Little Man, Peanut and Baby!
Today I am 12 weeks pregnant with our 3rd baby. I have written and rewritten this post in my head for the last 12 weeks. In fact, I haven't been able to post many stories these days because they all lead back in some way to my morning sickness or Little Man pronouncing to anyone who will listen that I have a baby in my belly. I was worried that I would lose the baby early since that has happened in the past. But this morning I had another sonogram and I got to see my baby clap and dance and move and it was amazing. What struck me as I watched the baby on the sonogram screen with tears in my eyes was how it just doesn't get old, seeing my baby that is only 2 inches long dancing and moving. It was awesome! I think I even whispered to myself about how even though I have done this before it feels brand new. Upon hearing my whispered confession the doctor looked at me and said, "that is how I know you were meant to be a mother". And I am, meant to be a mother that is. As much as abhor being pregnant and am not a pleasant pregnant woman to be around - well the end result is so worth it. So roll on October because we are excited for this new baby to join the family.
Just for the record my official due date is November 3rd but all my doctors are in agreement that due to Peanut's 9 pound 3 ounce birthweight at 36 weeks, this baby will probably be born in late October.
Any suggestions for a nickname for this baby - should be gender neutral if we pick one before he/she is born?
