Yesterday we had our official ultrasound. It's my favorite day of being pregnant, the day of the ultrasound. Other than actually having the baby, of course. I love hearing those reassuring words from the ultrasound tech, you know, beautiful kidneys, heart, and brain, no spina-bifida and everything else that they can see. Hearing that everything checks out a-okay feels so good. Our little dovie was so fun to watch too. She had her feet up by her face and was playing with them with her little hands.
We have a friend who is an ultrasound tech who let us come in when I was fourteen weeks to find out what we are having but it was pretty early to be sure. This one confirmed we were having a girl. And as a plus they moved my due date up ten days. Whoop-whoop. Which makes me twenty-two weeks pregnant. The big day is October 5th now.
I feel like my belly is so much bigger much sooner than before but that is to be expected with my third pregnancy. Already I feel like I am walking with that pregnancy waddle. This time I feel more patient about being pregnant. I don't feel that urgency for the wait to be over like I did with my first two. I'm just fine to have her all to myself for now and wait out the summer until she comes.
