It was Dr. A, the one who has been super rough the only two times I've seen him. I had prayed all night that he would be patient, not in a rush, sensitive to our excitement and nerves, and that he would be in a great mood to help us enjoy the very special moment... And what do you know? God is awesome!!! Dr. A was all of those things plus more! :) He asked me how I was and I told him "Super anxious and excited...I've been so extremely nauseous all morning." He said that he was excited too and was glad to hear that I was nauseous, because its a good sign (lol). So, we got started and I had my phone ready, to record "the moment". As soon as we started, I knew what I was looking at. Two dark spots...TWO... He asked me "Okay, so, what do you see?" And I just replied "I see two?" He confirmed that I was correct and I just cried and said "Thank you Jesus!". I was so calm and happy...so extremely grateful for getting to have that very moment. I couldn't see Chris's reaction or expression because he was sitting next to the doctor (doc was between us, standing at machine). I really wish I could have seen his expression... I'll never know what that moment looked like. And he's not one that will really express it in words.
Sharing the news with KJ:
Remember how I mentioned, a few posts back, that KJ didn't want to know if we were pregnant until after the first sonogram? Well, we've been doing our best to keep the pregnancy hush-hush around KJ. We have been anxiously waiting for our first sonogram, praying we'd see little bitty ones growing, so we could finally share the news with KJ.
We finally made it!
We rushed to Babies R Us, hoping to find a "big sister" card or frame. (Yes, we should have already had something, but I just wasn't ready to buy anything like that until I knew for sure there was something really growing in there -lol.). We didn't find anything. We rushed to HEB. We had to "rush" because we were planning on dropping by to surprise my parents at their house, before Chris had to head back to work. Chris ran in and was able to find a card.
When we got to my parents' house, we gave KJ her card. We asked her to read it out loud...
I finally don't have to be hush hush, in my own home, about this exciting part of our lives —but it takes some getting used to. I've been quiet for three weeks so it actually still feels like I'm not supposed to be saying anything out loud. haha I will admit, things FINALLY feel real now... I'm actually pregnant... this is real!
Eeeeeeeeeeeeehee hee!!! Praise God! Thank you Jesus!
