Baby #3!  We are happily expecting another baby on March 11th, 2014.  Today, I got to see our little tiny one for the first time.  I was so nervous going into the ultrasound.  I have always been nervous for the first doctor visit.  There's a gap between taking the test (elation!) then the doctor confirming the pregnancy and actually seeing that little wisp of a heartbeat.  In those four weeks, I worry.  I worry that something is wrong.  Then I pray and hope that God will take the worry away.  Today, He did.

I held my breath as the doctor tried to find the baby's image.  Suddenly, I saw the baby.  I saw a little tiny blurb snuggled up against my left side with a teeny tiny fluttering heart.  I felt tears welling up as the absolute miracle of it finally sunk in.  I was looking at this person who is only the size of a kidney bean and thinking that in a few short months, I will be able to see eyes and hands and toes and a little nose and rosy cheeks.  I will see a complete and perfect child.  This child will be different than anyone else in the entire world.  He or she will do wonderful things, stupid things, things that make a difference and things that will make my heart feel so full of love it might burst. I am looking forward to every moment of it.  I can't wait to know who he or she is.  I can't wait to love her for all he or she is.

I will be sure to share the trials and joys of this pregnancy with you all along the ride.   What things did you love/hate about being pregnant?  If you're a dad, what was the best/worst part for you?
