My nerves were about shot as we sat in the waiting room at MFM for almost two hours waiting for our ultrasound. This was a big appointment for us. We hadn't had a baby make it this far. When they finally called us back and put that lovely gunk on my belly all of my worries disappeared.

I could not believe how much bigger our baby had grown in those few short weeks. I immediately saw that little flutter of a heart and my own heart melted in that moment. There it was. The miracle we have been praying for for so long.
Our ultrasound tech felt so bad that we waited so long (apparently there was a bit of a mix up on their part) that she made little videos for us! The little angel had hiccups and when they finished he/she continued stretching his/her arms and legs. It was such an incredible moment. We were able to see both arms and both legs and I could have sworn I saw a little penis peek out but I am no expert. Only time will tell :)
I cannot explain the amount of joy and excitement I have right now. I feel like I might burst!
Since things are going so well we don't have to return to MFM for another ten weeks. We see my regular OB on Friday so I'm sure there will be more pictures then :)
