Today was beyond a doubt one of the most emotionally charged days of my life. I don’t think I have ever been so very overwhelmed. It is funny to think what an ultrasound can do to you.
Before our appointment I was beyond stressed. I have been consistently POAS just to have some physical evidence that we still had a positive. Which, in hindsight, was a little much seeing as I am still exhausted and I have been feeling more and more queasy. But hormones can’t be reasoned with as we all know.
So fast forward to the ultrasound. As soon as the image came up on the screen, I just stopped breathing. I remember the Hubs taking my hand. And then Dr. Phy said: There’s the heart.
It was so beautiful that my heart stopped.
Such a fast little flicker. A gorgeous thick placenta. Perfect yolk sack. And that amazing flicker!!! I remember the Hubs softly laughing next to me and them giving me a kiss. We just couldn’t take our eyes off that screen.
But it was hearing that tiny heart beat that brought tears to my eyes. How is it possible that I could literally fall in love with a sound? Whoosh-whoosh-whoosh-whoosh
June bug is perfect. Measures a day older than our gestimated date at 6w6d. Due date is December 17th. Heart rate is 137bpm.
This is love.
