Today I had my first doctor's appointment. (I know. We sure did tell the whole world pretty quickly. There was a little miscommunication about who we were telling and when, so everyone got to know.) I am 6 weeks today. Because it was so early, the u/s tech said that we might not be able to see anything and that was fine; don't be upset if there isn't anything to see. Well you could see a tiny speck of a baby. She said it's about 2 millimeters long. When I held my breath, she could see the heartbeat. So that was good. I go back to the doctor at the end of the month. Because this ultrasound was so early, we get to do another one then, so that's super exciting.
I saw the doctor next and he said everything looks fine. I'm due April 29th. Hopefully it will work out so that Josh and I are home together for a couple of weeks before I go back to work. Josh will keep the baby for the summer when I go back to work. Lily will start school and the baby will start daycare at the same time.
We are all super excited about a new little Stone. Josh and I are very happy. Lily asks me how big the baby is almost everyday and tells me she loves being a big sister. Because we have 4 bedrooms, Lily has her bedroom and her toyroom. I asked her if she wants to move into her toy room or move the toys to the bedroom. She came up with the solution: the baby can just sleep in her room. She showed me where we could put the bed and everything. When the baby cries, she'll just come get me. What a great solution! She's so smart.
