12 Week Ultrasound (Photos attached)

It feels like ages since I have written.

We had our 12 week ultrasound on Monday and it was really transformational. I did not expect to see a baby that looked so “complete” and well formed. They had to move him (or her) to do some measurements, and they pushed on my belly like I was a waterbed mattress. Sure enough, Baby Beluga turned his head and did a little victory dance for the camera. I had never seen him move before, so it really took my breath away. He looked perfect to me.

I can’t begin to tell you the new feelings that are surfacing for me. The need to protect him from harm. The unconditional love. The complete humility that we are blessed with this gift. I remain awestruck by it all.

I have attached a photo. I hope it is not offensive to anyone. It just helps me to reaffirm that it is all “real”.

Love and best wishes,

Shell & The Bear
