Are you having a boy?

Today I had a check-up with my NP since my OB was on vacation and she asked me something that got me a little nervous.

She's been a NP for about 30 years in her practice and after listening to the baby's heartbeat, she asked me, "Oh, are you having a boy?" Of course I told her no, but she suggested that during the next visit I ask Dr. Gabbay to make sure. She said she's been wrong before but just wanted me to double check. To add to this....I kinda gained a little more than I should have for a 4 week period and she definitely noticed. I was told to avoid takeout, sodium, and all those foods that I know are bad for me. Back to salads and chicken breast!!!

After the visit, Francis went to get an estimate on the door/sideview mirror of his car while I spent some time with my parents and my aunt visiting from Virginia. Thankfully my Tita Belen made me feel a little better by telling me that I look good pregnant (definitely a comment I took happily after the NP telling me I gained too much weight).
