Baby Blues

It's officially - Allah SWT willing we are having a boy! On Monday, I visited an obstetrics specialist to check the baby's gender. Husband, DD1 and DD2 came with me. We left about 1 hour prior to the appointment time but were stuck in a traffic jam for 3 hours due to a car accident on the freeway. All praise be to Allah SWT when I called to inform the staff about the delay, I was told that I could see the specialist when I get there instead of rescheduling the appointment. When we arrived at the clinic, it was quite crowded. We waited for another 2 hours before it was my turn. While Nurse Denise was checking the baby's body measurement, DD1 was announcing to her that she is going to have a brother. Well, She has been saying this for the past two months, so now it is official. Dr. Tabor came in to explain more details about the baby's measurement. All praise be to Allah SWT all things seem to be normal, with no major concerns about the baby's health. We were so relieved when we heard that. I'll have to say that this pregnancy is quite different from the previous ones. I crave more for meat and potato, and seem to be able to eat more garlic. Since DD1 and DD2 both look like husband, Allah SWT willing when the baby arrives in August, we'll get to see who he'll look like.
