Baby Update

So today I had my first ultrasound with Baby #4. We've determined that, according to measurements and whatnot, I am 12 weeks pregnant and due on June 11th. Oliver and this baby will be 18 months apart--the closest in age any of my children are to date. We're giving the Jolie-Pitt family some good competition I think.

I must admit that I wasn't really all that excited about the ultrasound. I mean, I truly don't know how many I've had by now. I thought that some of the magic would be gone. But it wasn't. Seeing little Buckland #4 today was just as exciting, just as thrilling as seeing Isabel in her first ultrasound. I even got all misty-eyed. I was also expecting to see just a little blob on the screen. But you can already see arms, legs, hands, feet, etc. Everything looked perfect and healthy. I have been in kind of a pregnancy shock/denial up until this point. But today it brought it home for me. Very cool.

Ahh, that takes me back to the day of my first ultrasound with Daniel. I was two months late for my cycle when I finally took a pregnancy test. So I was about twelve weeks along at my very first appointment. I totally cried when I heard his heartbeat for the first time, and I was floored that he was a baby in the ultrasound rather than a little bean. I'm so happy that your appointment went well, and that Buckland #4 is already stealing your heart.
