The heart beating of our little one has definitely been the most exciting part yet. We went in last Tuesday, and at first I felt like I had been hit by a Mack Truck.... my stomach was TURNING with nerves!
Jody was sitting to the bed next to me, and our ultrasound tech was a woman of little words. She inserted the "probe", (ohhh the probe, that I have had ONE to many times already), and doesn't say a word. Jody's holding my hand and focused straight on the ultrasound screen, making weird (confused) facial experssions! Making me more nervous of course. He started asking her questions of what she was seeing and what's that, what's that!! FINALLY, she said she saw everything that she needed to see, heart beat looked great, at 110 bpm- still early but great, and gave us a picture! Luckily, we met with our doctor afterwards, and he reassured us that all looked GREAT and to stop being nervous! (YEAH, RIGHT!!)
Today, we had our 7 week ultrasound and things went MUCH better this appt! We had a different ultrasound tech who was AWESOME, heart beat was at 168 bpm, and all is well! We met with our doctor again, and he told us we can come back one more time in 2 weeks for our final hoo-rah, and then we can start seeing our OB! I had a bittersweet moment when he told us we were done with him... He has been soooo AWESOME to both Jody and I and we can't thank him enough for helping us through this whole journey! BUT.... we are excited to be doing so well, and to finally have a baby on the way, and that I get to go into the real world and see a normal OB! :)
We can't express how excited we truly are. The WHOLE process has been SUCH a blessing and it's amazing looking back in hind sight, and seeing the Lord's hand in every move. He definitely has a plan thats much powerful then ours!! THANK YOU so much for all your sweet thoughts, comments, and support! It has meant the world to us both!!
