First time seeing our baby...

Since we are doing this pregnancy with a midwife, January 19th was the first time we saw our baby! We were really back and forth on if we wanted to know the gender.. but we decided for the first one .. we just couldn't contain our excitement and we HAD to know!
I swear the whole week before we went.. just dragged and dragged.
 
In the waiting room to get the ultrasound!

But finally the 19th came and off we went to the imaging center.
When our baby came up on the screen, I think my heart probably stopped for a minute. That moment is so unreal. The tech took a ton of pictures of all the different body parts. She counted the little fingers.. and there were 5.. woo! 
(side note: Lee was actually born with 6 fingers on each hand, well, its more like a little nub coming off each of his pinkies... but we were happy to know the baby didn't get his dad's weird finger thing.. haha!) 
One thing I thought was adorable, the baby's little mouth was making such an adorable sucking motion. Hehe. 

Here's a picture of our baby!!! If you look where the chest is, you'll see a darker part.. thats the baby's heart! Awww

When she handed me the pictures that she had taken during our sonogram, I felt like she handed me a pot of gold. I will treasure these pictures forever. It's so amazing to get those first pictures of your baby! 

OH! Anddddd I guess I should tell you what were having! ;) 

It's a..................
