well, tonight’s the big night.  we’re off to see the midwife in a couple of hours.  i’m nervous, of course, and thank you blogo-friends for reminding me not to freak out over the whole doppler/heartbeat situation.  i’m not really sure what i’m hoping for or expecting from this appointment in terms of hearing something from her to calm my fears.  i’m not sure there’s much that can be done that would be conclusive apart from another ultrasound, but then what do i know?  i do know i’m hoping for something……anything.


i also know that i’ve never even made it to this first appointment before now and that, dear readers, is an accomplishment….or something.  it’s definitly something.


so, i will keep you all posted.  until then, i’m off to see the midwife!
