Mommy made the big announcement at work today, so everyone knows. They were all very excited for her. Her boss did suggest that she just give birth to me at the office and then not take a maternity leave, but I don't think that mommy is going to go for that!
I thought I had given mommy enough signs telling her that she needed to eat breakfast before she got ready in the morning (i.e. the dry heaving, gagging, and nausea), but obviously it wasn't enough. This morning mommy actually passed out in the shower! Of course, she was totally fine after she ate breakfast. Maybe NOW she'll listen to me!
Mommy's getting a little belly! She's just excited that she hasn't gained any weight yet. She says she wants her little "baby belly", but I think she will change her mind when she is 9 months pregnant and can barely move!
Mommy and daddy went to the doctor again today. They just talked about some boring stuff at first, like family history and down syndrom screening options, but then the doctor pulled out the doppler to try to hear my heart beat. The doctor wasn't able to find it with the doppler yet, so mommy and daddy got to see me again! Well, my ADHD has started really early (daddy says I'm already taking after him) and I wouldn't stop bouncing around during the ultrasound...it kinda tickled! I had fun swimming around and mommy and daddy had fun watching me do it. They were able to see my little arms and legs and heard my heart beat, a fast 166 beats per minute. My mommy will go back to the doctor on May 21, and she should be able to hear the heart beat then with the doppler. Mommy and daddy are just very eager to find out "what" I am...boy or girl. Guess what...I'm not telling what I am until I'm about 20 weeks old. They'll just have to wait a little bit longer ; )
Mommy had her first doctor appointment today and she got her first peak at me! She found out that I'm due to be born on 11/20/2007! Mommy and daddy got to see my little heart beating so fast, at 164 beats per minute. They were both so excited and releaved. I am 7 weeks, 6 days old today! Mommy will go back in two weeks and will maybe be able to see me again!
