Aaron and I got to visit the Birthing Center for the first time today. The Birthing Center is not too far from our house (or the hospital) and it’s exactly where I want to deliver the baby. We met Linda Marks for the first time and I think she is going to be a great Midwife. The Birthing Suite is pretty cool, too…I’m super excited!!!

We also got to hear the baby’s heartbeat today. It’s amazing how fast a little heart can beat (I think Linda said it was beating 150 beats/min). I am quickly falling in love with this baby…and I feel like I’m actually pregnant now that I’ve heard the baby’s heartbeat. Before, I was kind of skeptical that there was a child growing inside me. Now, I’m actually starting to feel like a crazy pregnant lady. 🙂
