|can you see that sweet lil profile???|
I remember at our 8 week ultrasound...it was the first time we ever saw the baby. On the walk from our apartment to the doctor's office we were kindof nervous that maybe there wasn't really going to be a baby on the screen. You know, if it was possible that the 6 pregnancy tests I had taken, and the blood test were all wrong? Like maybe, it was all in my head or something. I can't explain where that uncertainty came from - perhaps we were still in shock that we were going to have a baby in the first place.
But it wasn't a fluke. Thank goodness! We saw the lil tike and our world changed.
The 12 weeks ultrasound was CA-RAZY. The lil guy was squirming and wiggling and stretching! We could see his legs and arms and FINGERS and TOES and profile...and there were a couple shots on the ultrasound where I swear the baby was waving at us with his hands wide open. I cried a little bit. Nobody noticed...I'm kindof stealthy when it comes to tears in public.
The Ultrasound Tech was amazing. She kept telling us how CUTE and ADORABLE our baby was...and she would gasp right along with us when the baby would start rolling around or stretch his limbs or dance right there in my belly. Pretty much the perfect reaction two newbie parents want to hear. Confirmation that yes, our child is remarkable. It made is us smile at each other.
So, no wonder my belly is always nauseated...I have a lil break dancer in there shakin' things up!! (though...now at 15 weeks, I have to say, the nausea is starting to substantially subside...yay!)
*did you notice how I refer to the baby as a boy? I think it's a little dude...a subject I will certainly write more about later. Tommy is convinced it's a little girl because the profile is so sweet looking ;-)
