133 BPM

So I got a call this morning around 10 asking me if I could be at the doctor for my sonogram by 11...I blurted out the words...YES...after which I remembered that my husband had taken my tahoe to work because his car couldn't make it in the snow...ooops! Anyways...my mom came to the rescue...once again...and made sure that I made it! She's great!

As I laid there on the table I honestly felt like I was going to pass out. For the past two weeks I have been wondering what was going to happen with this pregnancy but there was a certain about of hope in the not knowing the for sure answer...I have been in what feels like a constant state of prayer on behalf of my pregnancy and the well being of my unborn child. This is the moment I had been waiting for....

I laid there squeezing my husbands hand with my eyes closed...he and the tech knew I didn't want to look...right as my husband told me to open my eyes I heart a HEARTBEAT over the speaker...my baby's heartbeat!! At 133 bpm to be exact! I started crying...what an emotional mess I am! I have never been so happy to hear that noise in my life! Just two weeks ago I was told that my pregnancy might not be viable and that I might lose the baby and there I was listening to and watching its little heart beat! God is so amazing! I am so thankful for both of my girls but this baby will forever be my MIRACLE BABY! It still looks sort of "tadpolish"...but it has sweet little arm buds that will soon be waving at me and a bit of a tail...which will soon be turning into wonderful soccer playing legs! I love that little "thing"...we are going to name it tonite...I feel bad calling it an "it"!

So here's the deal...I am seven and a half weeks...due at the beginning of September!

I don't really know of anyone who reads my blog but I know there have to be a few of you out there...as my blog counter goes higher and higher everyday! Well to those of you that I know and to those that I don't....thank you so much for your support and prayers!

I will be sure to keep everyone updated as things progress...probably with more updates than you would like but...you don't have to read them all!!
