… the most nerve-wracking aspect of pregnancy is … the complete and utter inability to know what is going on in there and whether the baby is okay.
Vik and I are headed to the doctor bright and early Thursday morning (well, 9:30 AM, which is bright and early for me!) for our BIG ultrasound. This week simply cannot go by fast enough!
As excited as I to find out whether our Little Duckie is a Miss or a Master, I must say that I at this point I am even more excited to hopefully finally get a solid confirmation that s/he is healthy and developmentally on-track. After all, the most nerve-wracking aspect of pregnancy is not the morning sickness, the exhaustion, or the shockingly rapid expansion of one’s midsection, but rather the complete and utter inability to know what is going on in there and whether the baby is okay.
Maybe I am underestimating my neuroticism, but I really think that once I clear this hurdle (that is, once Duckie gets a gold star on the ultrasound), I will finally be able to relax and let myself believe that everything is going to be fine.
So anyway, stay tuned and be sure to check back in on Thursday night for the results of the BIG one!
