Whoorlito Update


We’re back from my OB appointment where we just heard the sweetest sound ever. Whoorlito’s heartbeat! 145 beats per minute, baby. At first, I was scared my OB wouldn’t find it. It took about 25 seconds, which seemed like an eternity to me. But then all of the sudden, I heard it. D jumped up and ran over to get his ear closer to the doppler. We just looked at each other with wide eyes and flushed cheeks. Pure unadulterated joy. Man, SAJ was right when she said OB offices should have a coin-operated machine where you can stop in and listen to your baby’s heartbeat. I would be there everyday of the week!

In other news, I was mis-informed about my ultrasound…it isn’t for another couple of weeks. But using my first ultrasound from 3 weeks ago, I created a highly-scientific ultrasound estimation just for you, my loyal readers.


Have a great weekend, everyone!

p.s.- If anyone needs a Photoshop artist, let me know because OBVIOUSLY I have wicked talent.



  1. Oooo How exciting!!! I’m so happy for you guys! :o)

  2. Yayyyy! The heartbeat! The heartbeat! I’m so excited for this little bambino to grace the world.

  3. What a beautiful baby!

  4. you are right, it is sooo a boy! we should start a pool on the sex of the baby and when it will actually delivers. the money then could go for diapers!!!

  7. Reluctant Housewife says:

    I’m so happy for you! You bring back memories (my boy was born almost a year ago) you have so much to look forward to. But heartbeat day is really awesome.

  8. your enthusiasm is adorable and infectious.

    :) sizz

  9. Good idea, chicas! I think I will post a “baby’s sex” poll. Now I just have to figure out how in the hell to do that…

  10. Aw!!! Teeny baby sonogram is v. cute!!! I think she (is a girl, btw. am expert.) looks likes you!

  11. Jurgen Nation says:

    Buns, I’ve got $20 on it being a girl. seriously, Whoorl, put a betting pool in your sidebar!


    how exciting . . . everything must just be a whoorl to you right now . . . ;)

  13. You can get a recording of the baby’s heartbeat, so that you can listen to it whenever you want. I have a friend who took her baby’s heartbeat recording to Build-A-Bear to put inside a bear. She then gave the bear to her mom. I thought it was kind of cool.

  14. I want to hear the heartbeat! I have to admit I thought boy at first but now, not so sure. Figure out the betting pool and I will go both ways. I think baby gets a gift tomorrow, i just feel it.

  15. Congrats to the D3! K and I are doing the mime celebratory dance this very minute.

    Each appointment and every passing day is a new miracle – enjoy this incredible time.

  16. I enjoy your very scientific estimation of Whoorlito at 10 weeks. :)

    I can’t imagine how exciting it must be to hear your little one’s heartbeat for the first time. Congrats again!

  17. 10 cents says its a girl. That’s my very scientific estimation. If it isn’t and you want a girl, I have a screaming vareity you can take home with you right now.

  18. You’ve got mad photoshop skillz.
    I’m having my first sonagram on the 25th. Maybe you can hook me up.

  19. okay, you are hilarious and beautiful and you are growing a baby and that is awesome. why am i just inventing you now? (by inventing, i mean, reading…)

    thank god for sarcomical linking to you otherwise i would have been bored during this conference call!
