First of all I just have to say the whole experience what simply amazing! SO WORTH EVERY PENNY! It was amazing to see how much the baby has grown in 4 weeks! To see the purposeful movements, kicks and waves.... just sooo awesome. The baby was hiding behind the placenta at first so the tech had me sit up to make the baby uncomfortable and hopefully move over lol. Well, that didn't work but the baby did at least lay more on it's spine to make the gender determination a little easier. SO ARE YOU READY FOR IT?!
I swore up and down that it was a little boy.... but I was wrong! We are having a baby GIRL!!! I could not be more happy. C and I feel so so blessed. Today is C's mother's birthday (whom passed away) I feel like she has a lot to do with where we are today. I kept saying to the US tech..... wait are you sure?! She said she was 98% sure and that if this baby comes up with a penis in the next three weeks she will fall to the ground in shock lol. So I am still in shock but definitely more accepting that this baby is in fact a girl. I guess it didn't help that I did that stupid pee test from Walgreens which said it was a BOY. Stupid.... and $40!! Anyway here are some cute pictures of our little girl:
Also, we had our midwife appointment this past week, and we LOVE her! I am so relieved and happy! Everything went well with the appointment. She does want me to see a high risk perinatologist since I have a preexisting cardiac condition (paroxysmal atrial fibrillation). I haven't had any major flare ups since November 2012 but I am okay to do this just as a precaution. Plus it means I will get to see my baby more frequently on US. My first appointment with the Perinatologist is June 26th. And then we have another US appointment with Bellyssimo June 29th.
Our plan is still to surprise my mom with the gender reveal. I am going to make the inside of her birthday cake PINK and can't wait to see her reaction!
