Coming July 2012...

I'd say our biggest news right now is that we're expecting a little one to come in July! We are very excited and anxious of the new life that awaits us. It is all starting to feel more real now. Before it was mostly nausea and the ever so slightly tightening of my shirts...oh, and naps. Lots of those. Three weeks ago, we went for the big 12 week appointment. It was supposed to just be what the doctor called a "boring" appointment. We weren't supposed to see an ultrasound- we'd quickly get a chance to hear the heart beat (certainly a very special moment-but also surprisingly rushed) and then it was mostly blood work. Lucky for us, our doctor was stuck in surgery and there was a little wait time. Our nurse offered to give us an ultrasound while we waited. We gladly accepted!

We were absolutely amazed at what we got to see. I wouldn't normally think to share an ultrasound picture, but this one is just too precious and much of the reason for why my pregnancy has become more real. No longer was our little one just something that was the size of a lime-but it was someone, someone with little hands and little feet...and the tiniest toes you'll ever see. See what I mean...
