Love At First Sight…


Today I got to see my son for the first time!

J and I intently watched the monitor as the technician checked over all the important parts and we were thrilled to learn that the baby was healthy and right on track for size. (though I was hoping to be further along) We got to see him wiggle and rub his head and even do a somersault! The whole experience was peaceful and calm and I knew we were meant to have this baby in our lives.

There is no doubt about the gender. He was very cooperative about that and we have two great pictures to embarrass him with when he is older. We didn’t really have a preference about a boy versus a girl (remember we got rid of everything?), but I’m happy that we’ll be ‘even stevens’ in our house and won’t have to convert the playroom to a bedroom as we were thinking we would.

I was starving (as usual) after the ultrasound so J and I had a fun little lunch date which was a great treat in itself. We were both giddy about the baby, of course, and right there as we ate our yummy Mexican food we picked a name for the newest member of our family. Just like that. Easy.

I’ve been a little anxious about this pregnancy, but after today I feel like I have some concrete evidence that things are just fine. I guess that’s only normal after a miscarriage. I know that it’s not a guarantee that things can’t go wrong, but it seems like everything is finally starting to fall into place for our future. No questions, no doubts, no worries, just enjoying life and all the craziness that comes with it.
