Our First Appointment

Today, we had our first doctor's appointment with our new doc, Dr. Pohl. One of my family friends referred me to him. She has used Dr. Pohl for both her pregnancies and had only great things to say about him...so I felt very confident with using him for my pregnancy. One thing that I really loved about his practice is that he is the only doctor, so it was very one on one. He answered all the questions we had, but I definitely need to write down questions as I think of them. Once we started the ultrasound, I immediately started to tear up. HOW AMAZING! The doctor went through where everything was and pointed out all the main things, like the umbilical cord, the yolk sac, where the arms and legs were, but all I could look at was the beating heart! I don't know how someone doesn't believe in God after seeing something like this. WOW! The other thing I loved was the doctor recorded the whole ultrasound so now we have our first video of the baby. I have already watched it about 10 times. It still blows me away that I have life growing inside me. What a gift! Our next appointment is on May 6th!
The large circle to the right is the baby's head. Then the two smaller circles to the left of the head are the arms and then the abdomen and then the feet. The baby measured 27.1 mm, which was 9 weeks 4 days (right on track) and the heart beat was in the 160s. Perfect!

Rebecca, you are so right....after seeing that little light blink on the screen....hear that small, unimaginable heartbeat that is so fast.....How could anyone doubt a Risen Savior? He still makes miracles all the time! And the precious one growing inside of you right not is just another example of one! :)
