Little Bit's Photo Shoot

I wrote this post last Monday right after our first sonogram even though it is being posted today. I was waiting on our Little Bit's pictures and I finally got them today:)


Today Chad and I were able to experience something that was like nothing either of us have ever experienced.  We had our first sonogram today and it was nothing shy of amazing!  Instantly we were able to see our baby and make out what everything was. From the heart beating away, to the little feet, to the little hands, to the brain, spine and full on view of he/she's face. I didn't cry but I felt the most overwhelming sense of joy like nothing I have ever felt before. Little bit is such a wiggle worm. He/She was moving all over the place and in all different directions.  Which is so hard for me to fathom because I don't feel that movement yet. I know that it is coming and I cannot wait for that moment when I feel he/she's movement for the first time. Looking at the screen I was in complete awe of how amazing God is and how everyone is created in His image. It is an absolute miracle - what is taking place in my body is overwhelming and I am so thankful that it is His hands shaping and molding our baby into His vision.  Today will be a day that I remember for the rest of my life. My doctor was very pleased with the growth of the baby and how things are progressing. I will go back in 4 weeks for another check-up and then when I am 20 weeks we will go for my ultra sound to find out what we are having.  That will take place in September and September is right around the corner.  Everything is going beautifully and again I am so thankful to God for allowing me to experience all that I am.
