For all you music lovers out there...

Well, it's music to my ears at any rate. We rented a fetal doppler for the month that has the ability to record. So, we did just that this morning. LBC's heart beat is now available for sound check on the Milestones page. Sorry if the reception isn't quite the clearest, but we're still playing with the new toy.
Jim ran the .wav file through a program which determined that LBC's heartrate is 139.359, which we can probably safely call 140 bpm.

12 weeks, 0 days

So, reports vary depending on what website I read, but the general consensus seems to be that 12 weeks, 0 days marks the beginning of the second trimester. The logic is that I've gone through 12 weeks of pregnancy by this point, week one starting at 0 weeks, 1 day. Of course, since the average pregnancy is 40 weeks long, the math doesn't seem to work out evenly anyway, but I'll happily take the idea that I'm now out of the first trimester and Little Bear is in a safer place.

Keep your eye out for more LBC pictures as we have a second ultrasound on Monday!
