I know that it has been a while since I have posted, and I am sorry for that, but we have been having such a good weekend. My friend, Kim, came to visit and we were so glad to have spent this time with her! Before work this morning, I took her to the airport for her to be able to return home to her husband who I am sure missed her terribly. My day has continued with going to see the doctor. I know that I am nervous about our new baby, but I don't think that I constantly worry about it. Sometimes it seems just to catch up with me and can be overwhelming. Today I was so nervous about hearing bad news from the doctor, my stomach was in knots and then, as we waited for him to come to our room, I just cried. The baby did have a good heartbeat. I was just so full of so many different emotions. I wanted to go right then to see the high risk doctor to see if everything was ok, but we have to wait. It is better to wait at least until the 17th week for the doctor to be sure he catches any abnormalities. But we did get to see a little picture of our baby, and it is obviously a boy! Noah almost began to dance around the room! I would love to have another little girl one day, but we are thankful that this experience will have many new aspects to it. The only problem is that we don't have the perfect name picked out, yet! We have many ideas but we just haven't found the right one for this special boy. Dr. C said everything looks good so far. Baby Boy Roberts is in the 36 percentile which means that he is a good size. This does comfort us a little until we are able to see the high risk doctor. We had no idea that we were going to find out what we were having today, so there has been great excitement in the family!
