!! It was 160 beats per minute :-) Dale, Brandt's dad, is convinced that means it's a girl! It was such an amazing thing- she placed the doppler device on my stomach and immediately we heard the heart. So cool! It's so nice to have confirmation :-) This week Little Sorbs will be almost 3 inches long and will weigh about 0.8 ounces. Crazy! As for me... I'm feeling great and gaining weight- Yikes!

10 weeks along... Only 30 to go! Yikes! The baby is now called a "fetus." That's moving up in the world. Little Sorbs is about 1 1/4 inches long right now and develops fingernails and toenails this week. It's amazing to learn about the intriciate parts of the body that are developed right away. What an incredible thing! We are doing very well. I have been feeling great this week. Praise the Lord! An interesting fact about myself... I crave hamburgers. Big, juicy, greasy hamburgers. I would eat a hamburger every day of the week if I could. I could care less where the burger comes from, but I prefer a healthy burger from good ol' McDonald's. I ate 5 hamburgers in one week. That's a record for me :) Our next doctor's appointment is November 30th. Until then...

We had our first doctor's appointment tonight. All is well. I am 9 weeks today! We tried to hear the heartbeat, but didn't have any luck. I did learn that my uterus is "retroverted," or tilted backwards, so she wasn't surprised we couldn't hear the heart. We go back in three weeks to try again! Thanks for your continued prayers. We'll keep you updated!

Week 8 is complete! I was reading that the baby is starting to get fingers and toes this week. How exciting!!
