“Looks like May 11th” she said, as she rotated her monitor so that we could see.
And there on the screen were those little nubbin arms and legs, already formed. Already being knit together for the last several weeks, unbeknownst to me.
“You are just over 7 weeks.”
There was a flutter right in the middle of those nubins, moving quick and strong. A heart near my heart.
As the technician zoomed out, there was a moment when it clearly looked like there was a precious, adorable little gummy-bear on the screen.
So that’s what we call him/her.
(I’m 9 weeks today.)
