this place used to be more fun

i used to have fun things to talk about but honestly for the last two months there hasn't been the greatest news to share...with one exception of course.
this is our little jelly bean. at the end of the week i will be 9 weeks and it feels like it's been nine years already.
the dr. wanted to do an ultra sound because of my history and the tech says that so far everything looks good and it's heart rate is normal.
you guys, i don't understand abortion. i can understand being afraid for many reasons over pregnancy and my heart goes out to the girls and women who feel that this is their only option. there is no WAY that after seeing what i saw at just 8 weeks gestation that anyone can argue that this is not a person.
there was a tiny heart just beating away in there and every time the tech would move the US machine around the baby would jump as to say, "yeah that's me, i'm right here." clearly responding to the stimulation. it is such an amazing thing to see so early on. only the size of a kidney bean but doing people things, responding. AMAZING!
i am feeling a bit better, though i do have yet another illness and other random things that i won't bore you with but my nausea is nowhere near as bad as it was over the last few weeks.
next time i'm going to share something non-pregnancy and non-sick related. :)

I think everyone should have an early ultrasound. It helps remind you why you're HAPPY to be pregnant! It really is amazing...that little jelly bean will be a living, breathing little person with his or her own little personality! Glad you're feeling better!

I am with you on the abortion thing. Heavenly Father is amazing, that little baby has a heart beating so fast, nothing is sweeter. Hang in there, I am sure you know it will be so worth it in the end. I can't wait to see how cute he/she will be, your kids are beautiful and not to mention Tatum is rather funny:)

Glad things are going well! Glad you little bebe is excited to be in there!
My OB gave me an ultrasound the first few visits, and I loved that reassurance of a little life in there!

Sarah said...

Yeah...what a cute little bean. I am so glad that everything looks normal with the baby. When I say normal it just doesn't sound good enough. So I am so glad that everything looks great, wonderful, marvelous with the baby. I am glad that you are starting to feel a little better.
