All week I have had this odd feeling that I am carrying twins. That feeling quickly vanished when I had my first prenatal appointment this morning. There on the screen was one blob/kidney bean/Widget measuring one day ahead! The best part was her little heartbeat of 166 bpm.
My mother-in-law came to the appointment so she got to share in my joy.
This is really starting to feel real!
Notice I call the baby a her. That is because I feel totally different this time. I do have morning sickness, but I am not full on throwing up like I did with Jack. I also have sore girls which I didn't have with Jack. I am not nearly as tired which is pretty remarkable considering I am chasing around a toddler. My bets are on girl, although Jason is convinced it's another boy. Honestly? I don't care. I just want the baby to be healthy. Admittedly, last time, I desperately wanted a boy, but this time, I honestly am not biased. I will take whatever God has planned for me.
