Highlight Of The Week: Hearing babies heartbeat and hearing it move around in there! I thought I felt the baby move while the doctor was listening to the heartbeat with the doppler. He said he was moving around a lot (you can tell by the swishing sound between the heartbeat, and then I felt a little nudge!)
Babies heartbeat was at 152 this week!
