Listen to my heart beat.

Today, Mama heard baby's heartbeat for the second time. The first time she heard it was at her nuchal translucency, which I couldn't go to since I was at home with the Human Torch.

Today, she had a routine checkup--everything was normal--and again heard the heartbeat. She kindly took along our Flip camera to record the sound so I could hear it when I got home.

Even though I wasn't in the room, it was still magical to hear the heartbeat, especially after what was a long and stressful day at work, which was the culmination of many such weeks. I won't go into details here, except to say that the recession took its toll, as it has at so many other organizations.

Coming home to hear baby's heartbeat was a welcome relief, excitement and joy.

    Oh how I miss that noise. I became addicted to it while in the hospital when I went into early labor. So glad you have it on video. Good thinkin' Mama! And that's the cutest little zygote ever :-)
