We got up early and found a prime parking spot right in front of the hospital (thanks to my planning ahead on a parking site). Once inside, the dr. asked if we had any questions. We didn't really. We're newbies to this so we really had all the questions in the world but no specific ones at the same time.
We went into the small examination room for the ultrasound. We see the sac, the small white spec...and to our complete surprise, we hear the heartbeat! The look in the The Big Fella's eyes was priceless. I think I saw a tear.
Of course, D wanted to tell everyone right away. Hearing the heartbeat made him proud and he was bursting to tell someone. We made a deal to tell my mom and sister, and his dad and brother and sister.
That night, I created a 5x7 card in photoshop to send as an e-mail to my mother and sister to share the news.
