I will never forget the feeling I got when I saw her face for the first time. Our ultrasound technician had just got done doing the full anatomical body scan and had switched over to the 3D view camera to see if she could get us a photo of her. At first I didn’t see anything (as she was currently flipped the opposite direction), but then I saw a swift motion on the screen (her flipping back) and bam, there she was.
Seeing her face, and her sucking her wrist on the 3D video recording was something I will never forget. I instantly had butterflies in my stomach, my eyes filled up with the happiest tears ever, and I felt, for the first time, the motherly connection I had been waiting for. I just couldn’t believe that little baby on the screen was our daughter. I told Russell when we left the doctor’s office that I have never felt a feeling of love like that before. It was such a strong and indescribable connection.
I can’t tell you how many times I have looked at her photo since that doctor’s appointment. I just smile every single time I look at her face, especially that cute little nose. There is just so much love for this tiny human and she hasn’t even entered this world yet. We obviously can’t wait to meet you, our baby girl Sweet.
