Hello, Baby!…A Glimpse into My Pregnancy Journal

I’ve started writing letters to the Baby during this journey in a pregnancy journal. Here’s a glimpse into what I wrote about this picture of 9-week old sweetheart!

Hello Baby!

We met your new doctor today (7/13/2012). You managed to scare the heck out of us at the beginning of the appointment- the doctor couldn’t find your heartbeat on an abdominal doppler machine. You remained quite elusive even after his second attempt to find you using a different machine. The doctor and your Dad tried to calm my fears but nervous anticipation clouded the room. To double check everything, the doctor performed an ultrasound. 

You were definitely bouncing inside of me with a strong heartbeat. The doctor reassured us immediately that you were doing well. He then spent some time focusing on different angles to show us your developing spinal cord, the arteries in your head that will form your brain, the placenta, and the umbilical cord. He also printed off the most adorable picture of you! You are so precious. It’s hard to believe that you already have little arms and legs (and a gigantic head!).  

Your Grandma just about lost it when I showed her the ultrasound pic. She is beyond excited for your arrival! 

I love you,
Mom
