How do you know?

How do you know a pregnancy is going well? Let me give you a few ideas:

Spontaneous vomiting.
Extreme and complete exhaustion.
Frequent urination.
A strong heartbeat of 156!!!

We had our 12 week appointment today and heard a beautiful heartbeat. "He" didn't really like being poked and prodded by the machine and kicked a lot, which sounded like thumps. M was with us and really enjoyed hearing "his" heartbeat. She even told our doctor that she's having a baby brother and his name is Handsome. We've actually all taken to calling it a him because she's so convinced it's a boy!

Hooray! This wonderful news makes my heart happy! Praying for a continued healthy pregnancy and a beautiful happy ending in 26-28 weeks!

Handsome! Kids are awesome. My friend's son was going to name his sister Tink, but since she was born he's decided the name his parents choose was okay, too.

Just reading about you and pregnancy makes my heart sing.
