I heard my babys heartbeat today!!! I wasnt sure I would be able to since Im only 8 weeks but it was clear as day! My mom bought me one of those bebe sounds dopplers at Wal-Mart and she got the heartbeat on the first try. It says that you really need to wait until you are in your third trimester but we didnt. So for those of you who wanna listen this early I say go ahead and you might be able to pick it up. I go to my first Prenatal appt on Monday at 1:30. Im so excited! My mom took me shopping today and I found a bunch of nice used baby clothes for really cheap prices and I got them. I found lots of Winnie The Pooh stuff for my nursery too. I cant wait till I get moved into our new house and can start setting up my nursery!

That is so exciting!  The first time you hear a baby's heart beat is amazing, it helps make your new adventure a reality.  Just wait until you feel your fist kick!
