Thu, Feb 12, 20042:28 PMI told everyone at work. I made Valentine’s cards, which I give to my friends anyway, so that was not suspect, and signed them “Love, Jessica and Baby Holst”. One of my friends looked at it while I was still in the office with her, thanked me and left. 10 seconds later she was back! “Baby Holst! Baby Holst! What’s this about a Baby Holst?” Of course, the morning rush in the general office at school is a great place to let the cat out of the bag. Our secretary said that she had even dreamed that I was pregnant!
Tue, Feb 10, 20042:39 PMWe heard our little nubbin’s heart beating! Gayle warned us that at this stage it is really hard to hear the baby and sometimes it might be at the back of the womb, so don’t fret if we don’t find the heartbeat. She put the Doppler on the lower abs and BOOM! (Actually it was more of a WHOOSH! WHOOSH! WHOOSH!) There it was. Apparently we have a very cooperative baby. Do you think that is indicative of future personality :)?
