We had our BIG sonogram appointment on Wednesday and got to visit our little baby for a good 20 minute show! I was so excited the night before that I didn’t get to sleep until probably 2 am.
I really loved walking into the room knowing we would soon find out if we were having a boy or girl. When the tech put that cold jelly on my stomach and the image popped up on the screen it was like a private movie showing just for Stephen, me, and our baby. It’s been 4 weeks since our last appointment, and the tech had to go from one side of my tummy to the other to get all the different body parts in view. Our little munchkin is growing so fast!
Before starting she asked us if we wanted to know the gender, we both excitedly answered yes! We’d questioned if we wanted to wait, or have the tech write it down and us find out privately or with family, but I really loved being in that dark room, with each other & our baby, finding out the moment the tech saw.
Watching the tech move all around the body and then the big moment where she pointed out “you see that, you’re having a girl!” It was such a special moment. Seeing Stephen smile as big as he did. Laugh-Smiling because I felt so blessed to have this gift that I didn’t know if I should laugh or cry. I’ll never forget how I felt at that moment and the amount of love I instantly felt for our little girl.
I love how it looks like light is shining down on her !
The best part had to be seeing the baby “4-D”, watching her squirm around and arms moving all about. At one point I thought she may be sucking her thumb and Stephen pointed out she was probably just picking her nose, silly man.
I love how it looks like she’s sleeping on a pillow with her hand holding it down. I can already tell I’m going to love watching her sleep.
Our precious girls first footprint
I don’t think I can express just how much I love that tiny little foot and those even tinier toes. I can’t wait to count them!
Our appointment was over a day ago and we are still floating in the clouds. The ultrasound tech took all of Sarahs measurements and she is in great health. She weighs 10 ounces right now, so she’s working her way up to that first pound. Hearing a good report was a huge answer to prayer. I could not be more thankful for this experience and the amount of joy we are feeling. Stay tuned and I’ll be updating you with the story behind the name. Sarah Elizabeth Ringl, we love you sweet child.
