We are having a baby...
Girl! The sonogram was so fun. Since I will be 35 by the time of delivery, I am now considered "old" and they check for a lot more stuff, which just means that we got an extra long sonogram look. We saw her heart beating and all four chambers, he measured her legs, head and arms. She is 14oz, measuring 2 days ahead of her due date (so a perfect size for her age thus far). He showed us the blood flow between me and the placenta and looked for abnormalities, but didn't see any.
While we were looking at her, I said "Ivan, you are going to have a sister" and he cried out "but I already have one!" Dominique kept saying over and over "that was fun seeing baby". I will be going for another sonogram in 6 weeks, so we will get to have another gaze at her before she comes next year. Doesn't that sound so very far away?
After the doctor's we went on an unsuccessful hunt for a maternity swimsuit. I found some, but not my size, then I found some my size, but all they had was the bottoms! So I went online. At least I was able to try on the ones that were the wrong size to know what the cut was like and imagine if it will work for lap swimming and aerobics class. Most women's swimsuits are just not made for swimming! But I think I found one that will work.
