Jeff and I have had a lot going on, a lot of stress... but on Friday, when we got to hear (and see!) that amazing little heart beat, it's like the world stopped for a minute. All the difficulties that have been surrounding us were gone in that moment and all we could do is listen and look in pure awe. I still find it hard to believe there is this little creation growing inside me. Sometimes (especially with stuff that has been going on) I feel like I forget that I'm pregnant. (Of course my always prevalent nausea attempts to help remind me). But when we get to see that little miracle on the screen, it's so real.

We go back at 11.5 weeks and I can't wait! The doctor is going to already look and see if he can distinguish if it is a boy or a girl. It will be really early, so I'm not going to get my hopes too high, but he's an amazing doctor so we'll see!
