152. My new favourite number. My new favourite number because it's the rate that my baby's heart was beating today when my husband and I heard it in the doctor's office for the first time :) I thought I would cry but instead I laughed. And for those of you who know me you know my laugh isn't a gentle girlie laugh. It's loud and kind of snorty. And it must have scared the little one because after that we couldn't hear it anymore. My husband and I were both giddy with excitement. Incredible moment.

Things are definitely changing with my body as well. Most of my shirts (including my scrub tops) are getting uncomfortably tight around the boobs. And I had to buy a Bella Band to help my pants feel a little better. I also bought a pair of maternity jeans because I feel I may need them soon. I hate feeling uncomfortable in my clothes. At first I was thinking 12 weeks was too early for maternity wear but as my husband said ... if I need it I need it.

A very exciting day :)


  1. I'm so glad to hear your baby is doing well!

  2. I never cried when I saw ultrasounds or heard the heartbeat either. I would giggle or get a huge smile on my face. I would have loved to hear you bust out laughing out of sheer joy! 152 is a great number.

    I started wearing maternity yoga pants at home around 12 weeks, and I think I bought maternity clothes for work around 14 weeks. I hated the bella band, or whatever it is called. You do what you must to be comfortable!
