A break from normal photography to hear our baby's heart beat.

April 20, 2012  •  4 Comments

As many of you already know, my wife Becca and I are expecting our first child.  Today was the second time we got to hear the heart beat.  Unfortunately, I didn't bring any recording devices for the first time, but I was prepared today.  By the time this video was recorded, boredom and crazy feelings were starting to set in.  Our appointment was scheduled for 8:15 AM... We got in pretty quick, but then were sitting in the exam room for almost an hour by the time I recorded this...  We were getting delusional... At least I was!!  So, enjoy the goofiness, but the last 17 seconds are really what I'm sharing.  Our baby's heart was beating at 156 beats per minute!  During our first session it was about 169-170 bpm.  The last part of this video is just the audio of our child's heart beating.  A tiny, lemon sized little Monahan heart beating.  :)  Thanks for looking!
