Our First Ultrasound

On August 19th, we went in for our first ultrasound! This was a day we were anticipating, so much excitement to finally see our little one.

The doctor showed us many different angles of the baby, and we were eager to hear its heartbeat. She said she didn't know if it was possible, but she would try anyway. She messed with it for a little, then finally over the speakers the baby's heartbeat sounded. We were able to see the soundwaves across the screen, 124 beats per minute... a healthy heartbeat! We looked at each other and smiled with tears in our eyes!

This was one of the most exciting days for us! Next doctor's visit is September 2nd, and next ultrasound isn't set for 10 more weeks. However, we hope to schedule another ultrasound within 5-6 more weeks for fun!

The Test!

On Friday, July 29th, we found out we are having a baby! After days of wondering, a pregnancy test came up positive! We then took two more just to make sure, and those said the same.

We made a quick trip to the doctor, and blood test results the next day confirmed! The both of us couldn't be more excited. After 6 years together, and over 2 years of marriage, this gift in our lives is a blessing!
