Wow, well... things are amazing. I've had no bleeding or spotting in over a month and my belly is starting to look like a pregnant belly. I feel pretty fantastic.
Even with feeling fantastic, I still have that worry in the back of my mind, "will my water break today?" Especailly the last few weeks. Obviously it's understandable... my water broke at 18 weeks in the first pregnancy... so, nothing irrational really.
Every Wednesday for the past 4 weeks I've had a Perinatal appointment to watch my cervix closely. The Dr's say everything looks great. This past week we were scheduled to take measurements on the baby as well. This was an appointment I had been really anxious for. In my first pregnancy, my water broke before we were able to discover the sex of the baby. I felt robbed... so, this time, the anticipation had been really high.
First, I will tell you that I've felt very strongly that this baby is a girl. I even call the baby her and she when I talk about her. I've been doing it for a while now. So, the appointment on Wednesday was a lot of fun. Steve went with me... so it was the first time he got to see the baby in real time. The ultrasound technician measured everything on the baby; leg bones, arm bones, darks spots in the brain, eye sockets, heart chambers, lungs, kidneys... everything. Discovering the baby's sex was a little difficult. The baby's legs were in a kneeling position, hiding vital parts. The technician was pushing all over my belly trying to get the baby to move. Finally, there was a small glimpse... "see those little white lines, you have a girl". I'm thinking, I don't see it, but ok. So, we are having a girl!
It's a GIRL, It's a GIRL, It's a GIRL!!!
