Baby Size: Deli Sized Pickle

The title of this entry has nothing to do with anatomy. We have no idea what we are having. Just the overall size of the child right now.

I had a monthly checkup with the midwives today. Quinn got to come with me this time. It adds a dash of chaos, but a spoonful of tenderness to have her there.

She asked me if I could teach her how to pee in a cup.

She weighed herself too. Except she smiled with results. Much different than my reaction

She said the heartbeat sounded like horses galloping.

She told one nurse she wanted a brother. Another nurse she wanted a sister.

They won’t let her come for the ultrasound, which is actually fine with me. She doesn’t really enjoy when the attention is not on her, (which makes me slightly nervous for the arrival of this child) so we may be better off keeping her with granmda for that appointment.

That appointment is about 2 weeks away. No, we are not finding out the gender. I have to say that waiting until the very end saved for the one of best moments of my life.
