We Have a Heartbeat!

We had an amazing ultrasound today!

They spotted our little one right away and he/she was waving at us!

You could see their umbilical cord and boy, this baby was active--just like their big sister.

The heartbeat was a strong 168 and my doctor (who is the same one who delivered Isabella 15 months ago) said that the baby is perfect.

Thank you for your kind words, thoughts and prayers. You all really helped me through today.

I just had my first ultrasound yesterday, too - we also got a wave, but he was sitting pretty far back so we didn't get to see much detail. :)
