Feeling a Bit...

Overwhelmed..that is!  Trying to take all of this one step at a time. When we got engaged..I pretty much knew exactly what to do to proceed. But this is a completely new ball game!  We are still in the early stages of planning and preparing yet when it comes to thinking about what we need to get a for our Little Darling it all becomes a blurr...! The Bump has been a great place for info so far...and I'm slowly coming across other new Mommy's to be blogs.

At 6 1/2 weeks, My mother and I headed to our OB while I was back East...they did an internal ultrasound and we were able to hear the heartbeat and actually see our Little Darling! I couldn't believe it...we created life. I will admit..I was relieved when the Doctor announced only one heartbeat! :-) Take a look...sooo tiny! I believe our Little Darling is 7mm long when this picture was taken. It was definitely an emotional day for me and my Mother was just loving every moment of it! I'm so grateful she was there supporting me and being apart of that special moment.

Jump ahead, we are just a couple days shy of 12 weeks! Then we move onto the 2nd Trimester already! I'm really looking forward to the next stage!  Tomorrow we meet our new OB out here on the west coast. Mr. Southbay hasn't been able to hear the heartbeat yet..and I'm so praying she allows for this to happen. Oh I'm excited for tomorrow :)


  1. Aw so sweet! I wanna see a pic of you, and hope you'll track the progress as you grow! :)

  2. Congratulations! So wonderful!

    I just had a baby back in June, so I know how overwhelming this can be, but it's the best experience in the world! :)
