How do I put this?

I witnessed a beautiful miracle today! My appointment went extremely well, and I went through every emotion in the book. We got to see our little baby today and hear the heartbeat. It was amazing! I couldn't stop giggling and the ultra sound technician had to ask me to hold in my laughter so that she could zone in on the heart beat. Our little guy/gal was just too stinkin' cute!!!!  and BIG ( 1.1 inches instead of .9 inch)! So, they moved my due date to December 16th for now.

I don't understand how anyone could not believe that there is a God. It was such a special and spiritual experience. It becomes more real once you hear the heart beat and see the ultrasound, and I just keep saying quick prayers of gratitude in my heart for being able to go through this! I couldn't help but cry of course, and I can't wait to see my little guy(?) again! I walked out of that place on top of the world!

When we got to the BYU Health Center to get my lab work done, I was still smiling and admiring our cute little picture of the ultra-sound and told Mark, "You need to get my picture! This is the FIRST TIME that I have EVER SMILED while walking into the dreaded lab!" I'm proud to announce that I did not bawl my head off and I actually laughed through the whole thing because of how ridiculous I am. It doesn't even hurt, so why did I ever panic before?? It's all mental people--all mental. Plus, I had Mark there laughing at me and the phlebotomist was absolutely insane and told me about how she had once gotten run over by a car..... she was crazy! It was a really funny experience and I would do it again tomorrow if I had to! I knew that having a baby would make me stronger!!!!!

I'm already such a proud mama! I've shown the picture to everyone I've seen since the appointment, plus texted it to who knows how many people. All I want is a big, healthy, chunker baby. I mean CHUNK. And let me tell you ladies (since most of you are..), my husband was born in Plano, Texas weighing in at ....11 pounds, 1 ounce.
You see that, right? I mean, I am not as tall as his mama, so I shouldn't get a baby that big. But this is just fair warning for all of you if you see me out somewhere and it looks like I'm carrying multiples :)

Something cute: When Mark got home from work tonight, he was so cute! He came up to me and sweetly said, "Want to know something? I was actually a little disappointed...not disappointed, but bummed, that there was just one. I wanted to have more than one!" He went on to say that he's SO excited to be a daddy and can't wait for more. I frequenly tell him, "Well honey, make a lot of money and I'll keep havin' them!"

More fun to come! And I'll try to put up the picture. Stay tuned! :)
