I had my doctor’s appointment today to confirm a heartbeat and little baby didn’t disappoint! It’s always a little nerve wracking to not know for sure how everything is progressing. In a weird way it can be comforting to have morning sickness; you know that your body is still working on growing that little baby. I loved seeing that little flicker! He or she is growing and doing well, just a little gummy bear in my belly.
I filmed the ultrasound on my iPhone for Chris, since he wasn’t able to come to this appointment (he was at home with Penny since we haven’t told our family yet and it would be a little hard to explain a doctor’s appointment that we both have to go to…) He’ll get to come next time!
My doctor adjusted my due date a little, so now we’re looking at March 11. This puts me right around my district’s Spring Break, so hopefully I’ll be able to stay on maternity leave through the rest of the school year – 5 whole months with little baby Simons and Penelope!
My next appointment will be in late August, and we’ll have one more ultrasound to check in on the baby. Yay!
