Well, we went to the doctor today, to check on Poppy. We will be 4 months by Monday! I think part of us wonders where the time has gone, and are freaked out by having a child in 5 months, but I think the other part is wondering if this baby will every get here!
The baby is doing well, heart is beating nice and strong, and I am feeling good, so I guess these are all good signs.
I had to buy my first pair of maternity pants...I was at the doctor, and when the ob checked me out, she noticed the large indent in my skin from my jeans button..."Um...have you considered maternity pants?" She asked. Crap, I thought. But I caved, and bought a pair--and they feel really good actually. I am quite pleased.
In a month we could potentially find out the sex of the baby. Bryce has been wanting to find out, while I have definitely been wanting to wait. I am really liking the idea of a "surprise", and I kind of have these dreams of delivering the baby and Bryce saying, "It's a girl!" (or boy--I really have no preference either way) So, I think we will be waiting, however, I/we are willing to hear your arguments on the matter if you have a preference to finding out vs. not finding out.
I know everyone wants to see a belly picture, so I'll make sure to take one of those in the next couple days too.
Oh, and I am pretty sure I felt the baby for the first time the other day. It was very quick, and very subtle, yet noticable. It kind of felt like the nervous butterflies, but just one big butterfly-fluttering across my stomach very quickly. Any hoot--if I did feel it, it was pretty cool, but I'm anxious for it to happen again!
Well, that's the update on Poppy--make sure you talk to her/him when you see me next--I want her/him to know all of my wonderful friends and family right away! :)
