Well, we went for our second baby appointment yesterday.

It took FOREVER to finally see the doctor, but it was all worth it in the end.

This was a pretty simple, straightforward appointment, really. You'd probably call it routine.

We talked to the doctor a little about how things were going, how Rachel felt, etc.

But then, we got to listen to the heartbeat! Most folks think that after an ultrasound, the heartbeat isn't a big deal. But, I am here to tell you that it's one of those moments of excitement and joy you live for every day!

There was something reassuring about those 155 beats per minute that made us smile and helped us to have the foresight and patience we needed to get us to the next appointment.

After all, the next time we see the doctor, we should be able to see if the baby's a boy or a girl!

Y'all please keep us in your prayers. We are praying for a healthy, strong baby.

Amen, brother!

Now, we wait. I'm really excited to find out the gender. Girl would be cool, but God has a plan, man.

fast!! and i do agree..hearing the heartbeat is different than
the ultrasound.

God sure is awesome!!!
