22.) Seeing a tiny baby dance inside of you.

We just had our NT scan this morning, which is an ultrasound done on a high-resolution machine that looks for soft markers for genetic disabilities such as Down's and other trisomies.  It was awesome!  We got to see the baby flipping and flopping, and moving all it's limbs.  We were able to count 10 fingers and 10 toes, and we could visualize some of the organs (including the brain, stomach, bladder, and heart). 

My eyes started to tear up during the scan, as I have seen many of these pictures before (friends babies, mostly) but I've never looked at one and known "this baby is ours".   Life is amazing!
