ULTRASOUND


Lindsey and I went to the doctor today for her first appointment. Yes, we finally made it in. You would think it would have happened a long time ago, being that we have known she is pregnant for a month now, but for whatever reasons, (mostly the doctor didn't have an opening until today) we hadn't. Well, we got there and they do all the check-up stuff and then it was time for the ULTRASOUND. Technology blows my mind. The fact that Lindsey has a little baby in her, blows my mind. I am going to be a dad, blows my mind. I just turned 26, blows my mind. Pretty much lately, a lot of stuff has been that crazy blowing mind kind of stuff. The stuff that makes you sit back and think about life and where you and your spouse are going and how you are going to get there and how fortunate you are to be where you are and with all the things we have been blessed with. Heavy stuff. But really neat stuff. Mind blowing stuff. Back to the appointment. Well, the ULTRASOUND ( i put that word in bold cause i think it is a cool word), was INSANE !! BOOM, right away you could see a little baby. It really blew my mind how clear of a picture it was. Everyone, and I mean pretty much everyone, is pregnant in married housing here in Hawaii, and I have seen a lot of ULTRASOUNDS of their babies lately and I thought they looked weird and hard to see. But, (maybe just because it is our baby and I am biased) this ULTRASOUND came out soooo clear and we could see the baby and its little hands and feet and fingers and toes. it was INSANE. So after looking at the baby for a bit, the doctor measured it and Lindsey is 12 weeks along !!!! That is exciting for us because we weren't sure how far along she would be and the further the better. So the tentative date of birth is March 13th, 2010. Tentative being the key word. Doc said we will know more accurately the next visit. I scanned this picture in.
That is a baby inside Lindsey's belly. CRAZY !!

Yeah I am so excited. I am glad that everything is ok and that our kids are only going to be like 2 months apart. Wahoo. Now we just need to live by each other so that they can actually hang out.

So cute, congratulations! I'm tellin' ya, if our babies are of the opposite gender I'm so setting my kid up with your kid. That way my child is guaranteed to have an awesome mother-in-law! Or if they're the same sex they can be roomies someday too!
