From this moment.....

We saw the baby for the first time on Monday. I was absolutely speechless. I still can't believe it... still makes me cry to think about it. It's kind of a long story so I'm going to copy my post I made on my baby website. Thanks for checkin' in on us. Hope you're having the good weather that we are having here in the mountains.

We saw our baby for the first time yesterdayLaughing No... it's not March 17th yet. That was the day we were supposed to see it. Unfortunately, I had some scares over the weekend and the doctor thought it would be good to come in on Monday to have my ultrasound. Can I mention how much I love Dr. Keever? She is amazing. She was there for me holding my hand over the phone and making me feel so much better. She's the kind of person who is straight forward. I don't appreciate fluff and B.S., so I like her so much more for that. The baby is looking sooo good. I'm officially 8 weeks and one day along today. I couldn't believe how clear the picture was of our little peanut. It was sooo shocking to really come to the realization that IT REALLY DID HAPPEN, AND THERE'S SOMETHING GROWING INSIDE OF MESmile! That little heart beat was just a thumping away. It definitely brought me to tears. I'll never forget seeing it for the first time. I could tell Phillip was moved as well. Baby G still has a little tail, and it's so very clear in the picture. We got to see the little arm stubs were the arms will eventually be growing. I've seen other ultrasound pics at my pregnancy date and it was just a little blob, not this one! We've got an over-achiever! I was not ready for the process to be over. We got some good pictures of it, but I still see that little heart thumping in my mind and I wish I had a machine of my own so I can see it any time I want! The baby is looking good, according to doc. They are worried though because it implanted low. Since the baby implanted low, my placenta is on the very tip of my cervix (placenta previa is what it's called). The doctors are hoping that the placenta and baby will move up in my uterus while it grows. I just need to make sure there's nothing strenuous going on and just take it easy. We go back in 10 weeks for our next ultra sound, to make sure things are moving and growing correctly... AND WE FIND OUT IF IT'S A BOY OR GIRL!!! Yippppeeee skippppeeee!!!Surprised It seems soooo far away! But anyway, hopefully we can get the pics scanned soon and have them on the web for you. Thanks for caring about us and Baby G and checking on us! We all love you!

awwwww... what a fun time. :)

I tried twice to find out the sex, but Violet was not cooperating. Finally, on the third try, we found out she was a she. So exciting!! (I was something like 6 or 7 months along, and it was driving me crazy not knowing)
