A Little Sneak Peek

Today was by far the most exciting day since I found out I was pregnant! I went to Dr. Shields for my 14 week appointment and got a huge surprise...my FIRST ultrasound!! I started by asking why they do not do an early ultrasound, and after hearing her explanation (it is basically an insurance thing) I proceeded to ask if I can pay for one out of pocket. She laughed at my suggestion but I guess she felt sorry for me when I told her I have been having weird dreams about things that can go wrong with the baby, etc... She told the nurse to go and get the machine, and the next thing I knew, we were getting a sneak peak of little baby Lyon! It was amazing. Even my Mom was speechless. (She went with me just for fun!) First of all, I was surprised that the baby did not look like a jelly bean, which is what I kept picturing, and we couldn't believe how active he/she was! Little one was stretching his/her little arms out and kicking his/her little legs, and I think he/she even did a somersault or two!! The only thing I regret about the experience is that Clark was not there, but he will get to see this amazing baby in 4 weeks!! Thanks, Dr. Shields, for putting me at ease and helping me realize there really is a real, live baby in my belly!

You are lucky you have an understanding doctor. We were lucky, too, and had a lot more ultrasounds than normal. You got a good profile picture, too! I can't wait to find out if little baby Lyon is going to be a boy or a girl... are you going to tell people?
