Look, I realize we haven’t gotten off to the best start. There was the whole barf my brains out thing which is never a good way to start any relationship, then there were the boobs of fury that didn’t let me do much of anything but lie around and keep them as still as possible. We’ve moved into the “I miss pooping” part of the relationship but today Mozzi, today is what I need to talk to you about.
Today I took you and your sister in to see a friend about a doppler. We tried to find you 7 weeks ago to no avail, but given the large amounts of vomit emanating from me, I took it as a pretty good sign that you were holding strong. However now you’re just getting comfortable in your teenage weeks. There’s been times I’ve wondered if you’re around or if you jumped ship and sailed back to the big nursery in the sky, so today we sought you out.
DUDE, let me just say right now that during your sister’s first doppler reading her little heartbeat just hopped right out of those speakers loud and strong and true. You? Must have buried yourself behind my large intestine and covered yourself with a kidney. Those several minutes it took to find your little heartbeat may have well been an eternity. And that you only stuck around to be heard for approximately three nanoseconds? Leads me to believe I am either birthing bigfoot or a very stubborn child.
Then someone on twitter reminded me that I’ll be birthing a Taurus. Which is what I am. Ask your dad, stubborn ranks pretty high on my list of applicable adjectives. YAY! More stubborn in my life! And the fact that you’re so willing to let it show at 15 weeks in utero? I’m already saving pennies for all the things that will be invariably hulk-smashed during your teenage years (by both of us, let’s be honest.)
I know you’re in there Mozzi, and I am now even more convinced that you are a boy. And not to compare you to your sister, but she waved during her first ultrasound and she also came on her due date in less than three pushes…so if you’re also competitive like me, you’ve got some things to think about in there before our first doctor’s appointment next Friday.
Until next time,
