First and Second Doctors Appointment

So last weekend I was having a little bit of bleeding and a lot of cramping. Needless to say I was a little worried. I called the doctor and they told me to come in first thing Monday morning. They did an ultrasound and the baby looked great and was measuring well so they weren't concerned and the bleeding had stopped. That is where the ultrasound picture I posted came from. Yesterday was my first official appointment. They did another ultrasound but since it looks almost the same I decided not to post it. The official due date is April 22. I will have a scheduled c-section since I had one last time. It can be very risky to have a vaginal delivery after you've had a c-section and since they are so close together it is a risk my doctor is not willing to take. It will probably be scheduled for around the 13th or 14th of April. We'll find out the sex the beginning of December and yes we kind of want a boy but we think a girl would be nice too since we already have all of the stuff. I'm thinking I may just take the last 9 weeks of school off since the delivery will be only a few days after we come back from spring break but we'll see what finances allow. Either way I will get at least 14 weeks at home with this baby and Izabel! I'm not feeling very well but so far I haven't missed any work and I've managed to keep all of my food down! It's harder this time because I can't just go home and take a nap after work like I did last year! I'm exhausted but it'll be worth it when we become a family of 4!!!
