This Tuesday I go to see the doctor again. I'm far enough along (10 weeks by conception date) that we should be able to hear a strong heartbeat. I'm planning to film it so that G can see it.
I'm so excited and nervous and just still in awe of this whole thing. I love that this baby was a complete surprise. No worries, no waiting for a positive test only to have it be negative, only absolute and beautiful joy. I will someday tell this child about how they were the best surprise their parents ever were given.
So I'm looking forward to hearing the heart that I carry underneath my own. Strong and steady.
