School Days

I told my class yesterday about being pregnant. They seemed to have a good understanding of what I was talking about. I'm sure many of them have had their mom pregnant with a younger sibling. They immediately wanted to know if it was a boy or a girl. One boy asked me, "Since you're a girl, doesn't that mean your baby is a girl?" A little girl asked if I could please have a girl and name it Elizabeth. The student herself is not named Elisabeth, so I'm not sure why she wanted that for me! They wanted to feel my stomach, and I explained that there wasn't really anything to feel for a while, but I told them that the baby could hear them (Lord, forgive me my lie!). Several of them have come up to me since them and talked to the baby. "Hola, bebe! Te quiero mucho." So cute!!

On the agenda for this week: choose a medical professional to do our prenatal care, etc. I don't have a clue how to make this decision!

  3. Israel and I are so happy for you! Having done both, it is definitely easier to be prego during the winter. :) If you need to start prenatal care, you can go to your regular Gyno for your first appt. They will confirm the pregnancy "for the record" and prescribe your prenatal vitamins. If you want to switch docs, then you have a full month between appts to research. Have fun during this awesome, but crazy journey!
