We saw our baby's heartbeat today! It looked like little lips opening and closing. :>
I was pretty nervous heading into the appointment and I'm so glad Ryan was there with me. What a huge sigh of relief to see that baby Ivey had grown since last week AND had a beating heart. Just amazing.

The nurse told me I measured 6 weeks, 4 days. Which by the way is exactly-to the day how far along I thought I should be. I asked about a due date and she said: December 6th!
I can't think of a better birthday present for Karlyn!
While the sonogram gave me some relief, I can't say that it removes all anxiety. It's still very early and unfortunately we've had the experience of hearing a heartbeat before only to not hear it two weeks later. It was devastating. But. At the same time, I truly truly, deep down in my heart feel that this is it. This is the baby we get to bring home. Please Lord.
I went by Tom Thumb on my way home to get some snacks and I thought this was really cool! As I opened one of them I happened to see the "best by" date stamped at the top of the package.
|How stinkin cool is that???! #sign #ilovesigns|
I really want to tell our familes but haven't decided when that will be yet. Possibly Mother's Day if I can hold out that long. :>
