Sweet Wiggly Baby - 11 weeks!
21 May 2013
Today we saw our precious miracle baby again! It’s crazy how I still get nervous when I walk into the doctor’s office. I don’t really have a reason to be scared anymore, but I can’t help it. All those fears melted away though when I looked on that screen and saw that perfect little wiggly baby who already has my heart.
I am eleven weeks pregnant tomorrow. I can’t believe it! Dr. N said that the baby looks perfect. We were able to get a really good look in 3D and even saw a little 4D shot of the baby moving around. Then the doctor asked if we wanted to know the gender. I said, “Of course we do. But there’s no way you can tell this early!” He looked offended and said, “Don’t tell me what I can do. If I say I can tell you, I can tell you!” I laughed and told him I would be shocked if he could tell today. So he poked my belly a few times to get the baby to move and got a brief look when the baby stretched one leg out. He told me what gender he thinks it is and even said he was 96% sure. I’m still skeptical, but we’ll find out soon enough if he was right or not.
I get to go back in three weeks instead of the usual four because he said that he would be able to tell for sure when I hit 14 weeks. (That’s hard for me to believe too, but I have to trust him! He’s an expert!) I can’t wait to find out who this is inside me! For now, it’s time to really get to work on narrowing down names that we like. It would be fun to have a name chosen when we find out if this is a boy or a girl.
Here are some photos of our precious miracle! I can’t believe how big this baby is getting!
