I guess it's definitely confirmed now.
I was half expecting not to hear anything when he listened for the baby's heartbeat--but there it was loud and clear (and fast!)
There's no hiding it now. Here I am at 13 weeks and I have finally both seen and heard the evidence growing inside my tummy.
Here's a picture of our little surprise:
This was the better of the two pictures we had. This was not the official ultrasound (that will be on the 30th because the technician wasn't there today) but Dr Gordon is awesome (and hilarious by the way--couldn't stop laughing the whole time we were there!) and wanted us to get a little peak anyway. It was a lot clearer, obviously, on the 42" plasma screen they had in the room. We could see his little heart beating and we saw his legs kicking around, we saw his spine very clearly (it's that white line at the top of his body--hard to tell when I'm just explaining it without pointing it out to you in person.) He turned his head away, so we only saw his profile for a moment. It was all so incredible. I'm simply in awe.
Due date is July 25th--we may get a slightly more accurate one at our official ultrasound on the 30th, but Dr Gordon said that it's probably really close to that. Now I'm really excited! Up to this point I was just worried and in total unbelief. Now I have the evidence and assurance I needed and can finally feel like I can my friends. (PS, 20 weeks is March 7th--when we found out if it's a boy or girl--I hope it's a boy)
Katie and Scott... and Baby
