Today had to be the best day ever!!! Nathan and I were so excited for it to be the day that we got to see our baby.
My appointment was at 9:15am. Nathan followed me there. Thankfully we made it on time despite the traffic. As soon as I walked into the waiting room I signed in and then went to pee in a cup (that's going to become part of the norm, oh joy!). As soon as I came back and about to sit I was called back. Nathan and I were taken to a room for the ultrasound. I think we were both happy it was happening first. The lady came in and got everything started. All I can say is wow!!! I couldn't believe we were looking at our baby. One baby to be exact!! It brought tears to my eyes. The lady informed me that I was actually 13wks and 4 days along instead of 12wks and 4 days. The other night I had a distinct feeling that I was further along then I was told. My due date is still the same. She measured the baby and the babies heartbeat. Our baby's heartbeat is 154 beats per minute. Very awesome! It was so cute to see our baby sucking on his/her thumb. The lady said she was going to wake up the baby. She pressed my stomach and finally the baby kicked. As soon as I saw him/her kick I started laughing. My laughing really woke the baby up. The baby was moving all over the place. He/she even picked up his/her little arms and put them in front of his/her face. Almost like he/she was playing peek-a-boo. My heart melted. I couldn't help but shed tears while I was seeing and listening to my baby. Even Nathan's eyes got all watery. :)This was seriously the most AMAZING experience!!!! We both will never forget it.
The rest of my appointment went very well. I was so happy that Nathan stayed with me the rest of my visit. He has no idea how much it meant to me. I'm so thankful that I have such a wonderful husband. He's my rock. I know he's going to make an awesome Daddy. :) God has truly blessed me in more ways than one!
Here's our baby's first pictures!!!!
I think this one is my favorite, because you can see baby's nose & mouth so well. :)
One of my faves!
Our baby has a strong heartbeat!
Look at my alien baby! lol
