After all of the thoughtless comments from random people, not trying to be discouraging, but in fact were just that...I had practically convinced myself that I was going to miscarry, due to statistics (old-wives tales) and the fact that my morning sickness hasn't been bad. Well, I should have been listening to God instead. (Sigh)
Today we went to the OB (who by they way is the best ever) for our first ultrasound! The doctor said that seeing the heartbeat at this point is so important in determining whether or not it's a viable pregnancy. He was gentle in explaining it, I imagine in the case that there wasn't a heartbeat or other problems. He said the risk of miscarriage would greatly decrease with seeing the heartbeat! It was unbelievable and such a relief! We got to see the baby's heartbeat, then we heard it! It was so loud and strong. The doctor congratulated us immediately and somehow now it all seems more real! YAY! Our due date is June 23, 2009!
BEAUTIFUL! Words cannot express the feeling of seeing the bompbomp of little Appleseeds heart! It's a beautiful miracle!
