I just realized that I never blogged after our last appointment!!!

We saw the heartbeat!!! It was amazing. I'm pretty sure you're not allowed to record during the appointment, but I did it anyway...enjoy!

Baby #3 and his/her fetal pole

The proud big sisters!

We are waiting for our special figurine to arrive to take our next weekly photograph. 

We received a voicemail from Dr. Castlebaum Friday evening congratulating us and saying that he sent a message to our OB saying "we won again." He also said he missed our family and hopes to see us for one ultrasound before we graduate...Reason 1,572,864 why we love him!!!

We go back to the doctors Friday, August 4!

We will miss them dearly!
