If you are a regular reader of Hip little one you know that I had been preparing our trip to Holland for months. A lot of care went into packing our most beautiful summer clothes and organising the perfect gifts for all my family members. I shared most of the presents with you before we went but there was one little surprise that no one knew about yet… I can tell you that my family was very excited and now the time has come to share with all of you too:

{Sorry, audio file no longer available}

Yes you’ve heard it right, that is the beautiful, amazing, wonderful heartbeat of our 4th baby due in February. I am currently 15 weeks pregnant and obviously we are very excited and feel very blessed to be adding another little munchkin to our family.

I am sure you can imagine that it will be pretty busy for me, in the months leading up to the birth but especially when baby has arrived. In less than 6 months time we will have four wonderful children under 4,5 years old, a busy bunch but all of them so loved and so wanted. Please forgive me if I start making silly mistakes, forget to organise things or miss a daily post here or there, you know there are no bad intentions!

This amazing recording was made using the Sonotech Pro Fetal Doppler from Parents Like Us, a fantastic device that lets you listen to and record your baby’s heartbeat from the comfort of your own home. It is so easy to use and has put our mind at ease quite a few times already. A Sonotech Doppler would make a gorgeous Father’s Day present for an expecting dad, even if he can’t make it to the appointments he can still listen to baby at home!

All Sonotech dopplers ship free of charge with tracking and come complete with 250ml ultrasound gel and 12 months warranty directly through Parents Like Us.
