Today at my 14 week OB appointment-I was surprised when my doctor offered to see if she could sneak me in for a quick gender ultrasound. I had no idea they could tell the sex this early on in the pregnancy, but I guess they can tell from 13 weeks on.
I already had a feeling that it was a girl so did a lot of people, even preston has been calling it his little sister since we told him he was going to be a big brother. It was so fun to see her, I could see her swallowing and opening her mouth and waving and moving all over the place. It's a fun reminder that 'hey! there actually is someone in there!'
I can't tell you how glad I am to be done with the first trimester! It was pretty horrible. I felt like I had so much going against me. Dave working out of town, playing single mom while feeling sick and tired and then the fact that my first trimester fell in december,january an february-the bleakest of months. The days got so long-but that is all behind me now. I am feeling better, not as tired anymore and spring is just around the corner. I don't think I could have been more excited for march to arrive, even if it is still snowy outside. Mentally I felt like I can put the last 3 months behind me and move on!
This summer will be so memorable with the arrival of 2 new babies!
Benjamin and baby Grace.
(I'm pretty sure, we are going with Grace Taylor, but I have to write it out and say it out loud for a while to test it;)
