Saw It Today

I left work early and met up with my boyfriend and had lunch with him before going to the doctor. We were there for dating purposes. After the initial questionnaires and set up the ultrasound started. We saw the big black hole that is the fetal sac and inside it there was this little white clump of tissues and nerves that didn't look like anything, no bigger than a raspberry, and I still gasped like it was the most beautiful thing I'd ever seen. The doctor said "There's the heartbeat" and we both went "Where." She pointed at it and we could see it flickering, like two little grains of rice. We couldn't tear our eyes away from it, I was amazed by how something so tiny could be so moving. I can hardly believe that little thing is growing inside me. Milo gasped when she put on the sonogram, and we could hear it pattering away. We got all the dating things sorted out- I'm officially 7 weeks 5 days and due on January 2nd. I can't stop looking at the ultrasound picture. I mean, that's living inside me.
