We're having a baby! Okay, seriously - if you want to know just scroll down to the bottom. If not let me bore you with my wonderful story about ultrasounds in France.
Ultrasound appointments (echographies) are the most nerve wracking thing in the world, especially in France. It's already bad that I have to lay on the table half naked (no cute little cover up for this girl) but then I always have the worry about "what if something is wrong"? I think every mother (or mother-to-be) feels that way? Right?
Luckily every appointment is with my doctor, so I don't have to worry about some stranger rubbing goo on me while clicking away pictures of my stomach. And never mind that it takes him at least five minutes of taking pictures before he finally says "normal" and honesty that everything looks so jumbled that I really have no idea what I'm looking at. I find myself trying to figure out where his/her legs are and how they are positioned and trying to get a look at their goodies - but the camera never sits still and I can never really tell where the legs are.
And so for the moment, baby P #2 is doing well and all measurements are on target, phew! What a relief. Which means I don't have to stress until the next ultrasound. Now the only problem becomes trying to decide on a name because we can't seem to agree....because
Nathan is going to have a little brother to torment and torture! Someone to share secrets with and cause trouble. There is no longer a doubt that I am definitely a boy mom and I couldn't be happier!
