Heart beat!

Bran and I got to see the baby's heart beat yesterday!! It's just so amazing.... Where there was a shapeless blob a week ago (turns out that is the amniotic sac), we can now see the teeny tiny baby inside!! And, we could see the heart beating. The doctor told us that the baby is 7.5mm long, which is huge compared to what it was, but still so tiny!

I found myself feeling both awed and humbled. It still hasn't fully sunken in, that I'm going to be a mommy. And I have this tiny, amazing little person growing in my belly. Utterly amazing. Brandon was obviously just as impressed by the experience as I was. He just could not stop talking about it, all night last night. It made me feel good. :)


  1. It still hasn't sunk in that I'm a mommy. I'm not kidding! I am constantly thinking "I have TWO girls!", "These are MINE!", oh my god, I'm a mom!" and so on. I really really do say these things to jon all the time. Ask him, he'll tell you it's getting old:)

  2. Ha! That's so funny! Sometimes I wonder why there is no Mommy living in our house! I guess we all go through those feelings of inadequacy. (SP?) But the kids usually turn out just fine! Hehe!

    It's really cool that your hubby was so interested in the lima bean phase. Most men won't get really interested until you can tell it's a baby. Have fun with it!

  3. You will have a lifetime to get used to it... really, you never will. Remember though the days seem long, the years fly by.
