A touching moment

Today, I heard the heart beating of my coming baby.

Although I have known it for weeks that my wife is pregnant – both the pregnancy test both at home and at family doctor’s say so, and her pregnancy response has been pretty strong – I just had a little difficulty accepting the fact there is another life in her belly. It is still flat, and I could not feel any legs kicking or else. It is like consciously I know a baby must be there, and the baby must be so tiny at this stage, yet emotionally, viscerally, I could not feel the existence of my baby.

Until I heard the heart beating sound at the OBGYN’s exam room.

The beating is pretty fast. Probably 200 beats per minute? I vaguely had the impression that I read it some time ago, but  I have not checked it out at wikipedia. This is something that the exact knowledge does not count – who cares. The beating is there, announcing the existence of a life. This is the life that my wife and I created! At that moment, my eyes became welled. So happy now.
