Yesterday was the big day! Well, next to the delivery day :) We were scheduled for our midway ultrasound yesterday, and Baby looks good. He (we do not have a name yet…) looks like he should for being almost 19 weeks along. We got to see him move around quite a bit. I was so glad to see this because I have not felt really any movement yet, and I was feeling anxious. At one point it looked like he was waving to us. The boys got a kick out of that!
Here he is waving!
This is a great picture of his profile.
Can you see his little foot?
This might be harder to see… the evidence of “boy” on off to the right :)
What is driving me crazy right now is that some of the people I am sharing the news with are saying things like, “Oh well, we love boys, too,” or “Maybe you could try for #4!” I have to make it clear here that I am very happy to be having boy #3! I admit that a girl would have been fun, too, but I love this baby the same no matter what. I had mixed feelings about which gender would be best, anyway. I guess this is because it really didn’t mattered.
All I can think about now is wrapping my arms around a tiny little baby and inhaling the wonderful scent of infanthood. Having another baby boy will bring back so many great memories of our first two. It is fun to pull out some of the little tiny clothes that were used before. I have passed on a lot of our baby things, but I saved the clothes and other things that were special to us. For instance, we have this one tiny little sleeper that has baseball prints all over it. There is a ton of this wonderful shade of blue all over the place. This sleeper is so small, it is hard to believe that when I put it on little R and little C when they were babies that it was actually too big! I am sure they will get a kick out of seeing those kinds of things and hearing stories about themselves.
So, now I can sit back and relax. I can now start thinking about things like names, room decor, and of course adding to his wardrobe :) I just ask for prayers that our new little bundle is healthy and has a safe delivery when the time comes.
