Baby Love

Today was a special day. I was at work, and this feeling kept eating at me all day. I needed to see my baby! I haven't seen much, other than a flicker of a heartbeat. So, I asked one of the Drs. in the office if their was anything in this growing belly of mine. He said, "well, let's take a look and see!" The day got busy and far too overwhelming. With all the patients coming in and out of the office today, I was afraid to ask the Dr. if we could still do the ultrasound. Finally, I got the nerve to ask, and he had just a short window of time to do it. I was afraid it would be another void uterus, shown on the screen. But, this time it was very different. After just a few seconds, it appeared! Our baby was right in front of my eyes. I saw hands, legs, a body and a head with the most adorable little nose and mouth! Although, the features weren't fully developed, they were there and they were part of my doing. The baby was kicking and flailing it's arms all over the place, going from side to side and then up on it's head! With that vision, I'm a little concerned at how active and capable this child will be. All in all, it was a short but beautiful moment in my day. The only part that I would take back if I could, would be to have had my Andrew there to catch a glimpse of our creation. Next week I have my first real doctor's visit and hopefully we will do an ultrasound with Daddy present.
