Had an obstetrician appointment tonight and my wife was hooked up to a doppler so we could hear the baby’s heart beat. Man, babys hearts beat fast!
Our obstetrician had a listen for a few seconds then made the following statement, “It’s a boy”. “Eh? We told you not to tell us”, I thought. “Has to be a boy, girls don’t have hearts do they?”, was his reply. I had a bit of a chuckle at this joke as did my wife.
Average BPM over 10 minutes or so was about 155, with a range from 140 to 170 BPM.
It’s getting close now, only 15 days and one item left to buy for the nursery (a chair)…
