We had our ultrasound yesterday, and it was so much fun!! These past several weeks were very weird because I was too early to feel the baby move, and yet far enough along that I haven't felt the nausea or extreme fatigue like I did in my first trimester. I began to wonder if this whole pregnancy thing was for real (except for the fact that many of my pants no longer fit and when I look down I can see my belly pooching out...new experience).
It was amazing to see the baby on the ultrasound!! I loved seeing Baby E moving, flipping over and moving his or her legs and arms. I also loved seeing all of the details...the brain, the kidneys, the stomach, the bladder, the femur, everything was amazing, but what I think I loved seeing the most was the little heart. I guess I love it so much because it represents life to me, that which we never saw with our first baby. This whole experience has reminded me life is such a miracle, to think that this baby is being knit together inside me is awe-inspiring. This new life is such a blessing and a miracle!
I know many are wondering whether or not we found out the sex. Yes and no. Yes because the ultrasound tech saw the sex, wrote it on a piece of paper, and gave it to us in an envelope. I have it in my possession, but we are having a gender reveal party on Saturday with family and friends. I'll post pictures afterwards!
