Yesterday I had my 14 week appointment. Keith even took the afternoon off of work to come with me! (Thanks Keith!) My appointment was for 1:30, so we were there about 10 minutes early. They called me into the lab almost right away, much to my surprise. Once I was finished there, I sat down, and was called into the Doctor's office within a minute! She came in right away, I didn't even have to wait for anything! The best part was hearing the baby's heartbeat. I just couldn't stop grinning! I don't remember it being this exciting with Rowan, maybe I was more nervous then!
My Doctor likes to use the old wives tale of the heartrate for gender predicton, just for fun. So, she says it;s another boy! We were joking around a little bit, and she said maybe she should take a poll of all the babies she's delivered, and see how accurate her guessing is! She was right on with Rowan!
I think having another boy would be great (although, I still really want to have a girl someday) because it would make things a lot more simple with clothes and stuff. All we really need are some diapers! I'm sure there are more things I will need yet, of course, but another boy would sure help!
To all of you second time moms, what are some things that you found you needed to buy for the second baby? A few things on my list are a good breast pump, a cuddly wrap, a playpen, and possible a new stroller. Any suggestions? And Mel, I might just take you up on your offer of maternity clothes. I had a dream last night that I found this gorgeous dress in Winnipeg at a small maternity clothing store, that probably doesn't even exist! If only it were real... If anyone else has clothes they want to get rid of, let me know! I may just find a use for them!
