Now sonograms are a routine part of a woman's pre-natal care. My son and daughter-in-love are expecting a child in late December. Yesterday her parents, sister and I joined the expectant couple for their first sonogram. This is the second time I've got to see a grandchild before birth, the first was with my youngest grandchild four years ago. It was an amazing experience then and it was amazing yesterday! This physician has a sonogram room. There was no shortage of seating area in the room, the technician said it's quite common to have many family members observe this. The technician had a screen at the sonogram machine but there was also a big screen on the wall. We were all able to watch as she went through the procedure. The baby was touching its face, moving all over the place (the technician said it was quite the dancer!) We heard a very strong heartbeat. It was very emotional,
we were all just overcome with how special this experience was, what a miracle we were witnessing.
Truly you have formed my inmost being; you knit me in my mother's womb. Psalms 139-13
It was especially emotional when the technician announced the gender. We are having a boy! It will be our first grandson. My son and daughter-in-love are thrilled as they wanted a boy!
