Hi.

I'm documenting my journey to motherhood while sharing my favorites and tips along the way. I'm so glad you're here.

I was so looking forward to our first ultrasound.

I got up and did my hair, put on a cute outfit, and we drove the few miles in -8 weather to the clinic. 

"I know one thing, the baby is going to be cute" the front desk clerk remarked. I wanted to kiss her. 

They called us back. 

Our tech was cheerful, chipper, and very sweet. We settled into our room, dimly lit, and held our breathes while a grainy black and white image appeared on a screen. 

A tiny figure. 

Silhouetted inside an oblong oval. 

A flutter of a heart.

"Hi baby!" 

Miraculous. Wonderful. Thank you, Lord. 

I'll skip the part about the vaginal ultrasound and how the doctor came in and didn't even say hello to us ;) But, it's cool to see your ovaries. I'm not going to lie about that one bit. 

We have a healthy, happy baby. With a very healthy heartbeat. 

See also how it lays on its side. It's into chilling. It's our very own Netflix n' Chill baby.
