We purchased a baby heart doppler to try and hear the babys heart beat. No luck so far, but it's still pretty early to be hearing the heartbeat. We have another doctors appointment this week, a routine monthly exam to check up on the baby and make sure we are progressing as we should be. It's still too early to know the gender, that won't come until October. Thus far the realization hasn't quite settled in that we are going to be parents in 6 months. I think once we know the gender we will be able to make plans and it will be very real then!
