Fetal Echo, Tuesday! =))
By dakotagurrl » Posted 40 weeks ago - 231 views - 5 comments

I have my fetal echo on Tuesday. Oddly enough, I'm excited! I'm excited to see the baby, even if only for a brief moment. My OB appt is the following Tuesday, so I will have results from the anomaly and echo, then. I still feel great about all of it!! I really do feel like everything is fine. <3

We still haven't told anyone lol! I've told some close friends, cuz it's hard not to. Braelyn doesn't know yet, either. She keeps asking about my belly and asking when I'm gonna put a baby in it, but she hasn't put two and two together, thankfully! I'm trying to hold off as long as possible, cuz she has absolutely no filter...with anything (she's 4!). The in-laws still don't know (bahahahaha!) which is awesome! I'm not looking forward to the stupid questions. I know MIL will have something to say about it, she always does! Wow, am I glad they live 3hrs away! She sent a pkg for Valentine's day, addressed to Braelyn and Carston (with the wrong last name!!!). I always open it before the kids see it, becuz I know what she's like with sending gifts. Glad I did! There's a box of pink chocolates and some lilac coloured cookies, with a sparkly rainbowy unicorn card addressed specifically to Braelyn. That was it. Why the fuck would u bother to address it to two kids when it's obviously meant for one?!...the girl! I love my kids! I don't, and never have, had a gender preference, or a favourite. They're my children...so to see someone pay more attention and show more love towards one of them, solely based on gender, pisses me off to no end. I get that it's Valentine's, and shit isn't gonna be blue....but I know for a fact that chocolates come in red. Would it have killed her to buy something red? Needless to say, neither kid got anything, nor did they know anything was sent. Fuck that. I'm so sick of this shit, that's not cool! She's always sending random little packages to Braelyn, yet can't tell u when Carston's bday is. She only remembers Kenny's bday cuz it's 3 days before Christmas. Great grandparent, eh?!

Anyways, that's over and done with. Onward and upward! I will post an update on Tuesday (maybe Wednesday) re: echo.

Hope ur all well! =))

I love this post! I too loved getting to see my babe during my pregnancy, it was always something I looked forward too! Good luck with your fetal echo tomorrow :) My MIL is so much like yours, but she only lives 5 minutes away from me....but she's to busy to be involved in our lives and I'm okay with that..lol!

Oh Sonata, I hear ya, loud and clear!!! My MIL has bought some tiny things for my kids over the years. I honest don't know how my husband survived childhood.
We had 2 FE's with Edie, just to watch the progression of her defect. This little guy is getting it as a precaution. I'm sure all will be fine tho. =))

Thanks, Mal! Yeah she's a real treat!

Good luck with the fetal echo. Hopefully baby cooperates! Your MIL does sound kind of terrible. Glad you don't put up with her sh!t.

God your MIL is such a B****. Who does that to kids—oh wait, My MIL hahahahaha On Valentine’s Day she sent us a picture of these little mini mouse figurines for my girls. Look like choking hazards. Guess we’ll get them whenever we see her, which is hopefully not anytime soon. She’s so obsessed with her daughter’s son our girls basically don’t exist. Except when she wants to barge into our apartment randomly and says I’m keeping the kids away from her. Give me some notice, lady. I hope all
Is well with the echo and scan. We had to get 3 echos with my first because she crossed her arms over her chest. Just hold onto that positive feeling. And tell MIL about the baby as late as possible lol
