The Most AMAZING Moment

There are a few moments in my life that I would consider incredibly precious and truly unforgettable. They've impacted me in the most important ways. The first was my baptism. The second was my wedding. The third was the moment I realized I was pregnant. But I experienced something at the doctor on Friday that I just can't explain. My heart is incredibly full of love like I've never felt before.

At our doctor's appointment, we knew the dr was going to listen for heartbeats with a doppler. We also knew that with twins, she might not hear both. That was just the case. She heard one but couldn't find the other so we were sent to ultrasound. Of course I didn't mind. I wanted to see our babies again. And that's just what we did. Apparently baby A is kind of blocking baby B so that's why the dr could only hear one. We looked at baby A first. I think she calls the one closest to the cervix baby A (since it's a vaginal ultrasound). I could be wrong but I think that's how she explained it. We listened to the heartbeat and it was just as strong as can be. You could even see the pulsing of it's chest on the monitor. Baby B apparently is going to be our wild child. B seemed to be hiding behind A. This is when it happened. My eyes swelled up with tears and I felt so incredibly happy and blessed. When she singled in on B, it was just bouncing around, moving it's arms all around and kind of kicking. B was so active. We could see one of our babies moving. I think at that moment it felt real. They weren't some little blob or dot on a picture. They look likes babies and were moving like babies. I think at that moment, I felt like a mom because I knew that is a little person that is part me and part James and they're going to be our little bundles of joy that are ours. It was truly the most amazing moment. I absolutely can't wait to hold them in my arms!!!

Oh wow!! That's awesome!! I remember it was completely different seeing the baby the second time, when s/he looked like a baby rather than a jelly bean!! Congrats!! Did you get any new pictures? :)
