5 ultrasounds and 9,000 kicks later...

Wednesday, October 22, 2008

So it turns out, all of the kicks I've been feeling, are actually tiny fists and elbows. Baby is still breech (I thought for sure it had flipped). Which really doesn't matter, because we're having a repeat c-section anyways. But as I'm laying there on the table, with blue jelly goop spread all over my tummy, all I can think about is how it still hasn't settled in that I'm a mother at all. Eleanore distracted me from my hormonal nostalgia, and kept making me laugh. At one point she got jealous of baby brother or sister and started whining. Christopher said to her "don't be jealous...", and her reply was "I not jealous, I happy".

PS. Its a boy.

I'm so jealous!! I hope I can have a baby #2 someday.....after 8 months I've kinda started losing hope. I'm glad you finally found out though! I HATE ultrasounds (cause my bladder is always ready to burst), so I'm glad you don't have to have anymore for a while :o) Congrats!!

Oh my!!!

I am so freaking excited that I feel like I'm going to throw up. Literally. It could also be because I have zero stomach room left and just glutted for lunch. We'll call it excitement.

I knew it was a boy! Just look at that handsome profile. It looks like he's smiling. What a darling!!!

A million congratulations on your healthy and hearty baby boy. I can hardly wait to see him.

What are you going to name him? Are you going o spill ahead of time? I want to know!!!

Now you get to entertain such fun conversations as "to circ or not to circ." Everyone has such a strong opinion. If you ever want to talk to someone from the not circ camp, come talk to me. Otherwise I don't push my opinion. I hate that.

I owe you a pregnancy update, I know. By the time I get a second and am still awake, the last thing I want to talk about is pregnancy. Simply because I walk it and bear it all the time. :)
