After the preliminaries, I got to meet my doctor. He came highly recommended, and I must say that after just 1 visit, I felt completely at ease. This is turning into a wonderful adventure.
The best part: I got to hear a heartbeat! The doctor said that since it was still pretty early, he wasn't sure if he'd find anything, but he did. I don't know which of us was more excited, me or the doctor. It was a wonderful moment, to realize that the miracle of growing life is happening within my body. The fact that my body can sustain that little being is amazing. Yeah, I'm tired all the time and I think I may have a permanent hole in my esophagus due to the heartburn, but it's an adventure and an honor. I'm looking forward to witnessing the new miracles to come!
