It's a BABY!!!
Good news! I had my ultrasound today and everything looks great! Just one baby, measuring on target, and saw a teensie-tiny heartbeat!
My due date is officially September 18th! Which seems like a long time away, but remember that you will get to see me expand to ridiculously huge proportions until then. Like this.!!
It was so surreal sitting on the butcher-paper with no clothes on and waiting for the doctor while staring at the ultrasound screen. I kept thinking- "Is this happening? Am I here- AGAIN?!"
Ditto on peeing in the cup before the appointment.
After the doctor treated me to a 10 minute lecture of things that I can/can't eat and do (Lady, like I just told you, this is not my first rodeo...OR my second rodeo..and if you say "sushi" one more time, I am going to vomit all over you)
she brought out that nice little ultrasound device
(not the kind that goes on my tummy)
(if you don't know, don't ask, you don't WANT to know)
and there was my adorable little white speck on the screen!
Can I say that it looked like a girl-shaped speck? Wishful thinking?
I can't upload the picture right now- but stay tuned tomorrow when #3 makes his/her blog debut!
Perhaps I should title it "Anticlimactic Little White Speck On a Blurry Photo That Probably Only I Can See"?
You've been warned.
