"The heart is the first feature of working minds." ~Frank Lloyd Wright
There it is. That beautiful rhythmic pulsating image at the bottom of the sonogram. It's our baby's heart beat. I have had regular weekly appointments with our specialist and everytime we go it is even better than the last time. This week was a huge appointment, we got to see the heart actually pumping on the sonogram monitor. There was no mistaking the blinking circle in the middle of our long blob-looking baby. It was Dot's heart. To make it even better they turned on the volume and we heard the beautiful swooshing sound of the heart actually pumping. There is nothing like it in the world. Tim and I locked eyes, and our smiles were ear to ear.
I find this sonogram the most interesting. You can see how much bigger Dot has gotten since the last sonogram which was only a week ago. If you look right in the center of the long "blob" you can see the circle, and that is the heart. A beautiful, pumping heart. It's unreal what the Lord creates in His amazing power. Psalm 139:13 has played over and over again in my head all day. I will leave you with it:
For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb.
