Disclaimer: If you’re the type of person who squirms at the thought of buying a box of tampons or at women experiencing bodily functions, this is not the post for you. If, however, you are pregnant, have been pregnant or have/have had a pregnant partner, you’ll likely relate and chuckle. I’ve watched enough television and friends go through their pregnancies to recognize common pregnancy symptoms–nausea during the first trimester, crazy cravings, moodiness and changing physique. Yet, much like my previous understanding that wine was off limits, but cheese was okay (soft, unpasteurized cheeses are a no-no), I was in for a few surprises.
Before the tech even said the words, I knew–we were having a little girl who now had a name, Josephine. Though I did not cry, my eyes welled up with tears of happiness. Something about that moment forever changed my world. We are going to have a little girl, and my thoughts drifted to Easter dresses complete with white gloves, tights and bonnets and princess themed birthday parties–though we hope she also takes an interest in sports, etc. We then saw our first glimpse of her perfect little face. The 4D technology is so amazing, I already think she looks like Trent did in his baby photos. And speaking of Trent, I’ve never seen someone so excited to be a father. Afterward he admitted he had really been hoping for a baby girl all along.
