On Friday Jason and I were able to see our 6-inch baby on the big screen and he or she was the cutest thing ever :) Everything looked good. We had the chance to find out if it was a boy or girl, but where is the fun in that? We’re looking forward to our early November surprise. Yesterday we narrowed our possible boy names to seven, which is still a lot, but we have a few months to work on it. Today we’ll do the same with the girl names. So, this is your last chance to get your name of choice on the record ;) Wanda gave me a wonderful idea when I originally posted the pregnancy news about combining family names and I think we may end up doing that for a middle name if it’s a girl. Thanks, Wanda!
This week I’ve felt it kick for the first time :) On the flip side, I’m still getting sick a few days a week. But my good days are better and my tummy is getting bigger every day, so things seem to be progressing as they should.
Because of my age they did want me to do an amnio, but we chose not to. We did the early high risk testing and found it a little stressful and, honestly, not that useful. Given the choice again we would not do it. I’m only mentioning it because I wish I’d heard from someone that it’s okay to skip it instead of just listening to the doctor. It’s your choice, not his.
I’ll hit the halfway point this week, so it’s time to start planning. I’ve got some good ideas for a book themed nursery, but am welcome to more ideas for that too.
