meet our "little star"

today was the day for our first ultrasound to confirm the pregnancy and to see how many little ones there might be. jesse was really nervous and convinced we would see two. mommy instincts were for just one. the dr. informed us that we were about two days early to see a heartbeat, but that we would indeed see the gestational sac(s). as we started the US, we saw one very evident sac. the dr confirmed that there was indeed ONE very HEALTHY sac. they nurse kept looking around the US.......and all of the sudden I noticed a small pulse on the screen.... i shouted "hey look" and sure enough there was a beautiful heartbeat. it was almost as if the little one was saying "hey mom, look right here, i may be small, but i am here and going strong." it was amazing...the nurse even had tears. we are so excited. i am not disappointed one bit that we didn't get two. i am a bit grieved for the life that didn't continue, but we are optismic! God is AWESOME. we have another US next wednesday! thanks so much for the continued prayers, thoughts, and emails. you all are wonderful. here is a picture of our "little star."

This is so wonderful. I think that if its a girl, you should name her Star. Ok, maybe not. Maybe her middle name?
