We listened to the whir of the baby H's heart beat again yesterday. Who knew that small sound could be so comforting? As the doctor squirted on the gloppy goop Erin said "It's not really a baby in there. My mom swallowed a clock." We all had a good laugh. The doctor asked if that made me the alligator from Peter Pan. I've always preferred to think of myself as Wendy, but I'm sure Erin could share many of my "alligator" moments with anyone willing to listen.
I opted out of the AFP screening. My doctor seemed less than thrilled with my decision, but he was respectful of my choice none the less. He even offered support by saying that he didn't see any reason for me not to have a perfectly healthy pregnancy and baby.
After the doctor visit, I treated us to a few scoops at 31 flavors. Sometimes, it's the simple things that bring the most joy.

Are you going to find out what the baby is? If you are, how long before you do? We had our ultrasound for Cece at 17 weeks. But, that was a little earlier since my preg. was hight risk. Just curious:)
