week 14 day 3

Mike and I went to the doctor's today.  It was good.  We ended up switching doctors (thanks, Christie) and other than the 90-minute wait to see the doctor, we were very pleased.  He actually explained the next couple of months to us and some issues with pregnancy to watch out for.  Luckily I had done quite a bit of research and already knew most of the facts but it was nice to actually hear it from a doctor.  We didn't realize how much we were missing out on from our other doctor until today.  Our other doctor didn't tell us squat.  It seemed as though he assumed we've had 10 children and didn't need to know any information.

The best part of the appointment was that the doctor did an ultrasound because he had kept us waiting so long and they have them there in their office which is super nice.  He felt bad and tried to make it up to us.  While we were waiting for him to come back into the room, we took a look at all of the posters on the wall.  When he walked back in, he caught us staring and pointing at all of the pictures and of how big the baby is at birth.  I told him it was huge and it's not coming out of me.

So we saw our little guy.  He was just hanging out in the uterus, floating, spinning, and moving his little arms and legs.  It was awesome.  We got a good look at his spine and tried to see if the baby's a boy or girl but it's a little too soon for that.  Bummer.  It was so fun to see him floating around and to see how big he's gotten in the last 8 weeks!  He is now 4 oz and about 8.5 cm long.  Crazy that he's going to triple or quadruple his size before the next appointment!

By today's appointment, it looks like the new due date is July 5 but I'm still hoping for sooner.  I guess we'll just have to see.  I decided if he comes early or on time, he's definitely mine and like me but if he comes any later than July 3, I will be doomed to be late for many, many more years to come.

  1. I'm glad you like your new doctor. That's great! That's awesome you got another ultrasound for free. How cool. I saw on facebook today like five people who get to know the gender of their baby in the next couple of days and week and I'm not going to lie I'm a bit jealous. I'm so excited to find out! I guess though I just have to be patient and our time will come.
