Est Due Date / Weeks + Days: April 9 / 11 weeks + 2 days
Upcoming Appointments: Next one coming up is the week after next week, when I’ll be at 13 weeks. She told me we would just listen to the baby’s heartbeat via Doppler this time to make sure everything is a-okay.
How are you feeling?: Super crampy and little twinges of pain here and there in the abdomen. I think it’s just my uterus expanding and making rooms for bubs to grow. DEFINITELY have a baby bump now! 😅
Rants/Raves: OMG we’re having a BOY. 😬💙 Mini hubby!!! 💙💙💙 We found out Friday from the NIPT test but it still feels not really real!! I was predicting girl and hubby was predicting boy, and since we want both eventually we honestly had no preference this time around!
Also, we told our first people this weekend! FIL had to cancel his trip down here due to work and since we didn’t want to tell him via phone call, we spilled and told him! And then swore him to secrecy so it’ll be a complete surprise for our other 3 parents when we tell them this weekend! 😬 Now that we have the NIPT results and know baby boy is healthy it’s driving me totally bonkers not telling them over the phone, I’m literally about to burst!! 💥
Questions: Well, this may be super early still, but gotta start thinking about it sometime soon as a boy mom— thoughts on circumcising and circumcision rates in your social circles? I read it’s becoming less and less common in the U.S. Just kind of want to get a feel of the group’s thoughts for or against here and see how common it is amongst this community.
