First Baby Pics!

We had our first official doctor's visit today! We have been soooo excited to hear the heartbeat since the day we scheduled this appointment 5 weeks ago. When the nurse came and got us from the waiting room she told us she was taking us to an ultrasound room! Josh and I both immediately looked at each other and couldn't hide the excitement. As we sat in the room waiting for the doctor we weren't quite sure what was going on, but we were hoping she would do the ultrasound so we could get our first peek at little gizmo. As soon as Dr. Birch came in she said we were going to do an ultrasound and I was thrilled. She turned on the machine, stuck it to my belly and there was our baby! We couldn't tell what was what, but with a little explanation we started to figure it out. As Dr. Birch pushed on my belly, little gizmo responded by waving arms, kicking feet, and turning around and around. It was amazing! We measured at 12 weeks and 1 day which is right on with my due date, and Dr. Birch said everything looked good. After the exam was over we left on cloud nine. It was amazing to see our baby and know that everything is going good. Now, once again, we cannot wait for the next appointment when we get to see our baby again!
