I go to the doctor a week from today and will get to hear the heartbeat for the first time. We saw it on the ultra sound 3 weeks ago, but didn't get to hear it just yet. So, we're excited to hear the heartbeat and compare the rate to Jordan's.
Obviously I'm going to be happy no matter the sex of the baby, but I think I sort of "want" another girl. The only reason is that I think it would be neat for Jordan to have a sister close to her age. I think that they could be really close. Not that she and a brother couldn't be, but you girls with sisters know what I'm talking about.
I think we've decided on a girl name. We've been really struggling with deciding on one we loved and didn't have "buts" about. If Baby Foshe is a girl, her name will most likely be Nora Kathryn. Isn't it pretty! I know Nora is an old name, but I am absolutely in love with it, plus it was BJ's grandmother's name and she was a special lady to lots of people. Kathryn is from BJ's mom's side and I think it rings nicely with Nora.
I had issues with Nora when we first started discussing it, not because of the name Nora, but because of the name Jordan. I don't think they go that well together, but I am over that. What I'm still sort of hung up on....and I know you're going to think I'm nutty, because everyone I've told this to does...BUT...
Jordan is a uni-sex name, but has been a boy name in the past. Jordan gets called a "he" lots of times when I'm on the phone making an appt or something...you know when people only know her name is Jordan and don't know her. So my concern is that Jordan will grow up and hate me because her sister got the "girly" name....
Crazy, right?! Tell me this is dumb and that Jordan won't care that her name is Jordan and her sister's is Nora. Someone please tell me that! lol.
I'm feeling much better. Almost no nausea at all--which is fabulous! If I let myself get too hungry I get nausea, but I try to avoid that! I'm not as tired, but of course I'm still tired!
I have finally gained a few pounds, only 3 though. I'm a big girl to begin with so I'm not supposed to gain as much weight as you skinny girls ;-) But my belly is obviously bigger, that's for sure.
This is what the baby looks like at 12 weeks. Crazy, uh?!
In other news, I did not get the job that I asked you all to pray about. I was really disappointed and cried for a minute when I found out, but I'm better now. I'm planning to get my non-traditional treaching license and hopefully be in a classroom by next August! So wish me luck!
Happy Hump-Day! Hope everyone's week is going great!!!
