October 23rd Appointment
Let me begin by saying that today was one of our
best appointments yet.
Our nurse could not believe that we are 9 weeks pregnant with only one more appointment until graduation. Once the ultrasound started, we immediately saw how much the baby's grown over the last week. The head and limbs are much easier to see on the screen now.
After about two minutes had passed, we saw The Sneak move! Brandon jumped and pointed at the screen asking if we just saw the baby move. I was so excited that I had to hold my breath so the screen wouldn't jump. Tammy let us watch Baby Sneakers move around for a minute, and we were shocked with amazement. At that point, I could feel the tears rolling down my face. It was the most amazing feeling. Tammy then told us that our risk of miscarriage dropped to 5% because of the baby's movement. PTL!
After we had watched the baby moving around, Tammy said that they had just received permission to start using the doppler feature on the ultrasound. They typically don't use it, but I'm so glad they started. She was excited to let us hear our precious baby's heartbeat for the first time. The Sneak's heart was beating strong at 178bpm.
Sweet Tammy sent us home with four beautiful pictures of our precious baby.
The Sneak has grown so much!
Our appointment today could not have been any better. God is so good, and Brandon and I are amazed at His blessings.
