Baby Wednesday

Even when I was little, I knew what I wanted to be when I grew up. More than a princess, more than a movie star, more than a veteranarian, I wanted to be a mother. I used to cut the sleeves off of my shirts (much to my mother's annoyance :), and fashion little baby clothes that I would put on my dolls. I set up a "nursery" on one side of my closet, complete with a diaper bag, bottles, clothes, and accesories, and a baby that I would lay in a moses basket. These hours I spent pretending to be a mommy were the best, most joyful times. This afternoon, while sitting in a coffee shop with my dad, I realized, in a very real way, that my dream was coming true. God's purpose and plan for my life is being fashioned in my belly as we speak. How special! How exciting. I don't even care if it's a boy or girl, I just want to be it's mother. Can't wait!

In more specific baby news, I went to the doctor on Monday for my 16 week checkup. The nurse scared me because it took her a long time to find the heartbeat. Eventually she found it much lower than when she started. Either way, it was a very long 2 minutes!

I have an appointment scheduled to find out the gender on Monday, April 14th. A little less than 2 weeks away! I will be 18 weeks then. The doctor told me to be aware that there is a chance we may not see the gender if the baby isn't cooperating. Hmph. Haha, does that reveal my impatience? Anyway, if that's the case, we will just make an appointment again for 20 weeks. Hope it doesn't come to that then. You can pray for me that I have patience and trust God and His timing and plan. That's it for now... I have a few more things I want to post on that I hopefully get to in the next few days. 'Til then.....

What a beautiful post! Being a mommy is absolutely amazing - exhausting at times, but amazing nonetheless. You are already such a wonderful mommy to this little baby of yours!
