On Monday we had our second appointment with Erin, our midwife. We were there for about an hour and learned all about delivering the placenta, amongst other things. It was quite a learning experience for Brian and I; I think our jaws were on the ground. We listened to peanut’s heartbeat, which was at about 140 bpm and Erin said that peanut is quite active in there. She referred us to Swedish First Hill to get our 18-20 week ultrasound, where we get to find out the sex of peanut! Swedish called to schedule the appointment and we promptly accepted the first available appointment, on Friday, September 23, the day I’m at 18 weeks. We’re so excited to find out the sex and start calling our little peanut a he or a she! As we may have mentioned in person to some of you, Brian had a dream that he met our baby girl and for some reason I’ve always seen our peanut as a boy, so it will be interesting to stop wondering and start narrowing down ideas on names, baby goods, etc. Today peanut is the size of an onion – photo to come!
