We got to see the baby today!!!
My friend Sarah & her baby came along to help wrangle our rug rat & share in this amazing memory with us. She took a little family shot of the 3 of us as we watched our precious baby floating around in my belly on the TV screen. AND she helped feed Conrad Gushers to keep him quiet!
When I was pregnant with Conrad, he was always so active, and this baby just sort of sits there like a little tiny blob. Maybe that's why feeling him/her kick gets me so excited. It happens so seldom.
I've got a really lazy little baby, but that's OK with me.
I hope the baby's nose isn't so flat in real life.
(I'm sure it was just the angle or something but dang, what's going on with that nose?!)
Seeing our baby's tiny toes, fingers and spine really made me grow so much closer to this little person. I am in total awe that my body can sustain life. Everything I put in my body goes towards forming this precious person's organs, head, lips....It leaves me in awe that a person is growing within me. Even though I've experienced it once before, it seems so new and miraculous to me again.
We were all taking predictions during the ultrasound whether the baby was a boy or a girl.
I really didn't get a girl vibe or a boy vibe, so we'll have to just wait and see.
The Doctor wouldn't budge and spill the beans.
*I go back in 6 weeks for another ultrasound since they found a cyst in the baby's brain. They want to see if it's going to dissolve on it's own or if they need to do further testing. The doctor said they usually go away in the latter part of the 2nd trimester, but we're going to keep praying for our baby's growth and development and stay confident in our God, knowing that he works out everything for our good and for his glory, no matter what happens. We know he has a beautiful plan for this little life.
The excitement & joy is growing by the minute!
