I've decided I need to start compiling a list of all the precious things that are said to me/my stomach regarding the baby. From time to time (as I remember), I will try and post some here for the reading pleasure.
"Hi there little guy..I'm your daddy and I love you." -obviously Jesse
"Well, just put a soccer ball in front of your stomach, and if it kicks, we'll know it's yours." -Aunt Jess
"S/he's just kinda swimming around in there.."
"Oh!! My niece/nephew is gonna be a swimmer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" -Crazy Aunt Limey
Text conversation with Uncle Joel.
Me: when I find out I'm pregnant, do you want me to just send you a text or call you?
Me: *dials* hi!
Joel: *silence* ...hi...
Me: this is me calling you!
Joel: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOH MYYYYYYYYYYYYYY WORRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRD.
"Don't look at me, I don't want baby to see my angry." -Jesse
Right after we found out at about 4 weeks, I was able to see sister-in-law Erin. Her response was screaming, and then "can I say hi to it now!?!?!?!?! Would that be too weird??!?!?"
At the 8 week appointment for the first ultrasound and check-in:
"We won't be able to hear a heart beat..it doesn't have one yet."
"Jesse...it's alive. How do you think we have an argument against abortionists? It definitely has a heart beat, and we'll be able to hear it today."
*softly, awed* "We'll be able to hear it's heart beat today?!"
"It looks like a shrimp..and sounds like a dog barking." -Jesse (looks like a shrimp in the first ultrasound, heart beat sounded like a dog barking far away I guess).
I'm sure there have been more, but they aren't coming to my brain right now. I'll post more as I think of them :)
--Real fast. I am starting to feel "flutters" which is really exciting for me. Jesse can't feel 'em yet, but I'm excited for when he'll be able to.
I got a call back to the Y for a second interview!
We get to go to Findlay this weekend for Easter!!!!! That's all.
