OUR DANCING RASPBERRY!!!
We were blown away. Amazed. We got to meet our little Raspberry yesterday. And it was incredible. Before the technician started, I told her quite seriously that I thought if she pressed hard on my stomach with the ultrasound device I may pee on the table. She asked me to hold it a few more minutes. Then she "started"...and as soon as I SAW the Raspberry I completely forgot about how badly I had to go! There on the screen, CLEAR AS DAY...was our baby. I didn't think a fetus the size of lemon would look so much like a baby...but it did. Rob grabbed my hand and was in as much AWE as I was. My eyes started watering instantly. Our little Raspberry was dancing!!! It's too small for me to FEEL the movements, but there he/she was...moving their tiny little arms...legs...whole body! I saw the amazing details of tiny tiny tiny little fingers and toes! Can you imagine the tiniest little fingers moving around? So cute. And the heartbeat...WOW. The tiniest little heart beating away...156 beats a minute...normal. The Raspberry is currently 6.8cm, which is normal for how far along I am. Ha ha ha...we kept asking the technician "is that normal?" for everything...to which she answered "yes" to each question...whew!...she was really nice. They gave us a choice of three pictures, unfortunately none of which shows as much detail as we saw on the screen...but there it is...the first official picture of our Raspberry. I am truely and utterly in love.
