100 Words - 9

It was the fiercest love I’d ever felt; it happened instantly when I saw that little gummy bear. Months of heartache, pain, and prayers had been realized. After years of infertility and treatments, I was finally pregnant. I’m a worrier, so once I got that positive pregnancy test, I wanted to see a heartbeat and know this baby was viable. Two previous ultrasounds had revealed a growing blob, but no heartbeat. After my request, I was sent for a transvaginal ultrasound. When that gummy bear looking baby appeared on the screen, with its accompanying flashing heartbeat, I knew real love.
