Well, I bet that grabbed your attention. There are a few reasons I bring up this topic.
For one, C and I have decided that we will both be finding out the sex of our baby. I felt terrible for speaking up but I couldn't help it. I explained to C that I feel like I need to know for our first baby. Because I want to be able to plan and I want the baby shower to be gender themed etc. I did promise her that when we have our second we will make that baby a surprise. I also explained that no matter what the birth will be special even if we do know the gender of our baby. I feel like I kind of let C down, but I know deep down she will be so happy that we found out.
So, now I am trying to think of cool ways to find out. We don't want to find out on our US, we want the tech to write it down on an envelope and then do something with it. That being said I don't want to do a gender reveal party because I feel like I can't ask for that and a baby shower and I don't want to wait too long before knowing lol. Plus I want people to know before the shower. C mentioned maybe taking the envelope to Lowe's and handing it to the guy in the paint department. We would explain that we wanted a certain color for a girl and a certain color for a boy. And then after it was done we would take it home to the nursery and open it together. I like that idea actually. Any other ideas?
Also, I have compromised with C about not having the expensive Martenit21 test and waiting until our gender reveal US which feels like FOREVER away! About 9 more weeks. I suppose patience is a virtue :)!
Off to another topic of sex.... C and I have been lacking in that department. And it is all because of me, I know this. My poor poor wife. I am just never in the mood anymore. And it feels different (physically that is). C even said my cervix feels lower. I don't know but I need to make more of an effort because I do miss it lol. I never thought sex or rather lack of sex would be an issue during pregnancy. Hopefully my second trimester will magically fix this lol.
ANYWAY, we had our first OB/GYN appointment and I must say I was not at all happy with it. It feels so far from what I expected. The nurse doing the intake seemed annoyed that she was working. She started asking me all of these health questions and I had to stop her and remind her of how we conceived. Most of the genetic questions needed to be directed towards C and they weren't. Frustrating to say the least. Then she says that we will basically have two US's the whole pregnancy. Which shocked the shit out of me because C and I have been getting weekly US's at our RE's office. I guess we are SUPER spoiled. Then we found at that it basically didn't matter who we picked for our OB because it sounds like we will never see him since the practice is so big. UGH we are just going to go with the flow but I am already feeling like we should have went elsewhere. Maybe next pregnancy we can explore home birth and midwives.
Well until next time, baby dust to all!
