want to see a picture of our kid?!

i won't bore you. it's just one!

james has been working from 6am yesterday to 6am today. so i scheduled it real early this morning so we could go and he can sleep all afternoon. i was too impatient to schedule later in the day! so we headed out at 7:30.

i was so nervous. especially when they took me back to the same room i had the last one in. the one where i knew something bad was happening. i laid there staring at the same darn flower paintings on the wall hoping this one would have better news.

and it went well!

they said i am earlier than i thought. she had my due date as 22sep. almost a week after what we thought. i am 100% certain on the start of my last period. our doctor will let us know on thursday more details and stuff.

right now the baby is the size of a piece of rice, but we got to see it's heartbeat and the little arm and leg buds. it even flapped an arm bud for us! :)

they said everything looked good. the heartbeat was 125. anything over 100 is good!

they checked every little part of me out and measured it all. it was crazy. i never knew you are supposed to develop a cyst on one of your ovaries. it supports baby until the placenta can. interesting.

she also said since james is tall i'll likely go early. i never heard that before either!

anyways, here's bean's first picture...

(the arrow is pointing to it...the circle is the yolk sac.)

God is so good! Babies are just simply amazing. Made me tear up seeing that little miracle. I'm remembering how excited we were when we found out we were pregnant with each of the boys...and then all of our ultrasounds to make sure they were developing well. I loved that we got to have so many ultrasounds at the beginning and had the opportunity to see our little ones develop. Much love sent your way!

I'm so glad everything is going well. Nothing beats seeing that first ultrasound for calming fears! :) Just wait until you get to hear the heartbeat. :) Love.

You can have the date of your last period right and it be a different due date because you might have ovulated later than normal.

Glad to hear good news :)
