Can't Wait To Meet You!

So today we FINALLY got a chance to see our sweet precious life! We had heard some not so great things about the female sonographer so lots of prayer went to having the male tech but low and behold we got the lady. But, I was pleasantly surprised at how nice she was for not really being able to talk to me about the scan. She spent a good five minutes with Trevor in the room showing us the baby and getting lots of different views. And here is our baby's debut.........
You can see just behind the head up around the forehead is one of it's hands. I had a couple of moments of tears and just being totally overwhelmed with emotion and joy at the incredible blessing growing inside me. She showed us the feet and legs, arms and hands, spine, kidneys, and the heart beating. We got to see "it" opening and closing it's mouth and clenching and un-clenching it's hands. She said the heartbeat was up around 147 bpm. So it seems like everything is all good and well. I will get my results at my next midwife visit in March.
