OB visit

We had our first appointment with our OB was this morning. I wasn't sure what all would happen this time around...Dr. did an ultrasound with Malachi at 12 weeks (probably for our peace of mind!). So when we were ushered into the room and I saw the ultrasound machine, I was quite excited!! We were able to see our little peanut (looks just like one!!) somersaulting and wiggling around like a little fish. So adorable. Malachi was not interested in the least and just wanted to play with and throw his cars (Matchbox cars are his latest obsession. He runs around the house with his fists full of cars and loves to "drive" them (complete with sound effects!) on the window sill and wooden chest in the living room. He is definitely all boy!). Dr said the baby looked really good and measured 11 weeks today so he said it is a bit ahead (today is 10 weeks 5 days). He kept saying that it is a girl. Maybe it is because I brought up the fact that while I was pregnant with Malachi, a lady at church told me that I probably just can't carry or give birth to a healthy girl and that she knew several women in our church who had children of all the same gender who had miscarried the opposite gender and that I was probably the same. It was all I could do to keep from balling my eyes out!! People just don't think!! He reassured me taht what happened to Natalie was such a kazillion to one type of thing (we could only find less than 20 cases of her problem in recorded history!) and that that type of thing very rarely happens. Anyways, so I don't know if he was trying to make me feel better or if he has a feeling (since the u/s was too early to tell). By the time I was this far along with both of the others, I knew for certain the gender and I ended up being right. But I have no "for sure" feeling either way on this one. I tend to lean towards a girl when I think about it, but since I want a girl at home so bad, I wonder if that is just wishful thinking. I also feel much more weepy so far with this one, so I wonder if that could mean girl since there are more female hormones in my body, making me want to cry at the drop of a hat. Hmmm...I guess we'll see!

Well, I will end my ramblings. Hope you are all having a fabulous Monday!
