We walk into the waiting room of the OBGYN. I can hear my heart beat in my ears, I'm so nervous.
What if something bad happens? We wait and wait. Harry can tell I'm nervous, he squeeze's my hand for me to know it's okay. I shoot him a faint smile.
"Ms.Payne?" A young lady calls
I look at her and Harry and I stand up. She takes us back to a dark room.
"Ok ma'am sit here" She says pointing to the table where I'm supposed to lay. I smile at her and sit down on the dull beige table. It's cold and sends shivers down my spine but I get used to it after the first 30 seconds.
The doctor walks into the room and introduces herself
"Hello Ms.Payne, I'm Dr.Morris. Nice to meet you" She says with a friendly grin.
"Hi" I say weakly. I hate the doctors, it's one of my biggest fears.
"Okay, first we are going to do an ultrasound to see how far along you are and to see the heartbeat" She says
I lay down.
She lifts up my shirt to reveal my growing belly. I notice Harry sitting in the chair biting his nails.
"Oh you have a lovely tattoo" Dr.Morris says
"Thank you" I say feeling somewhat comfortable
She places a cold jelly on my stomach and the ultrasound thingy on it. Dr.Morris looks around for almost 10 minutes, shifting the monitor.
"So, is it healthy?" Harry ask
"Uh, I'll be right back. I need a second opinion on something" She excuses herself
I look over to Harry who has a worried look on his face
"Babe.." I say
"Mhm" He says not really paying much attention.
"What if the baby's not alive" I say starting to feel the tears
He stands up and walks over to me. His large hand engulfs mine. We intertwine our fingers, he rubs the back of my hand with his thumb.
"Then we'll work threw it" He says and kisses my nose
Just then the doctor walked back in.
"Okay, uh this is Dr.Hilliard" She says and introduces a older man
Harry and I both wave at him. He starts looking at my stomach with the ultrasound device again.
He mumbles something to Dr.Morris and she perks up instantly.
"Okay would you like to hear your baby's heartbeat?" She ask with a smile
I feel so much better now.
"Yes!" Harry says with excitement
We hear our child's heartbeat. I feel the same butterflies in my stomach that I did the first time I kissed Harry. It's like we were complete. Like we are a family.
"So, How far along am I?" I asked
"5 months, so it's okay to tell people your pregnant. Would you like to know the sex?" Dr.Hilliard ask
I nod. He looks at me, then Harry, then me again.
"Congratulations, your having a baby girl!" Dr.Morris said. I squealed with excitement which made Harry chuckle.
They said we were done with our appointment and we headed home.
