The Waiting Game


If your checking this today to find out what we're having...you'll have to wait another month. Sorry! As you may know, my doctor had been on maternity leave and we had a misunderstanding on when this oh-so-special sonogram was going to take place. I'll be 21 weeks when we find out. I know my mom is really disappointed, but we're relieved in a way. I was concerned that it might be too early (even though it has been possible to tell for about 2 weeks now) and we would either not be able to tell or be given incorrect information. I can't imagine having clothes and a nursery all ready for one sex and then bringing home a baby of the other sex! So we'll wait.

Even though I am not gaining any weight, the baby is growing and seems to be doing well. When we listened to the heartbeat today, we were able to hear the thuds of movement. That was cool. I feel flutterings sometimes, but I don't know if these flutterings are stomach grumblings are the actual baby. I'm looking forward to that first strong kick. I'm sure I will want the little guy/gal to take a rest when I try to sleep, but it will be exciting to feel the rascal.

I've kept it no secret that I am struggling with vomiting and nausea. I am sorry if you're tired of reading about it, but the good news is that I'm on different nausea medicine and may not feel bad anymore! I may sleep all day because of the medication, but hey, that's what summer vacation is for!

Don't you dare call my grandchild a "rascal"!!

Seriously, I'm so glad you got some help with your nausea. I felt very helpless watching you suffer the past few weeks. Hardly anything compares with how bad you feel when you're nauseated. Hang in there. We're all rooting for you!

I was wandering why I hadn't heard what you were having. It is so frustrating waiting for that exciting doc. visit. It has to be the favorite, but as long as all is well you are very blessed. I must say I can't wait though. Love you girl and look forward to lunch or dinner next week.

This is a pretty cool time, even though you are sick a lot. Jennifer and I check out your blog from time to time to find out what is going on. We are happy for your upcoming adventure (which has already started in many ways)! Take care and enjoy the ride. We'll have to schedule a play date for our kids sometime.
