The Sweet Lil' One Inside

We saw the baby today. I'm not really sure how to put into words how I feel. I woke up this morning thinking, "Today I get to see my baby!" Then I got nervous. Then I got excited. Then, when the living, live, actual baby was on the screen, I got emotional.

We saw the face.
We saw the head.
We saw the forehead.
We saw the arms.
We saw the hands.
We saw the fingers.
We saw the legs.
We saw the feet.
We saw the toes.
We saw the spine.
We saw the heart beat.

We saw the baby put his/her finger in his/her mouth and then pull it out.
We saw the baby have the hiccups.
All of this was going on inside of me - LIVE.
It is a miracle.

2 Things:
1) I'm especially fond of the baby's nose. It was precious.
2) No, we did not find out the gender of the wee one. For those of you who are about to go crazy not knowing - enjoy the ride with us...we don't know either...and what a fun, intense, crazy, exciting, thrilling, emotional moment we will have when the baby is born, and the doctor says,
"It's a ______!"
I'm teary just thinking about it.

I just wish I could go back and have another peek tomorrow and the next day and the next day and the next day and the next day and...well, you get the idea.

    Soak it all in and enjoy each moment!
    I'm SOOO glad you are waiting to find out the sex of the baby . .. it's the sweetest moment ever!!! I still get chills thinking of hearing those announcements!!

    Let me just say... What a fun, intense, crazy, exciting, thrilling, emotional moment you WILL have when the baby is born... whether you know the sex or not!!
