It was amazing. Indescribable. By now I have experienced a lot of ultra sounds, but this one was out of this world. In the best possible way! There on the screen we saw the blinks indicating that a tiny heart is beating away at 156 bpm. It is really happening. Our baby is growing and developing inside me. It’s a miracle, nothing less. The miracle of life.
I’m 8 weeks pregnant today, so we still have a while to go before we reach those 12 weeks. But seeing a heart beat gives us so much more confidence to keep believing and trusting that everything will be fine.
It also means that we are slowly starting to transition out of this liminal state we have been stuck in – as I have written about in previous posts (Tagged with Infertility & Embracing the liminal space). It has felt like life was on pause for a long time. Now it’s moving forward again. With every day, every week that passes we are entering a new stage in life. That of expecting parents. I can’t even express how thankful I am!
