The purpose of our blog is to share our journey through life with family and friends while we leave our mark on this world. Our 20's have been very kind to us and as we enter the 30's we are hoping to continue to enjoy our time in this thing we call life. I should have called this blog "Traveling through Life".

19 weeks

July 12th.
We had our ultrasound right at 19 weeks. This was our first peek inside and we were both in awe the entire time. I couldn’t believe there was a baby in there. Everything looked great and the baby has developed perfectly. The tech said he was measuring at 19 weeks 5 days and 11 ounces, right on track. His heart rate was 144. The baby kept stretching and had its hands up by its face the entire time. It was really cute to see.

They say every woman falls in love with their baby at different times. Sometimes it happens right when they hear the heartbeat for the first time and sometimes it doesn’t happen until weeks after they are born . For me it was the day I saw his little face at the ultrasound.
 
I can officially say I have felt movement! I have felt flutters and little waves the past couple of weeks but I wasn’t sure if that was the baby. At the ultrasound the baby kept stretching and the tech said that is probably why I have been feeling waves. At 19 weeks and 3 days I was kicked! It’s the oddest and most amazing feeling. I stop everything I am doing and focus on how many more times I feel it.
