Sometimes things don’t seem real until you see them with your own eyes.
When I saw the positive result on the test, I was in disbelief. And as time passed and I felt sick and tired all the time, I knew that something was happening but I didn’t really see any changes. And, most people keep their news a secret since the change for miscarriage is highest in the first trimester. So I silently suffered and celebrated each day.
Doug attended every since doctor’s visit. For obvious reasons, this appointment was one of the most special for us to share. Neither one of us knew what to expect or what we would see. At eight weeks there really isn’t a defined shape yet. But the second we saw the little heartbeat pumping, we were both so in awe of our little baby growing. It truly is such a miracle to see a small life developing inside you. And even though I had been feeling sick and tired and crabby, it all seemed so insignificant compared to the beauty of the moment that we first saw LBD.
They printed us a few pictures and we literally looked at them all night long. It was incredible that this small blob would soon grow and become our baby. We couldn’t wait to share the news any longer.
