Guess How Many Babies.

Guess how many babies are in my tummy.

If you guessed FOUR, you are correct.

I kid, I kid.

There are NOT four babies.

I repeat…there are NOT four babies.

I’m a jerk, I know.  I inherited my father’s sense of humor.

There is one little perfect peanut in there, though.  We saw his little heartbeat fluttering away yesterday and it was the most amazing thing I’ve ever seen.

I got so incredibly nervous right before the ultrasound.  My mind was racing with all the possibilities of what we could possible see on that scan.

What if there are no heartbeats?  What if the embryos split and we see three or four little ones?  What if this?  What if that?

We had to wait forever in the waiting room and then even longer in the actual room until the doctor was available.

I tried to convince Trav to just pick up the wand and do the scan himself, but he refused.  He’s so not the adventurous type.  I was about to take matters into my own hands, but then they finally came in and got on with the show.

I really was surprised that there was not more than one, but was in no way, shape, or form disappointed.  How could I possible be disappointed???  I was just so grateful to see at least one healthy little peanut in there.

Here’s our little nugget’s first photograph. {Pardon the quality, I took a pic of the pic with my phone}

    Ok, I think I have teared up at just about all your last several posts. Seeing that little bean with your name above it is just beautiful! ACongrats once again. And I have to say that I agree with Arle -I’m thinking girl.
