I guess this could be considered the beginning of our new birth story. Last week Amy and I went to our HMO, Kaiser Permanente to get her first checkup and ultrasound at 13 weeks. Just like when we first saw Courtney in the ultrasound, we saw the little heart beating and we both got all teary eyed. This time we actually saw the cord pulsating.
This little life living and growing inside my wife is such an amazingly profound miracle. I have always believed that the ability to carry a child and give birth makes women superhuman. Because of just this ability alone, I think women should be running the world instead of men. If women ran the world, it would be a far better place and there would never be any wars. Think about it.
