Perfection

I'm so in love!!  Today was our 20 week ultrasound and I think I held my breath the whole time.  I can't accurately describe the feelings that come with each ultrasound I've had...nervousness, anticipation, fear, excitement- all rolled into one big ball of emotions.

I had wondered for a long time if I would ever be in this place...20 weeks pregnant and looking at my very own little girl on an ultrasound.

It is truly amazing how much she has grown since we last saw her!!

We got to see the four chambers of her little heart, her kidneys, the hemispheres of her brain, her spine, stomach and of course the cutest little face, hands and feet I've ever seen!  


I think she's smiling :)

tiny hands and feet

beautiful!

Although this journey has been a tough one so far, I wouldn't trade it for anything.  I know that sounds a little crazy but I have so much appreciation for this little life and the science that helped make her possible. We are blessed to have parents who helped us get here and we are forever grateful. 
I also can't thank Steve enough for keeping me calm (and sane) through everything that has been thrown at us.  He always knows when I need to be reminded of what great parents we are going to be.  I know I have said it before, but he is going to be the most patient and caring dad in the world.  I know this because that's what kind of husband he is; always reassuring and kind.

  1. She is just so beautiful! And this whole experience makes her even MORE beautiful! I love how infertility brings on a sense of appreciation that we would not otherwise have. I have an ultrasound today and I am feeling the same emotions you felt...all rolled into one! :)
