Today was my first prenatal appointment for the current pregnancy. No one gave me a hard time for being back so soon. 😉 My doc admitted to only being a “little” surprised and enjoyed the stories of our kids’ recent antics. I was amused by his comment that “maybe you’ll get a girl this time, too,” because of course, that’s why we’re still having babies, right?
For the record, I don’t mind either way. I will happily welcome another boy to our troop and I will happily welcome another girl to grace our home. It’s always been that way. Admittedly, the hope for a girl was much higher with each new pregnancy before our Princess arrived, but gender has never been the sole determinant in our — ha — ‘family planning.’ We kind of figure God knows what He’s about, and we’ll take whomever He gives us. Rascal, however, thinks the baby is a girl.
So today I got to see our new baby on the ultrasound. He/She looks like a little bean–hence the post title. Most reassuring was the visible heartbeat. 🙂 There’s nothing like meeting your child for the first time.
