Meet Sprout!

I had my first appt on Monday. Sorry I am just getting around to updating you about it, but I have been very busy with car accident stuff (plus I have been very sore and spending most of my time laying down). If the picture shows up, that is Sprout. Anyway, Sprout (though I think s/he looks more like a shrimp, but won't call him/her that so as not to jinx them) has a healthy heartrate of 185. Alice's HR was never more than 160s, at least when checking it at appts. My EDD, according to u/s is March 17... St. Patty's Day! My OB's office is keeping my EDD at March 14, according to LMP. I should tell you I disagree. My EDD is March 20/22, according to O date. So Sprout is measuring a bit ahead. When I said I wouldn't call him/her Shrimp in hopes of not jinxing them, I did the same with Alice. She looked like an elephant at my first u/s, but I didn't call her Dumbo, out of fear of her having huge ears! I'm glad all is well with Sprout. I was worried after the accident. While we aren't out of the woods yet, we are getting closer. I'll attempt to do another post this evening, as we are meeting with the attorney at 6pm. Sent from my AT&T Smartphone.

Hi! My Name's Lindsay. You Might Know Me from Such Things as Being Your Sister said...

Hello, Sprout! I cannot wait to meet you. Hey, if you're a girl, maaaaaybe I can convince your mama to name you after me, too. Maybe a middle name this time. And maybe Brigid, being that that's part of my baptismal name, and it's Irish. You know, since you're gonna be an Irish baby. Wink, wink, nudge, nudge. Go on, nudge her for me. Oh, and if you're a boy, maybe Pádraig, since that's the Irish for Patrick. (Do you think your mom's gotten the hint yet? Yeah? Ok.) :o)

I should point out that while Alice does not have Dumbo ears, her ears do sort of flap out a bit... but they're adorable ears, simply the best.

How sweet... I'm sorry you are still sore- car accidents are no good at all. Keep growing sprout!
