It's always amazing to me how teeny tiny cells can turn into a human life. How a baby can go from being the size of your pinky finger to an 7+ pound bundle of joy.
Having gone through IVF I got to experience life right from the beginning. I'm thankful for this experience because I got to see several weeks of the beginnings of life that I didn't get to see with my other 2 kids. By the time I saw them on an ultrasound they were already about 8-9 weeks along with a tiny little heartbeat.
But this last little one...I got to see right from the beginning. As just a group of cells, growing & dividing.
I always wonder which one was Addie :) Was she #1 that my
dr thought was the 'best' embryo out of the bunch??
Then as just a little sac.
5 weeks 5 days
And then a tiny flicker of a heartbeat.
6 weeks 5 days
The beginnings of arms & legs, hands & feet. A tiny, tiny baby.
10 weeks 5 days
More defined arms, legs, fingers, toes. Movement. A tiny baby growing bigger & bigger.
11 weeks 6 days
20 weeks 6 days
Growing bigger and bigger by the weeks.
29 weeks 2 days
Until the day that you get to hold that precious baby in your arms for the first time.
How can you not say this is a miracle?? It's just amazing to me and I'm so thankful I got to experience it just one more time.
