We finally had our first real appointment today! While the wait is hard, I know by now it's for the best.
Of course it took forever to get to the ultrasound. We went, had to wait a while, got my vitals, had to wait more, then they wanted to do an exam since I hadn't had one since just postpartum with the twins. My anxiety level was through the roof, as I know Patrick's was too-but it was pretty clear right away when she started that we were "only" blessed with one little bean this time (yay!) even though I definitely made her double check :) (And of course we'd be thrilled if we had two again-I just would never wish for another high-risk pregnancy AND it would mean that we would HAVE to sell our house-about a month before my due date so we wouldn't be penalized-and would have to upgrade to a different van. So we're thrilled that this will be "easy" this time-I can't wait to remember what it's like to only have to meet the needs of one baby at a time!)
We told Maya when we got home and she was completely underwhelmed. I should've known, as it was kind of a bad time to begin with, and she tends to react really strangely to things we think she'd be thrilled about. Now she's excited and keeps putting her hand on my belly asking if she can feel the baby kicking yet which is sweet.
Here we go now! We'll slowly tell family over the next week or so and then announce it (and publish these posts) in a week and a half or so. It's definitely going to be interesting to see the general reaction!
