The Sweetest Heartbeat

Justin and I are officially announcing our pregnancy online. We got to hear a strong heartbeat with the Doppler and got to see the coolest moving images of our baby kicking and jumping around. It is so relieving too know that our baby is alive and well. Although I can't feel our baby kicking around, I know that there is life happening in secret.

I think about how this baby lives in it's own world that is hidden from all, but God. The Lord creates many incredible things on this earth that man has never and will never lay eyes on. This shows how He saves some things for his own enjoyment. I can see the Lord peeking in on our baby and smiling as those little legs test kicking and stretching for the first time. He can see the baby curl it's hands and fingers up to it's face to touch it. He can look at the baby's little round, pudgy belly and see how precious it is. Justin and I only got to take a peek into this secret life. We can't wait to see more, but we are satisfied to know the baby is strong and healthy. We can patiently wait and let God have his personal time enjoying our little baby.

This is the best profile view we got. Just imagine those legs kicking up a storm.


I believe this is a view of the top of the baby's head with the legs folded in front.


So, I am currently 12 weeks and the baby should be about 2 inches tall. I am due at the very beginning of August. My nausea is mild and mainly consists of food pickiness and aversions. I am feeling pretty good overall.
