It's got a backbeat, you can hear it...

It's Baby's heartbeat again, and you can barely hear the doctor--Gena, this time--and I in the background, discussing what you can hear too--the extra little bump in the heartbeat. She said that usually it's hiccups, although it could be an arrhythmia, but that it's nothing to worry about. Even if it were an arrhythmia, she said that they usually just work themselves out by delivery or soon after.

I tried to tell Baby to hold its breath and swallow three times to get rid of the hiccups, but it didn't listen to me. It already favors its mother.

Smart Baby; Mama's the nice one.

Other than that, things are fine. Mama and baby are the right size for where we are, and we'll go for our ultrasound on February 22. Unless they find anything unusual, that will be our only ultrasound. We'll share pictures if we get them, but it may take a day or so to scan them in if we get printouts. We'll see how geeked out they are and if we can get digital files.

On the good advice of Sister #1, I called the ultrasound place, and they will videotape the whole thing if we bring in a VHS tape. They can digitize it and get it to us on CD within a few days. We'll post that in addition to any still pics if we can.

Apologies for posting this so late--this appointment was on February 10. I sent the file out to family right after the appointment, but forgot the three of you who read this who aren't family.

I'll try to be better about the pics and video.
