So, my stats have been really high here on the blog, but my comments section has been...
Are y'all still out there?
I have some secret readers, I think that's fun, feel free to read along, I don't mind!!!
After I announced my pregnancy people started telling me "Oh, soon you will find out the gender!"
I got all excited, started receiving e-mails from baby pages I follow telling me, "this is the week the baby's anatomy is in place to find out the gender!"
Oh goodie, I thought. At my next appointment, I'll know what this baby is, won't have to call it "it" anymore, and can finally tell R and dad to start painting furniture!
Then I called the doctor's office to confirm my appointment, I wanted R to come down from his classes to be there. The nurse said, "Sweetie, you aren't scheduled for an ultrasound, just a regular OB visit."
........Hmmmmm, ok then....
I was worried. I hadn't seen/heard the baby in 4 weeks.
One of the doctors from the practice came in, was very kind, said all my numbers were great (especially my hemoglobin, apparently my numbers are off the perfect scale, woop woop).
Then she said, "Shall we measure?!"
I thought to myself, if she pulls out a measuring tape and wraps it around my tummy I'm going to lose it, I want to see my baby!
Instead she pulled out a doppler. She placed it on my stomach and the baby kicked it away.
It was magical. She chased it around for a little while then got a healthy heartbeat.
My baby wants it's own space and won't be pushed around, I LOVE IT!
The heartbeat was 147 and I was sent home to wait another FOUR WEEKS to find out what this "it" is...
I am still so excited, just feeling flutters is what I'm living for now!
