Listening to My Baby’s Heart Beat

Posted By on Jan 22, 2013 | 0 comments


I know my baby is still only an embryo the size of a grape, but I have so much love for it.

Some nights I watch my Sprout app.  I hold the heartbeat to my chest, so I can feel it beating against mine.  I can’t actually feel my baby’s heartbeat yet, but I can imagine it.  It is beautiful.  One day, after she or he is born I will just lay with my baby on my chest, while we hold each other with helpless and endless love.

That I am alive, and I will get to feel that is a profound achievement of existence.  Not just that it is happening to me, but that it can happen at all.  Life is so precious.
