I don't know who is more excited about our news, me or Rita Clare. Of course, she wants it to be a girl and sets out clothes she grows out of aside for the baby to someday wear. She has also stepped up to try to take care of me. She likes to bring me water or Cheerios on my tougher mornings, and is especially taken leadership when I'm not feeling well. It has been very sweet and reassuring.
Yesterday, we had an ultrasound to check on the due date, since I wasn't confident I was only 8 weeks along. It turns out my instinct was right. Instead, I was 9 weeks and 4 days. It was weird to jump over a week and a half but I am glad I now know with more accuracy. Silly as this sounds, I enjoy reading each week of development and now I am not a week and a half behind knowing what is happening to our new baby. Never having had an ultrasound this early, I was really surprised to see how detailed the features of the baby were and that the baby was already moving around in my uterus. Not only does it feel even more real to our family but it also has personalized the experience for me even more.
Here's our little one:
