Today, we got our first glimpse of our baby to be! It was a short ultrasound which only lasted about 10 minutes, as it was just to “date” the pregnancy (I found out I am 14 weeks, 3 days) right around what we thought actually…
It brought back all of the memories and emotions from when I saw Liam for the first time via ultrasound, and despite the obvious signs and symptoms of the pregnancy such as fatigue, nausea and the “bump”, it made our baby feel that much more real.
It is such an astounding thing really. I don’t know anything about this little person sharing my body, yet I feel such a connection to him or her, and a sense of protectiveness and love. It excites and amazes me that in the near future, this same little being will be calling me “Mama.”
