yesterday i heard my baby’s heartbeat for the first time.
i wanted to cry but laughed my LOUD Mexican laugh instead.
amazed, in awe and gratitude i breathed deeply inviting my laughter to calm so i can hear the baby again. they moved around, possibly kicking around, moving their little arms, hands, fingers. i could hear it all.
i smiled, GIANT.
then the mid wife showed me how to find the baby in my belly. now every time i can, i pull my shirt up, walk my fingertips across my belly looking for my baby.
at this point, they can hear my voice and my heart beat. i play music for them as well.
emocionante. que alegria. there are 2 heartbeats in my body, mine y el de mi bebe.
