We saw you!!! You are really in there, Poppy!!!! We had our first ultrasound and doctor's appointment yesterday and I almost lost it. As soon as you popped up on the monitor, I started crying then laughing (I don't know...just nerves?). I looked at Daddy and he had a twinkle in his eye that I've never seen before. You are REAL! I cannot believe it. Seeing you made this whole experience so much more real. Of course I knew you were in there before we saw you, but geez...what an unbelievable thing.
You are about 1.5 inches and already have fingers! At first, you were sleeping, so there was no action, but all of the poking and moving around, you awoke and started dancing for us! You even waved. :) It was truly the best experience of my life. I'm sure I will be saying that a lot over the next months (and years!), but seriously...
We left the doctor's with a folder stuffed with information about foods, medications, classes, exercises, etc...you sure are high maintenance already ;) I am signing up for every class I can. I don't want to let you down, little person!
Sidenote: I can't believe we have to wait another 10 weeks to find out if you are a he or a she...talk about anxiety!!!!!!
That's all for now, Poppy. I am still getting sick and can't eat everything (ie. chicken, Asian, anything that's not carbs and cheese) but Daddy is taking great care of me - backrubs, foot rubs, Wendy's runs ;) He's a keeper for sure! You are one lucky baby to have him as a Daddy. (P.S. Did you read what he wrote about me? Holy tear drops!)
Bye for now, little thang...this weekend is my birthday and I am positive you will be getting lots of attention from everyone!! I am so popular right now thanks to you!!! :)
