We went public
Our midwife appointment was great. She found the heartbeat immediately and could hear the fetus moving around. Heartbeat was at an excited 160. I don’t feel the need to buy a Doppler but after hearing it this morning I now understand that desire. I did get scolded for my lack of protein and love of carbs. Turns out eggs for breakfast are no longer optional. When this little is born I’m never eating a scrabbled egg again.
After hearing the heartbeat we went public on Facebook. We kept it simple without too much fanfare.
I should mention that our last name isn’t actually Y’allard…
Anyway, simple and true. It works for us (and I’m not very photogenic so takes that burden off!).
