So we had our ultrasound . . . .
I posted this on facebook yesterday before leaving:
Ultrasound today!! ♥ We will be finding out if it’s blue or pink – and I’ll let you all know tomorrow!
Can’t stop the butterflies, though. I’m hoping and praying it’s a healthy baby – whether it’s blue or pink or purple!
Truth is . . . we’re stuck with purple for now!
We found out that this baby is stubborn as he would not part his legs enough for us to tell. All the poking and prodding did nothing to make him rearrange his favored position. Plus the umbilical cord was in the way, making it even harder to tell.
So we have decided to be pleasantly surprised come July!
Before we left, Wyatt was so excited to see our “baby bump”.
Even though we did not get to find out what gender this munchkin is, this mama got to see and hear everything she needed to let her enjoy this pregnancy. It’s been over eight years since we had an ultrasound like this one and it amazes me at what they can tell you – and all you can see!
We got to see the four chambers of the heart, the kidneys, the brain, its spine, all its arms and legs, little toes, the placenta and its three vessels, the baby’s face, and even a miniature thumb.
Truth is, I was scared at what we might find. I’ve worried over this pregnancy more than any other. And I told Lowell that I think it’s because the older I get, the more I personally know and realize that life is not guaranteed.
Yet I also remembered that God gives grace in our moments of weakness.
Until the day I die, it will not cease to amaze me at what a great God we have.
a little human being like the one I saw yesterday? }
