Sometimes, you just have to listen to your heart. You need to brush aside the web of fear and let hope shine through.
Too sappy and melodramatic perhaps?
Maybe, but there are few words to describe the emotions rolling through me as we watched Bean bounce around like a nut, making it difficult for my OB to get a heart rate. But the heart fluttered so beautifully.
She did a vaginal ultrasound, so we got to see so much detail. Bean measured 2.33 cm making my date of 9wks 5 days bang on. My self-prescribed due date of Oct.15 was confirmed. I got a prescription for my nausea which I'l be picking up tomorrow. Can't wait to start feeling somewhat normal again.
The most amazing part was seeing Bean's fingers. Tiny little digits I can't even imagine being so tiny. My OB said that while we may not want to shout it to the world just yet, but things are looking really positive. We could make plans for future tests and scans. And make further appointments. Both my OB (whom I absolutely love!) and her asistant kept telling us Congratulations.
It's been a year since we first started trying to have a baby. I'm 10 weeks tomorrow. 2 more weeks and then we can share our news.
By golly, I think we've got ourselves a baby!
