First Ultrasound

12 Weeks 6 days
This experience was unlike any I've ever had. Everyone always says how incredible it is to hear the baby's heart beat and see the baby moving inside of you, but I guess until you experience it you really just don't know.
I am not showing too much, especially when this was taken and so the fact that it only took her a couple of seconds to find this big (at least on the screen) baby moving all around was unbelievable. The pictures really do not do it justice. On the screen the little babe was jumping and turning and kicking and you could see his little toes and fingers and his head and heart pumping. Even when I laughed you could see the whole baby move up and down. It was an awe inspiring moment. God has truly given us a gift. What a creator he is....that he lets us join in the joy of sharing that responsibility. For a moment you catch a glimpse of something far bigger and more powerful than yourself and you can't help but be moved to tears.
Dan was sitting at the end of the bed and he kept grabbing my leg and saying "Oh my gosh there's a baby in there!" As though we didn't know! Needless to say he was excited.

In the second picture you can see the baby's toes and feet. See it?

In the third picture you can see his little elbow bent like he was sucking his thumb.
