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.
