The Heartbeat

So up until this point being pregnant hasn't felt real. I mean I have talked to the baby, I have gotten very sick, and I guess I can tell my body is changing...but it still hasn't felt like there was actually a baby inside of me. However, last week my husband and I got to hear our baby's heart beat. It was truly incredible. I know its not the same thing as actually seeing the baby in the ultrasound, but it was pretty amazing. I just felt overwhelmed by the idea that there is a little life inside of me, it has a heart beat and everything. And the best part of it is, the baby is all my mine! I mean in 7 months, I am going to be a mother! Its crazy to think about, but after hearing that heartbeat I can't help but be amazed, honored, and excited. God chose Erik and I to take care of a life. I feel so blessed I cannot believe it! Thank You God for this mind-blowing gift!
