I wanted to post a update. I got in touch with my midwife and we scheduled my first appointment for this Friday; they're being super flexible and allowing us to pay them per visit as opposed to the first payment of $900 which is nice; since we're waiting on our tax return... still.
Since I haven't seen them yet they wanted me to schedule my BIG ultrasound this week so I scheduled it for Friday since I have an interview earlier that day and DH is taking the day off of work, so I was so happy that the ultrasound place was so flexible in fitting me in on Friday and still being able to get the results to my midwives by the next day.
I also was able to get my records from my OB's office, which I thought was going to be a long nightmare, and at least 10 business days, but they got them all together for me in less than 24 hours, I just need to pick them up.
Anyways I'm excited for Friday and I know Callie will love it... then we can finally know what our baby is. I got DH to agree on our girl middle name, well... it was more of me saying I've gotten used to it and would he mind, and he said it was fine, so yay! Anyways, I'll post the update on Friday with photos (if I can, we'll be staying at my mom's house and I'm not sure if her scanner is hooked up, but I'm assuming it is).
Just wanted to update you all on my "big" ultrasound I had today. Everything measured great, healthy baby with 10 fingers, 10 toes, 2 arms, 2 legs (haha... Callie helped to count). We are having another girl! I could not be happier, we're going wth the name Brooke Malin and now we get to enjoy our first prenatal visit with our midwives tomorrow; so I'll have another update for you all tomorrow night.
Yea on a healthy girl! And again, I of course love the name! So happy for you all!
My midwife appointment yesterday went really well. My blood pressure was excellent and according to my weight check from the OB's office I haven't gained anything since my first visit (which is good).... even though I feel like I have gained, but I guess my weight is just distributing a bit different? Anyways, we got to listen to Brooke's heart beat (162 bpm) and Callie loved that part. I was able to schedule my next appointment with this one midwife, there are 2 and I switch between the two at each appointment, so all my appointments are made for the summer... which is nice to know way ahead of time to plan way ahead. Here are some photos from the ultrasound on Friday. We got to see her in 3D/4D and a few minutes ago I grabbed Callie's baby book because I had a 3D/4D done at 20 weeks, 4 days and again later on after she got more fat... and comparing Brooke to Callie, Brooke already has more baby fat on her than Callie did... so I'm just hoping it continues and she's at least as big as Callie was at birth.
Of course the girl shot isn't the best one.... the one from Callie's u/s were WAY better but the tech probably just didn't get the best angle on it, oh well.
I love reading updates.
Just wanted to QUIETLY share with anyone who checks in on this thread... I'm prego! Due date is April 27th. Totally planned, totally excited.
I'll post something in the general board in a couple of months, but for now I'd like to keep things quiet. (And PLEASE no Facebook comments!) I've only told our closest family and friends, but since I consider you ladies "family", I had to share with at least SOME of you!
