Speck! I had my first prenatal appointment today. After a family trip to Bangor, Matt stayed out in the waiting room with the kids (they loved the toys, books and fish tank) while I talked to the midwife about all the standard stuff.
Her first question was “What are you doing here? Your last two were born at home? So why are you with us now?” To which I said “Can I have my epidural now?”. After 3 natural child births, two of which were at home, I decided that since we now have awesome insurance, it’s time to give birth the way that nature intended it. In a sterile environment with lots and LOTS of drugs (just making sure you are paying attention, Heather 🙂
It was a good checkup and we were pleased to find out that we could get an ultrasound. Speck is doing fine and has a nice strong heart. It’s still too early to know if it’s a boy Speck or a girl Speck, but that’s ok. We’re just happy it’s a Speck. And he’s WIGGLY!
