my close friends are like ‘girl SHUT UP about this forehead acne already. please.’ and i will. when it goes away 😯 . forreal though, it’s the only symptom that is different from my 1st pregnancy. so 2% of me believed a mini fit foodie le was on the way.
welp, yesterday was the day we got to confirm those (un)educated guesses. i have been saying i don’t care about the sex… i meant that. i still don’t care. i just can’t believe i said i would wait until i was in the delivery room to find out….HA. yeah, not doing that. this round anyway! i commend women/couples who actually go through with it though, seriously.
i wake up wanting real cheese, eggs, and toast. every morning. most days this is dinner too. so after a filling breakfast and some 19 week selfies,
i was so excited i threw on some heels and we hit the road to meet Sonny. i asked Chi for the last time that morning,’ so, sister or a brother? ‘ he responded with ‘no thank you mama. i don’t want a sister.’ aaaaallrightythen.
i couldn’t help but think, ‘i was just here with Chiso.’ 3 years really did pass by that fast. funny how my entire visit happened just like last time too. Sonny came to meet me (well us, this time) from work, and i even used the same changing room. on purpose. i remember having to chug 20 oz or more of water just before the procedure. and i barely made it to the bathroom afterwards. like last time.
heading down the long hallway to the US room.
it was even the same nurse – i recognized her right away and the way she began: ‘ok please let me find what i need to find first and then we’ll eventually get to the gender, your questions, and then i’ll show you your baby in detail.’ aaaaallrightlythen. #doyourthing. she reminded me that the procedure usually lasts an hour, but that’s cause sometimes the babies don’t cooperate or face in the best direction. luckily our little one gave us a clear shot of the goods 😉 . i think it’s hilarious to watch the baby’s mouth opening and closing on the screen- i’m like what the heck are you even saying 😆 !? it’s also cool to see all the punching and kicking and feel it happening in your belly simultaneously. just in complete awe of God, again.
he’ll fully understand soon enough.
and we’re done here! all cheeses after ‘meeting’ the 4th member of the Egwuatu family. so…..
this was the very first pic the nurse printed out for us…. POW. i knew instantly but Sonny still had the ‘wait, what is that?’ look on his face for the longest.
