Y'all. Y'ALL. !!!!!!!
I went in for my checkup today (nearly 13 weeks), and we were quite floored with what went down. As the doctor pushed and wagged the ultrasound stick all over my belly, I thought I saw something. I didn't say anything. She checked the heartbeat and it was SO strong and beautiful. In the 150's. Immediately, I was filled with peace and my nerves went away. A strong heartbeat always does a Mommy's heart good. :)
She measured everything and said the baby looked great and it was moving and bouncing around like crazy the whole time. SO PRECIOUS. Then she said, "do you want to know what it is?"
I said, "DO YOU KNOW?"
She said, "I looked ... and I can give you a guess."
I said, "YES!"
She said, "It looks like a BOY!"
I squealed and KNEW that I had seen something on the screen!!! She told me not to go painting any rooms yet or anything, and that she will check again next time, but that it really looks like a boy. From what I saw, too, it definitely looks like a precious little baby boy!!
Oh. My. GOODNESS!!!
You guys don't even know the joy that is flooding my heart! As I looked over at little Levi eating his Tic-Tacs quietly in his chair, my mind was bombarded with plans of the future of Levi with a baby brother. I just KNOW they will be best friends and I feel like there is no greater gift that we could give Levi and this new baby boy, than the gift of each other. Praise GOD!
I am blessed to tears for this precious life that the Lord has so graciously entrusted me with. Thank you, Jesus, for this BLESSING!!! We are in for the most amazing journey with these two little boys in our lives, and I just can't express how grateful I am.
Bring on the blue!!! YIPPEE!!!
