My lima bean is beautiful. Our appointment went very well today, without a hitch, praise the Lord!! I am so grateful and so relieved after my appointment today! Just to see the little bean in there, and to see that fluttering heartbeat-Thank you, Father!!! Today it sank in- there is actually a baby inside me. I saw it with my own two eyes today. We also were able to hear the bean's heartbeat, which was incredible. I don't have words, I just don't have words to describe how I feel right now. We love our bean so much already. Both DH and I got teary (I was a little more weepy than him :)). I am just so grateful and so happy today. We had a good visit with the Fetal Medicine doctor, who was great. He spent so much time talking to us about why my doc would be a bit concerned due to my heart condition, and was also very positive. Thankfully, I haven't historically been very symptomatic of my heart condition throughout my life, which the doctor is taking as a good sign. Also, my pregnancy has been going well so far in terms of my level of energy and not being out of breath too much. So, here's to more hope and many, many, many more prayers as we continue on this journey to parenthood! My next appointment is with my normal doc on Jan. 19. It's just a routine appointment (actually my first with her since I found out I was pregnant.) I believe there will be all sorts of peeing in a cup, maybe a blood test, etc. Thanks for all of the prayers. Please know how much we appreciate them, and how much they are still needed.
Thank you, Father!!!
