a very happy valentine's day

A has never been a huge fan of Valentine's Day, but I think I may have converted him today.  Our ultrasound showed two fetal poles and two easy to spot heartbeats!  I am officially 6 weeks, 6 days today, but one was measuring at 6 weeks 4 days with a heart rate of 131 beats per minute, and the other was at 6 weeks 5 days with a heart rate of 123 beats per minute.  The doctor said this was all perfectly within the normal range, and he was even able to show us the red and blue blood flow in each of the little hearts.  Precious!  We have decided that the verse in Genesis regarding God calling the animals two by two is our theme for this pregnancy, so after the ultrasound we celebrated by purchasing the most adorable little plush ark with several sets of animals (I had spotted it earlier but wanted to wait until we saw the heartbeats). 



I hope that you are all having a wonderful Valentine's Day and that you are able to spend it with someone you love, or at least doing something you love.  Happy Valentine's Day!
