heartbeat and kicks

DH was able to make it to my appointment this morning before he went to work. He got to hear the heartbeat, but other than that, it was quick and uneventful. The doctor expressed her slight concern over the fact that I’ve only gained 3 lbs since my first visit. I let her know that I did at least gain 3 lbs prior to my first visit, after finding out we were pregnant. I think that I’ve gained more than that in my tummy, but I think too that I’ve lost a little of my own weight.

In other news, Saturday (12/13/03) was exciting: we felt the baby kick! I’d thought I’d felt the baby move before, but never could be sure. On Saturday, though, I definitely felt Peanut kick! (or punch, or headbang…) And then DH was able to feel it too… pretty amazing!

torch bearing quietly

I will not act out, will not
yell or curse or slam doors,
will not make a scene -- you
do not deserve such a chance
to make an example out of me
to be proven right since you
are not. Instead, I'll stand
at this street corner, raise
my hand high and clench that
light which yet remains. It
will burn brightly, quietly,
fiercely before fading as I.

Then I'll be gone but found.
