It was so awesome to get to see her heartbeat and her wiggling around. It's surprising that with all that movement Jen can't feel too much going on in there. It's also reassuring to see how much the baby is moving, as Jen gets a bit nervous not feeling anything.
The ultrasound technology really seems to have come a long way. The images were not so blobby. We could clearly see the spine and ribs, as well as the feet and profile. We even could see her skin as a layer in the ultrasound. The tech said everything looks great to her. I'm happy that our child isn't looking quite as alien as other ultrasounds I've seen, too.
What a moment of realization this is! For most of the pregnancy, it has been pretty intellectual. Jen hasn't really been showing until just recently, so this was finally when things are hitting home. Seeing that fluttering little heart made me realize that I'm going to be dad. We're going to have a daughter! Craziness.
We're so excited!
