another glimpse

Yesterday was our check up ultrasound. I've had a couple issues with this pregnancy so my doctor is keeping a close eye on me. Fortunately because of all my issues it means I get a couple extra looks at our baby. (not going to complain) We went in and my nerves were totally calmed. I knew in my heart that everything was going to be ok. It is the coolest thing being able to lay in a room and watch your baby on a monitor. I held my breath at the first glance. I saw the baby but no heartbeat. I was amazed at the difference in 12 days. Last time we saw Baby Andrews "he" was a blob and you could hardly make out the head. This time it was very easy to see the head, little arms and two little leg buds starting to form. We got a closer look and there was the little heart beating right on track. 163 beats per minute to be exact. Just perfect. We were so relieved. The ultrasound tech asked if we wanted to hear it.."ya!!!" She turned on the sound and it released a flow of tears. It was incredible to hear. I don't even know how to describe it, all I could think of was how hard this baby is working to grow. Everything looks great and we couldn't be more thrilled. It made this "all day sickness" worth it already. Speaking of "morning" sickness, my obsession with waffles seems to be over. I now can't get enough of raisin bagels. I had to make a quick stop at trader joes today to stock up. Terrible, but hey...its the only thing I can eat! Things are good, we couldn't be any happier. Every day the Lord blesses us in a new way. We are overwhelmed with the love, support and sweet gifts from our family and friends already. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. It means more than you know.
So here are the latest pictures of our baby....meet our little gummy bear...
