I was not expecting to have this adorable 12 1/2 week sonogram photo for your viewing pleasure because I wasn't supposed to have one until 19 weeks when we found out what we were having. But the Lord works in mysterious ways, so let me explain.
12 week sonogram
8 week sonogram
There, on the left side. Wouldn't that worry you too? So what else to do but start to google. I googled 8 week sonograms and everyone I pulled up did NOT have this black hole.
Fast forward to my 12 week appointment. This was just an appointment to hear the heart beat and talk to the doctor. I was really really really wanting to do another sonogram, but she's pretty by the book on stuff like that so I was afraid to ask her if I could do one. I mentioned it to the nurse when she walked us back, and she said if I was worried about it that I should say something to her, but that my doctor pays very close attention to stuff like that, and if she thought there was a problem she would've definitely followed up on it. That made me feel a little better so I told her I wasn't going to ask for the sonogram (although I secretly still wanted one really bad).
Then my doctor comes in, we chat for a quick second and then she uses the little doppler thing on my stomach. And she can't seem to find a heartbeat. So now I'm a nervous wreck. So then she calmly says ok let's get you back to sonogram. Of course I'm now worried about the baby and have totally forgotten that I was wanting a sonogram for the other reason. So she walks back there with us and the sonographer does her thing and hallelujah, there's the heartbeat and baby squirming around.
If I had a dollar for every time Ryder picked up something random off the ground, put it on his head, and started to sing Happy Birthday to You... you guessed it, I'd be a millionaire.
I did go through my phone and found a few pieces of evidence:
"Happy Birthday to Lego Toys"
More long lost phone pictures.
The answer to grocery shopping moms prayers.
And let me not forget....
Friday Ryder's Grandaddy and T picked him up from school to take him to the park, etc. They didn't have any pull ups so Grandaddy ran in the store while Anna Terrell stayed in the car with Ryder. I got a picture message from Anna Terrell telling me he came out with some mini graham crackers, wipes and a 25 pack of these:
Oh no, they aren't going to waste at my house. He wears them proudly at home, frequently shouting "I have on princess pull ups!!! But I'm not a girl though!!!"
Fear not, these are only worn at home. I pack his boy ones for outings and school.
