Today Jack and I heard the most amazing sound in the world. It was the sound of our baby's heartbeat! It was flickering so fast on the screen and it was loud and steady! I couldn't believe my eyes or my ears! Jack and I are just so blessed! We seriously can't wait to be parents. I took home the ultrasound photos and immediately showed Tank. I know he is such a proud big brother :)
In other baby news, it looks like we jumped the gun a little on how far along I am. It looks like I am only 7 weeks (a week less than we had originally thought). So the bean is scheduled to arrive around October 17th. My doc said today that they wouldn't change the due date any more, no matter how big or small he/she is measuring. She said the ultrasounds at the beginning are the most accurate for dates. Obviously, the baby can come before or after the 17th, but just as an official due date they said Oct. 17th!!! I can't wait for that day!
Here are a few pics I snapped today! Literally a breathtaking moment -
