We had our first trimester screening appointment yesterday. It went very well. Everything looked perfectly normal on the baby so far. We breathed a small sigh of relief to see and hear that. It was a very nerve-wracking appointment for both of us. We have never been this nervous for an appointment. Our perspective is completely different, our thoughts/concerns are brand new. It doesn't make the journey an easy one. But it is still miraculous. Seeing our little one bouncing all around, kicking, waving, and sticking his tongue out is a testament to the miracle that has taken place so far. I felt Chase's presence I think. I really wanted to. I imagined him up there on the screen with this little one....like he's taking care of him right now. It rained on our way out of Alb and we saw the brightest, strongest rainbow I have ever seen. When I told Karly about it, she said it was from Chase because he was so happy. I like to think that, too. Seeing this baby makes me really miss him.
Next appointment is in 4 weeks. :)
