I am 9 weeks today. I have had an interesting and memorable week. The most dramatic for me is that I'm showing, for real. I was TOTALLY not expecting it this fast! I've given up fighting it, and I've started wearing maternity pants. They sure are comfortable, but it was a hit in the gut.. literally! I went for my sonogram apt on Friday. Mal and Aniston were able to go with me. This pregnancy will be a lot different than mine with Aniston. Randy worked for Fed Ex then and had every monday off, so he went to every appointment with me. This time, its UPS schedule M-F and working 50 hours a week. Hopefully, I can work it out where Mal can keep going with me. Dr. Hurst said the baby was measuring just right, and he placed my due date for December 26th. He said that as long as everything goes great, and especially if I'm dialating early, like last time, he will enduce me the week before on December 19th or 20th. I'm hoping its the 19th because the baby would share a birthday with Nanny (Randy's mom) and Gina (sister n law). That would be fun. Dr. Hurst's plan is to get me home before Christmas and before he goes out of town the week after. All this sounds good to me!
Aniston is getting more excited every day about the baby. She has started talking to the baby through my belly button. She likes to get me water so the baby will be strong and healthy. She's also excited about being able to share her toys and clothes with her baby brother or sister.
We've been thinking of names, and I'm pretty sure we've found our favorites. That of course will remain a secret! We'll always take your ideas!
I will post sonogram and baby bump pictures later today. We've got a busy day ahead of us, if I can ever get off the couch! We've decided to put our house on the market and we found a house we love. Pray for us that we are able to get it!
