As many of you already know...God answered our prayer, He remembered us and is now blessing us with out heart's desire: our beautiful baby<3 I know many people don't really like to see Nurse Practitioners but if you were to ever meet Dawn, you'll love her. I was kinda hoping she's be there but as long as we got to see our baby it was ok. We were thrilled to see that our little treasured had doubled it's size! It was so funny to hear my hubby say "wow babe your uterus us huge" lol. It had also doubled. The doc took some time exploring, making sure everything looked good. I wouldn't take my eyes off that monitor...I was and am so in love with our baby already, I could look at it all day long on there. Too bad we don't have one of those machines at home:( One of the most incredible feelings....was when we saw the baby's heart beating like a warrior's. It has a strong heart beat..I was God's warrior in my belly! I wanted to cry to see it's little heart! My hubby was so moved...he was able to catch it all on camera. It was a defining moment in our lives....God is real my friends...I can prove it in my womb!!!! Now this was the hard part...we weren't able to hear the baby's heartbeat like we thought we would. That was the main reason of this appt. You see, our doc is alot older and he hasn't been trained on the ultrasound machine enough to hear the heartbeat. We were so bummed...we were willing to wait for Dawn who would have gone out of her way to make it happen but we had to wait til our next appt instead:( At first we were a little upset BUT everything in our lives happens for a reason and immediately we felt a sense of peace in knowing that God is in control and that things haven't changed for us...this whole experience of trying to conceive has taught us about patience and trusting in the Lord....He knows best! We quickly realize that when "bad" things happen they can be blessings in disguise from our Lord! My hubby and I looked at each other and realized that now we have someone special to look forward to on out next doctor's visit Sept 8....hearing our baby's heartbeat. God has given us something to look forward to with great excitement!!!! Here is a picture of our treasure taken that day:
Lord-willing we will meet our beautiful baby April 4, 2010 (or sometime around this date). April 4th seems to be a special date....we are connected with special people in our lives....April 4th is also my cousin's birthday, my good friend Deana's birthday, my good friend Vic's daughter due date (his baby girl was born this past April 5th but the 4th was her due date) and 4 days before my little sister's wedding anniversary! My hubby says that we're gonna have an April fools baby, that it's going to be born on April 1. We'll see.....
To celebrate our first month, we went to Pismo Beach. I really wanted to take a mini trip with my hubby. It was so much fun, we had a picnic right on the beach, the weather was nice, we tried some of the best clam chowder ever from Splash Cafe! There's something amazing about laying on the beach, hearing the crashing waves while,e feeling the cool breeze! We plan on doing something special every time we turn a month. We also plan on finding out the sex of our baby on the day of our 5th wedding anniversary at a very special place! Most people think it's a girl, some a boy and some even twins since we have twins on both sides of the family! I have twins on my maternal and paternal side! Don't forget to vote on the side bar if you haven't:D We thank God for an amazing first month! Here are some pics of out trip to the beach:
And this ONE MONTH belly shot:
THANK YOU ALL from the bottom of my heart for praying for the 3 of us! It means so much to us and God hears your prayers!
I was having alot of nausea (close to no vomiting) but the nausea has almost faded and I'm feeling really good! I continue to serve the Lord as it is my plan, I was asked to decorate for a 50't theme event for the women at our church and it was so much fun! I will post about it later:D I will also be assisting the speaker for a women's conference called "The Husband Project" at our church and was asked to decorate for a Christmas boutique...I love working for the Lord..it brings me joy to know I'm obeying Him! But don't worry....I will still get plenty of rest!
Love, The Reyes<3
