So being pregnant for 22 weeks now has been quite a journey, a very rewarding one. Seeing my body change and my belly grow is fascinating! The best part is that it is all happening because my daughter is developing inside of me. The word “daughter” is such a new and exciting concept for me, and I just can’t get enough of it. Becoming a mom is one of the most amazing feelings in the world. I am so looking forward to embracing the new role as my wonderful husband and I prepare for our baby girl.
Prior to the doctor’s visit we were set that our baby was going to be a boy. We looked at baby clothing for boys and even almost bought a blue cover for the stroller. I mean we were sure! (at least that’s what we thought) But on the day of the doctor’s visit, I had a different feeling and as I shared it with my husband he asked me why I kept insisting for all these months that it was a boy. I brushed it off and decided not to guess because we were about to find out in a few hours. The first thing the doctor asked as she began her ultrasound, was our guess about the gender. “Boy” we said, with a feeling of confidence, to which she replied “you are both wrong!” Ah! Wrong? My 5 months of “motherly instinct” failed? My husband grabbed my hand, looked at the screen and said “that’s our baby girl.” We were so overwhelmed with refreshing joy and surprise, that tears were inevitable.
Four more months until we meet our precious daughter. Can’t wait!
