The Wait Is Over
We had our ultra-sound today. We are both soooo excited. I would post pictures but I am too tired tonight and really don't they all look the same? I promise there is a baby in there and IT'S A GIRL!!!!
We were both so shocked to hear the tech say it was a girl because we had thought for sure it would be a boy. Either way we didn't care we are just excited that everything checked out okay. Now it's on to the name game. We have some names we like but who knows what we will end up with. My due date didn't change so I am due April 4th. Most likely I will be induced the week before my due date. Because of the blood clot I had 2 months ago I have the lovely chore of giving myself injections of blood thinners into my stomach 2 times a day
(Jim also pitches in when I can't seem to find a spot not bruised or sore). In order to control the bleeding and if I want an epidural during delivery I have to be off of the shots for at least 24 hours. It is more likely that this cute little ball of sweetness will come the end of March. We couldn't be more excited to be parents and we are so thankful that so far everything has been great. I feel great and I am so thankful for life!
HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO ALL!
