Yesterday I woke up and got all ready for our first appointment, only to arrive and find out I was indeed a day early. Go freaking figure. I come home to even look at the calendar (which I should have checked first) and it was for sure the wrong day. Idiot alert!
Well today I arrived for my actual appointment. It was such a long appointment because I am at a new office so I had to go through all the wonderful questions and long talks that make me want to stab my eyes out. They were a tad stressed when I told them just how fast Jude arrived. Ya know the amazing delivery where he came within 20 minutes of getting to the hospital, that one.
Well they said it will be even faster this time. YAY. NOT. We live about 10 mins from the hospital so who knows what will happen. I just need to be on top of any pains I have near the end of pregnancy.
We did our ultrasound and everything looked fab. The baby had a strong heart rate in the 170's and he/she was sucking their hand. I love hearing the heart beat and seeing the flutter, makes everything more real. Its still a miracle to witness it, whether it's your first or your fourth. It never gets old. I know it's our fourth pregnancy but this baby is just as special and unique as our first, second and third. I think that is what is so cool about being a parent, none of your kids will ever be the same. I love how God makes us all different. It's so neat and unbelievable how small a baby starts out in your womb and grows before your eyes into sassy toddlers.
Anyways. All went well. My only concern is the EXTREME exhuastion that I have been experiencing. It is HORRID. The moment I wake up I am tired. I just feel like I am going to fall over at any minute. I am praying to God that it passes in the second trimester. I started an iron supplement just in case in the meantime while I wait for my blood results.
Here are a few pics from the day.
If we are not following eachother on instagram get on it @alliedarr
Thank you so much for all your sweet prayers and praise about our sweet blessing. We are extremely blessed (I may be a tad overwhelmed, Jordan isn't phased one bit haha) but very very excited about welcoming another little one into our family this December.
And I for sure think it's a boy. Again. Mark my word. :)
I am digging the name Samuel at the moment!
