Goodbye Izzy and Pregnancy Update
I’ve learned (as does everyone at some point) that the right thing to do, the best thing, is also the most painful. We said goodbye to our Izzy this afternoon. I had put a sign up at work and a sweet family who loves dachshunds contacted me to adopt her. They are so excited about having her in their family, and have been great about giving us as much time as we needed to keep her and say goodbye. I felt like it was best just to rip the bandaid and let her go, but it was so hard. That little toot had a special place in both my and Ryan’s heart, and many tears have been shed.
I also had a doctors appointment this morning- all is good! I had an ultrasound, which I wasn’t expecting. Baby is head down (yay!) and all his/her limbs and bottom are all scrunched up on the left side of my belly. I was measuring on the small side- UGH- but my doctor said my size was “acceptable” especially considering the ball my baby is in. I know this sounds weird, but I get really jealous of “huge” pregnant bellies, even though I know that would be much more uncomfortable that way. We are doing a 3D ultrasound just for fun on Saturday- looking forward to seeing what this baby looks like!
