Baby’s First Picture

Baby Gambrell

Jaime had her first official pregnancy doctor’s appointment this morning at 8:30 a.m. at Brookwood Hospital here in Birmingham. We found out that she is 7 weeks pregnant and that our due date is January 15, 2009. Dr. Adcock, who also performed Jaime’s surgery a few months ago, gave her an ultrasound and we got to see our child for the first time. We could even see it’s little heart beating! Dr. Adcock said that the baby was about the width of an index finger. TINY!!! It was pretty cool.

The ultrasound thing was kind of weird for me. First of all, Jaime’s doctor looks just like Tom Cruise but with a better build and more charming. No wonder she makes so many appointments. Then, to have him prodding around down there…I felt violated myself! I guess that’s all part of it, haha.

I think the reality of the whole thing finally sank in. We made the decision to start sharing our news with friends. I unlocked a post entitled, “3 Words…” that I wrote the day that we found out that we were pregnant. We are so excited! I pray that God will continue to give Jaime and the baby health during this miraculous process.
