My appointments went well on Wednesday. I went to the OB first and saw the 3rd doc, first time this pregnancy. She walked in and said, "How is baby?" I responded by saying, "You mean babies!" I was annoyed! You could tell she totally didnt read my chart. She said everything looked fine and lets get you upstairs to your other appt. She listened to the heartbeats briefly, but didnt measure my belly. I was looking forward to seeing how big its gotten, so I was disappointed. By the time I realized it, the appointment was over. Needless to say, I dont plan to schedule any appointments with her again. Luckily, I adore the other two docs and can only hope one will be there on the big day!
My specialist appointment was quick. They did an internal ultrasound to measure my cervix, which was almost 5. She did a short abdominal ultrasound to check gender and listen to heartbeats. The babies look fabulous and healthy.
Everyone wants to know how I feel about the genders. I feel..overwhelmed? Of course, I am simply thrilled that we have had an uncomplicated pregnancy thus far and that I have two healthy sons on the way. I think its more that I was coming to terms with being happy with 4 kids and being done after this. Then again, I really thought our chances for a girl were pretty high! Now, Im backtracking and reevaluating things. Life is going to be so much fun with 4 little boys under 4. They will always have someone to play with. We will take the term Mamas boy to a whole new level.
Tom is simply thrilled. I mean, 4 sons? He couldnt be happier. I am beyond thankful that my sons have such an amazing Daddy to look up to. Tom is the best example of a good father. He is hands on, hardworking, loving and kind. Everything I want my children to be, and more. :)
I go back to the doctor at 18 weeks for a quick cervix check and then at 20 to the OB and for the big level 2 ultrasound. We thought we were 100% decided on their names, but now I am second guessing. I cant wait until we decide and can call them by name!
