Makin’ us believers
Today was our second ultrasound. And OH MY GOD THERE IS A BABY IN THERE! We had a very early ultrasound done at 8 weeks and although we saw the baby, and his/her little heart beating, it was really still quite hard for us to believe this thing that looked nothing more than a little peanut on the screen, was a baby. Six weeks later and this kid is lookin’ good! It really is incredible how much he/she has grown in such a short period of time. The baby looks almost fully developed but of course we know he/she is still super small. The baby was really active during our screening and we think we even got a few waves and just like the babies father Peter who likes to impress... For the grand finale, our baby did a BACK FLIP right before our eyes and then snuggled back in (back facing us) for some rest. Almost telling us, “the show is over”. It was hard not to clap. Or cry. Peter and I both were teary eyed. I have to admit, all of the sudden being "PREGNANT" is starting to feel pretty real.
