The heart of Journey Baby!

There are moments in my life that I have cherished, that I have felt unreservedly joyful and I am so thankful that today was one of those days. The scan went well, we saw and heard JourneyBaby's heart beating 140 BPM and he / she measured 7 weeks and 1 day which is perfect because I am 7 weeks today.
I was totally blown away by the whole experience. When we heard the heartbeat and saw it beating madly - JourneyMan and I looked at each other and both had tears in our eyes. When the sonographer left, we hugged and kissed - it was a beautiful moment - I will treasure it in my heart. I have not been able to wipe the smile off my face all day, I have looked at the picture at least a hundred times already.
It was a day that reminded me of when JourneyMan proposed. He had organised a picnic for us at my favourite gardens in Melbourne (the Fitzroy Gardens) and after we had lunch (he calls what he made salad rolls, I say that beetroot does not a salad make but I digress) - I was lying in the sun dozing and he pulled me to my feet, got down on one knee and he proposed. I was so happy, it is a memory I cherish.
I am so lucky. I am so grateful for meeting an marrying such a wonderful man. I am so grateful for seeing the heart beat of our JourneyBaby. I am grateful for the wonderful support and friendship of all the people that I have in my life - including all of you who have supported me on this blog - thank you from the bottom of my very full heart.

  2. That first sono is the BEST! I have been so excited for you. Isn't it the most incredible thing ever?! The surreal thing is to realize that is all going on in your tummy. You can't see it, hear it, or feel it yet, but its there, growing and thriving.

    *HUGE hugs!*
