Time is running. Time is running away and it is running away from me. Is this happening to you too?
It seems like just a few days ago we broke the news of our pregnancy. Since then so much has happened. Where do I start? What do I say? Heck, I do not know. HELP!
Everything around me is spinning. Everybody is so sweet to us and congratulating us. And time just keeps ticking.
Hilkka and I are very happy. I am certain we will get to another point of happiness when the reality of this all really settles. It was just the other day we had the first scan. Already time has charged off and it is time for the next ultrasound next week. It is moving so fast.
The first one was very exciting but quite nerve-wracking at the same time. This was the first real opportunity we had to see what had been achieved. You must remember that we were very wary of it all going horribly wrong all of a sudden. I guess that is inevitable when you have tried for so long.
Anyways, I digress. The Doc moved about the scanner and fiddled and fiddled and searched and searched and moved and fiddled and really made me feel uncomfortable. And then ….
A heart beat so fast, flashing on the screen! LOOK! Honey, just look at that. Look what we did!
8 millimeters! EIGHT! Really? Eight? I think the child is going to be a wonderful, warm, loving and caring person. All eight millimeters were pure heart.
