A couple weeks ago, I had a dream that we found out the baby was a girl. I didn’t want to get my hopes up, so I convinced myself that we were having another boy, which would have been fine with me. Tashi was guessing a girl…and he was right! I am so excited to dress her in cute dresses & pink, lots of pink!
This wonderful news almost made up for the not so good news. The placenta is partially covering my cervix, and if it doesn’t move up & away from my cervix, I’ll have to have a C-section. This also means I’m not allowed to exercise. I just bought a new maternity yoga DVD, so I was quite put out. I’m glad that I verbally expressed my disappointment at the thought of no exercise, because at first, my doctor told me that I’d have to wait 2 months before I had another sonogram to determine if the placenta moved out of the way. After I spoke up, she then said I really only had to wait 1, instead of 2 months – what a change! At least I get to see our little baby girl again at another sonogram in 1 month. I love seeing her move around on the monitor.
Aidan is so excited to be able to call the baby a girl, instead of “the baby.” We showed him the sonogram pics & he was so happy that he could actually see her head, arms & feet. He even kissed one of the pics!
The 1st pic below is a profile of her head & her little foot floating above her belly; 2nd pic is another profile with her hand near her nose & part of her leg. She sure was active during the sonogram! She kept nudging me, and kept trying to push against the sonogram wand!
