Last week we kinda just assumed our blessing was for one, so going to the doctor this morning seemed routine. It was finally time to see a heartbeat, which we did. Instantly. A sweet little flutter… a tiny heart just moving as fast as it can. The doctors got a little quiet, maybe mumbled a few things, I don’t know, but it was then the “Slesnick” in me came out. I assumed the worst and immediately asked if something was wrong. Was the heart not beating fast enough? Was it not looking healthy? Everything I feared, of course. But no, the doctor’s timid face turned to a smile and simply said, “No, the heart’s beating just fine, in fact they both are.” That’s when we saw the second, beautiful flutter.
So today I’ve heard MANY “oh-my-Gods” from friends and family, which is kinda funny. It also seems to be the same thing running through my head over and over again. On repeat. So yeah, this is crazy. And yet I can’t wipe the smile off my face.
The support and excitement from all of our friends and family is above and beyond what we had anticipated. We thank you all well in advance.
Needless, to say, today is seven weeks and here are our baby’s very first pictures!
