Did you cry? — The Bump
1st Trimester

Did you cry?

Just got back from my first u/s. Seeing my baby made it so real! He or she was lookin at us from the side, looked like a teddy bear. Then s/he turned and looked up, then started kicking and waving. When it turned back to its side we could see and hear its heartbeat.

I got all tearyeyed and choked up. Anyone else??

Re: Did you cry?

  • Me and DH both cried the first time we saw and heard the heartbeat.

  • No ultrasound yet, but we heard the baby's heartbeat (doppler) today, and we both teared up a little.

  • I was crying so much the U/S tech asked me if they were happy tears lol... I still get happy tearyeyed when I think back to that appointment.. I have my NT scan on Monday and am so excited to see the baby (I just hope we can hear the heartbeat too... if not I have a follow up with my OB on the 14th so I will get to hear the heart then) 
  • I cried and so did DH.  Though he said it was more my reaction and seeing me so emotional that got him, but I saw him staring at that screen :)  We also laughed together as baby did flips and decided to stay upside down.

  • When we first heard the heartbeat I definitely teared up, my husband not so much until our new doctor got him to find the heartbeat with the doppler. I think that made him connect more.
  • I always get choked up the first time I hear the heart beat and the first U/S.  Life is so amazing... it is such a miracle!  And its so awesome to be the one carrying the miracle!  Guys don't know what they are missing!

  • I didn't cry this time. I guess it was because I was just so relieved that everything was alright. I had an u/s today due to some spotting.

  • I thought I would, but I didn't. Neither did the hubs. I think we were still in shock.

    Oh no!!  Didn't get emotional at all, either one of us.  What the heck is wrong with us???  Was interested to see fingers, toes, and all that jazz- but didn't feel overcome with emotion-either happy or sad.  I hope I'll be a good mom : (

     I think your reaction is beautiful!!
