Love At First Sight

We finally got to see our little sprout!

Corey and I left work early today and went to the doctor's office for a chance to finally see our little one.  We got there, signed in, and waited.  Those few minutes seemed to last forever!  i feel like we had already waited so long for this day, and I couldn't wait any longer.

The nurse called us back after only about 15 minutes (it seemed way longer than that).  She weighed me (always my favorite part of going to the doctor) and then left us in the exam room.  I put on that silly hospital gown and then we waited...again.

After what seemed like an eternity, the doctor came in.  He introduced himself and asked if I had any questions.  Of course I didn't.  I never have any questions and I've done A LOT of research about being pregnant.

Then it was time for what Corey and I had been waiting for.  Dr. H turned the screen toward us and we saw our baby for the very first time.  Then we saw a little flicker of a heartbeat.  At that moment, all my fears vanished.  I really am pregnant!  We are going to have a baby!

Dr. H verified that there is only one little on in there (sorry twins) and then started measuring.  That tiny little heart was beating at 167 BPM.  Our little sprout measured 2.19 cm from crown to rump.  Our little one even wiggled a few times for us!  I can't believe our something that little could actually look like a baby.

Dr. H confirmed our estimated due date of January 20th and printed these two pictures for us.  I think I sat and stared at those little pictures for the longest time.  Corey said the smile never left my face.  I was so happy that we finally have proof of our little baby!  I love our little sprout so much already!
