So! Where were we? Oh yes. Mid-pregnancy report. Right. I'm 21 weeks now, just past the halfway point of my third pregnancy. This pregnancy is going by really fast, mostly because I'm preoccupied with the two kids already living so largely and loudly in my life, and partly because, well, it's the third time around. Nothing's a surprise really.
A few days ago, Vince and I dropped off our two boys at their grandparents' house and went off to St. Luke's Global to have our congenital anomaly scan. That's when a sonologist peers in the womb to check on the baby, ya know, if the baby has all its parts. I always find this scan so stressful. But, thank God, everything's there: the brain, the eyes, the nose, the mouth, the spine, the arms and legs, hands and feet, all ten fingers and all ten toes, the kidneys, the stomach, the four-chambered heart beating so strong and steady, and the penis.
Yes! Yes! We're having another boy!
|Another one of these cuties!|
We're so happy!
Vince was hoping for a girl and I wanted one, too, because I had found the most perfect name in the whole world for a girl. It's so perfect that every time I see other girls' names (including mine), I sigh wistfully. But a boy is fantastic! Three boys! Wow. Crazier times ahead! We can't wait!
Now we just need to find a name for the new little boy. Vince is already busy with that. He's always the one excited with the names of our kids. I love him for being even more excited than me haha. Four months to go! Can't wait to meet the little cutie!
