I am dying to hear about Meredith's arrival!
My level II and fetal echo went terrific. The little bugger looks perfect. I'm so thrilled and excited and elated!!! No signs of any problems with the heart (which was my biggest fear - due to being a diabetic). S/he moved around in there like crazy! I got to watch the movement on the screen for 1½ hours - what a joy. I didn't get to watch the fetal echo because I had to lay on my side and that turned me away from the screen. My hubby got to see - said it was amazing to see the little tiny valves in the heart pumping away! What a miracle it truly is. It was extremely hard not to find out the sex. Curiosity was killing me!!
So, we told my daughter last night that she's going to be a big sister. We played "hangman" and did "Claire is going to be a big sister". At first, she said "that's NOT cool Mom" because she thought it said "a big stinker". Once she realized that I had a baby in my belly, she went ballistic. She was so excited and happy. She ran down to tell my Mom, she called my MIL, my FIL and her uncle (who obviously already all knew). She told the lady in Home Depot today too! I'm so happy she's excited.
It was a wonderful day yesterday
Looking forward to hearing about baby Meredith's arrival!
