I had a 13 week appt today. My midwife wanted me to come in to see if I wanted to do the genetic blood tests or anything and I declined. But I had been having cramping off and on and she said we would go ahead and just check me out just to be safe. HB is 144
I *think* I've been feeling little flutters. She said most likely if I think I've felt them, I probably have since this is #4. BTW I'm calling this one T4 lol. (Our last name begins with a "T" so I thought it was funny).
Anyway, in 2-3 weeks I can call to make my anatomy u/s appt. Last time I was 21 or 22 weeks when I had it, so the fact that I can get in as early as 18 weeks is exciting! Not that I'll be finding out the gender (yet!) but it just means it's a little closer to everything!!
I've been making a list of boy and girl names to send to my husband so he can narrow some down. I keep adding names but not sure how many I should put on there because I don't want too many on the list but I also don't want him to say no to all of them ha ha.
It's finally starting to really hit me. Esp after my husband asked me to send him belly pictures instead of just the u/s because seeing my belly makes it more special and realistic for him. Also, I'm thinking of announcing my pregnancy on FB on Mother's Day.
I think I'll put a picture of my youngest with the caption "Desmond: being the baby expires November 2013" to see how many people catch on.
I also told my girls today about the baby. I gave them gifts and told them we were having another baby but I wanted to let them know just because we're having another doesn't mean it's going to take away from them. My oldest was surprised lol and my middle child was just excited to get a toy ha ha. And of course my son doesn't understand since he's only 13 1/2 months.
Have any of you ladies announced it yet? How did you do it or how will you?
