First Ultrasound!

This past week was such an amazing week of bonding with the sweet little baby in my belly!  On Monday I had an appointment with my OB and it was at that appointment that I got to hear the baby's heartbeat for the first time with the nurse!  I couldn't believe that what I was listening to was my baby's heartbeat... it was VERY surreal and amazing.  I didn't think that the week could get any better but our first ultrasound was this week as well!  (Thankfully Tony got to be there for that because he missed out on the heartbeat and I felt SO bad that he didn't get to be there for that.)  So anyways, the ultrasound was a little uncomfortable since they had to do it vaginally - but it was completely worth it because not only did we get a sweet picture of the babe, but we got to see him/her move around.  I was seriously in awe and completely unable to speak during the whole ordeal.  Our baby even danced around while we were watching and it was the best thing I have ever seen!!!

 That's our sweet little baby!

During the ultrasound, Tony and I each separately came to the conclusion that we think it's a boy based on the baby's movements and just to overall feeling we got!  Isn't that crazy?!  All along I've been hoping for a girl and now I totally am hoping for either sex - depending on my current mood!  I am just starting to get SO excited and I just feel that this is REAL and that next year we are going to be PARENTS!!!  Even though that last part still blows my mind, I am so glad that I am feeling more excited and more ready for this journey.  And even though this is not the path we would have chosen for our life at the moment -- I am finally getting the feeling that this is totally where we needed to be at this moment.  Our God is so awesome at giving what is asked of Him; I've been asking for peace and right now I am definitely feeling it.  We also made it facebook official this week so all our friends and family know and have shown us sooo much love and support which has helped TREMENDOUSLY.  We are so incredibly blessed.

I hope everybody feels at peace over the weekend about their life -- maybe over something that has been troubling you or even in a decision that needs to be made -- because giving your worries to someone who has a bigger plan for you is such a great feeling.


  1. Isn't it wonderful to see the baby on the ultrasound for the first time! I felt the same way, it's so surreal to see that baby. Congrats :)

  2. @Megan It was so awesome! I really had been feeling a bit disconnected from the baby, I guess?, and it was definitely a weird/awesome moment to finally see that - YES, there is something growing in there! :)
