Today's The Big Day.... It's A Girl!!!!!!!

We had our ultrasound appointment tonight which we have both been very excited for. Tonight was the night that they did a thorough ultrasound and also the night that we could find out the sex of the baby. When she first started, she said that it the baby was in one of the hardest positions to tell whether it was a boy or a girl. She continued on with the ultrasound and took pictures of its entire body. It was quite amazing to see each part of our baby and we watched it moving around. Then she asked us if she could tell us at any point what the sex was, and soon after announced that its a GIRL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am so excited!!!!!!!!!

Our One-Inch Bean

Today was a once in a lifetime day. Why you ask, because today we got to see our little baby's heartbeat. I don't know much about the whole pregnancy process but I can say that when you see the little blip on the screen and hear the syncopated wut-wut-wut you instantly know your life will never be the same again.

It was amazing to see this little living baby for the first time. Seeing the heart beating made me realize that this whole thing is real. It is truly a miracle to know that I will be carrying this baby for the next several months.

Today the baby moved, and i felt it!

Today I felt the baby moving for the first time! It was very exciting and even though I have been waiting and waiting, it was a little unexpected. It felt different than I expected although I didn't really know what I was waiting for. I am looking forward to seeing this baby grow and I am getting more and more excited for our ultrasound on Dec 23-I can't wait to see how much different the baby is since the last one and find out whether it is a he or a she.

Monthly Appointment

Today was our monthly appointment. At the last appointment, the doctor was unable to find the heartbeat which was a little scary but we got a surprise ultrasound (which revealed everything was fine) and got to take a peek at the baby. Today, she had no problems at all-she found it immediately and it was amazing to hear that little heartbeat for the first time!! The whole thought that we will have a baby next year at this time is such a wonderful thought. I can't wait to meet this little person that will be a little part of each of us.
