Yesterday was a very, very special and happy day around here. We had our second midwife visit and we got to hear our baby's little heart beating for the first time. I honestly didn't expect to be as overwhelmed with joy as I was and even looking at the pictures makes my eyes a little watery.
Denay was so sweet and got very still when she heard the noise. Kate, our midwife, said it was time to say bye to baby and she walked over and waved at the heart rate monitor.
:: What a beautiful number ::
:: Mommy teary and excited telling Denay that the sound was baby's heart ::
And I will add that my husband did a fabulous job setting the camera by himself to get these great shots for me!
Things pregnancy-wise are still going really well. I'm feeling good and loving having another life making home inside me. Today I am 13 weeks and baby is about three inches long......I am daily overwhelmed by the beauty and miracle of life and humbled with gratitude that I was chosen to carry and care for this baby.
What a journey!
