There is nothing like seeing the flutters of your baby’s heart for the first time. It is miraculous and overwhelming, and brings me to tears every single time. On Monday morning I was so afraid all we’d see on our ultrasound was stillness, and instead we saw life bursting forth; Our little one’s heart flickering at 121 beats per minute.
I keep thinking, “How is this even possible?” I can’t believe IVF worked for us, when so many other things failed. I can’t believe that after 2.5 years we are finally pregnant with Aria’s brother or sister. Today’s miracle is such overwhelming proof that even at the times when I couldn’t see God’s goodness, He was indeed working. We are here now, because He was with us then.
