So we went to see Dr. Naomi (it really is pretty uncanny, the only difference is that our Naomi is pregnant and the one on TV is not...) and she did all the standard stuff. She asked how Christie was feeling. She reminds us how far along we are. She asks if we have any questions. She then listens to all 50 of the questions that I've written down/ typed out on my phone over the past month... she's a good and patient doctor! Christie hasn't gained much weight yet, so we asked about that... she said its normal to not gain or even lose weight over the first trimester. So we're all good there. We asked some questions about safe products, etc. Then we found out some exciting news...
Before I share this news I need to point out that Christie was born on March 6th. I am sometimes very creative with birthday/anniversary presents (especially when we were dating, go figure) and sometimes I am not creative at all... though I haven't forgotten any yet! Woo hoo! That being said, keep these two facts in mind:
- Birthdays are a pretty big deal.
- Finding out the sex of a baby is a pretty big deal.
Genius Right? No? What? That doesn't count as a birthday present? Crap! Well, I thought it was a great idea... Oh well.
I have also decided that it would be cool to take a picture of Christie's belly every week until the baby comes to be able to look back and see the progression over time. Notice that I said "I decided"... I still have to convince Christie... so we'll see.
I DO have some other pretty cool news but that will have to wait till next time (I'll try to not wait till next week)
