Love at First Sight

I didn't sleep at all last night. I laid awake in bed worrying about what today's appointment would hold for us. I dozed several times, but between my pulse racing and my heart pounding, I really did not get much rest.

We got to the doctor's office and I was quite shaky. Rob tried to distract me and make me laugh, and it worked a few times. We went into our exam room, I hopped up on the table and we waited for what seemed like forever. I was so scared at what we might/might not see that I started to cry as Rob hugged me. It felt like such a defining moment in our lives-- the point where we say "This is really happening!" or we realize that we're right back to where we started from...

Well, I'm happy to say, this is really happening!

Baby Blakely is measuring right on schedule at 6w6d, and our due date is exactly what we thought it would be-- September 14th, 2010.

We saw the beautiful heartbeat-- I didn't get a specific number, but the doctor mentioned that she could see it was over 100. We took a short video -- you might be able to catch a glimpse of it.

We're so happy-- I think that we're both still in shock, a little bit. But it's starting to sink in, and I'm so excited to tell my parents in less than two weeks!! We are so thankful that everything went well today-- Thank you to everyone to who has been sending good thoughts our way!
