One More Mommy

Thoughts of a mom and her husband, son, daughter, pets, friends, job (or lack thereof), house, family, trying to be more ecologically aware...

Passing Time

We hit the 20 week point in our pregnancy (listen to me, with the 'we' crap) and had The Big Ultrasound. Esposo had predicted it would be a girl, and all signs point to that being true. We have to go in for a Level II ultrasound - The Bigger Ultrasound - to check some things out, so that should be able to 100% confirm rather than 98% confirm about us having a girl. I'm tempering my enthusiasm because every. single. person. has a story about how oh, they THOUGHT it was a girl...

We watched the video of Luke's ultrasound before we went to the doctor's office, and it was amazing to see how he had become a person from a gray-white image on the screen. To be sappy for a second, I don't see how someone can have kids and not see life as a miracle in itself. Sundry just wrote about her feelings on abortion after having a child, and I don't think I could express my thoughts as well as she does, other than to say 'Yeah!'.

We brought in the tape to get both Luke and C2's ultrasounds together, but unfortunately, they don't offer the taping of the ultrasound anymore. She's already getting second-child treatment! Therapy here she comes!

As I sit here this morning, it's almost as if I can hear the seconds of our lives ticking by... oh wait, I can, because the clock I bought for the office to replace the insane battery eating clock ticks INCREDIBLY LOUDLY. It's like living in the Tell Tale Heart, only I didn't kill anyone.
