What we've been up to...
Well, we've been to the beach and we've made it home. The beach was a blast and I couldn't have asked for anything better! Karen and her family were there along with Pat and Paul in addition to my parents and Parker! We had a blast and we were able to celebrate Noah's and Parker's birthdays. I couldn't have asked for a more relaxing long weekend.
Lane and I went to the doctor this past Wednesday evening and it was a short but sweet appointment. We didn't get to have another ultrasound, but we did get to hear the heartbeat! The doctor said that the heartbeat sounded strong and she said that it was 140 beats per minute. When we got home we looked at the wives tales on google to see if we could get insight on the sex of the baby. No luck because everywhere we looked said it was a boy if it was 140 or below and it was a girl if it was 140 and above.
All along thoughout this pregnancy I've instinctively called the baby a girl. Lane tells me to continue calling it a girl so that I jinx it and we have a boy! Of course we both want a healthy baby, however we have an unspoken "bet" about the sex of the baby and we like to poke fun at each other about it. I did have a dream the other night that I was delivering the baby and we found out that we had a boy! At this point I'm not sure what it is - a lot of people tell me they think I'm having a girl, and I thought I knew because of my instincts, but these days I'm not sure anymore! It's all becoming an overjoyed mess in my mind! We should have an appointment in 5-6 weeks to find out the sex of the baby - and if I can talk Lane into it we might have a 3D ultrasound done earlier than that!!!! We'll see and we'll of course keep you posted! :)
