Went to the doctor this morning, and had a twenty-minute session of trying to monitor the kidlet's heartbeat. In theory, fairly simple: the nurse found his heartbeat, and all I had to do was lie there and hold the monitor in place while the machine took readings.

In practice, the kidlet was not happy about being squashed by this thing pressing into my stomach, and kept wriggling around trying to avoid it. So I spent quite a while chasing heartbeats round my stomach, settling into place, then feeling a massive KICK and we were off again...

(Pregnancy appears to be going well. My body doesn't like it, but I appear to be ultra-good at the gestating thing.)

Your kid is more well-behaved than I was. My mom claims that when she was carrying me, her doctor once tried to check my heartbeat and couldn't find me with a stethoscope, so he got out a good old fashioned wooden funnel thingy (I have no idea what they're called). The second he put one end to her belly and the other in his ear, I kicked it so hard I almost busted the poor guy's eardrum.

Sounds like it's going well. I hope you continue to have a relatively easy pregnancy. :)
