We have a heartbeat!

Chad and I went to the doctor this afternoon and we got to hear our baby's heartbeat! So cool! It was nice to be able to hear the heartbeat and be reassured that there is actually a baby in there (up until this point it was really easy to think that I was making the whole being pregnant thing up, including the going to the bathroom often, feeling nauseous all the time, etc.). I just found it comforting to actually have proof that there is a baby there. Plus, it made it seem more real. :)

Now I can't wait to find out what we're having. The doctor said that we'll do the ultrasound two visits from now, or around the first week of March. Yay!
