A couple weeks ago, my husband and I got the best news possible: we were expecting an addition to our family!
Our second ultrasound yielded the following super duper cute pictures. These are our baby's first pictures as a recognizable human being. I started laughing and crying during the ultrasound when I saw our baby bouncing around.
Tip for future moms, don't laugh while the doctor is trying to hear the baby's heartbeat during the ultrasound. It almost blew out the speakers.
I'm a little further along in my pregnancy than these pictures show because the exam was done a couple of weeks ago. I just got them online this afternoon. I can't wait until our next ultrasound to see how much bigger our baby has gotten and to find out if we're having a girl or boy.
First Trimester Shenanigans
My appetite changed too. Since getting pregnant, I haven't wanted to eat beef or rice at all. My poor husband hasn't had a meal with rice or beef in a couple of months. I gave up coffee and I miss it so much. Whenever we pass by a Starbucks shop, or see someone drinking from a Starbucks cup, I get this feeling that I'm looking at a long lost boyfriend.
However, these small discomforts are so worth it. I can't wait to meet our little baby in a few months. I was telling my husband that I hoped our doctor has the new 3D ultrasound machine. But I don't think I'll be heartbroken if she doesn't. As long as the baby is healthy is all that matters to me.
How about the rest of you mothers and mothers-to-be? How did you feel when you saw your baby on the ultrasound screen?
