I have so much to write about but have a hard time settling my thoughts enough to get it all out. But at some point I will get it all out.
For now, here is that precious baby. The heart rate was 167. He/she is just chillaxing.
Looks like they are laying in a hammock.
This one is kind of blurry, but he/she is laying face down and you can kind of see the spine. We are sure hoping they get Marc's spine and not mine ;). Scoliosis is hereditary, so we are praying against that.
And the bump is here in all of its glory. I haven't quite been ready to embrace this mainly because I feel/look like a chunk instead of a preggo person. I feel like it popped out super early, but that may also have something to do w/ my back, height and wanting to see a baby bump for forever. Who knows, its here and I'm looking forward to it growing and embracing it.
And the baby got an Easter basket from Nana Jan... the out-of-controlness has already begun.
We don't go back to the regular OB for 3 more weeks, which I'm sure will feel like forever. I doubt we will get to find out the gender then, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed! Maybe we can get an early peek!
In other news, yesterday I got released from the fertility doctor. WHAATT, I'm now just a regular OB patient? That does not seem possible, so I sent like 3 emails double checking. I just feel like we've had this ongoing relationship that I was not prepared to say bye to. I feel so close to the nurse practitioner b/c I would bother her with emails almost daily. She laughed and said everything was good to go and to send a pic when the baby got here. So I'm officially done with progesterone and estrogen patches! Apparently my placenta does the job from here. Praising Him for this journey so far.
