Two days ago, I thought it was Thursday. But today actually is Thursday, which is a wonderful thing!
We have the day off from work â€“ today was all about our anatomy ultrasound. I canâ€™t even believe they have the technology to do this, but around 20 weeks, the doctor can check out the growing babyâ€™s brain, heart, liver, kidneys, toes and fingers, and all the other bits and bobs. And, of course, if youâ€™re going to find out the babyâ€™s sex, you canâ€¦
Per doctorâ€™s orders, I had a lot of caffeine and sugar immediately before the appointment to ensure the baby was active. White chocolate mocha â€“ I have never had you before but YOU ARE DELICIOUS.
Ultrasound went quite well; everything seems healthy. And when it came time to check out the babyâ€™s legs, the technician told us to look away (hereâ€™s why we are choosing to wait). I squeezed my eyes shut but was soooo tempted to peek. Itâ€™s like knowing which closet your Christmas presents are hidden in!
Per traditionâ€¦ post-appointment Indian food with my in-laws:
If it ainâ€™t broke, donâ€™t fix it â€“ Vegetable Korma, again. With the tomato-coconut soup to start.
