Well, the doctor came in, smiling. I just had the tests done to reveal our baby's gender. Hunter is sitting next to me, holding my hand. He promised he'd go with me, and true to his promise, there he was. We had met up before work, Hunter and I. It was part of our plan to keep our relationship going and not let it get in the way of our work.
"How are you this morning, Dee?" Hunter had asked. He then gave me a hug. I smiled, and said, "Better." Waiting for the ultrasound, we were anxious. It was the first glimpse of our child for Hunter.
We had yet to tell Charlie I was pregnant, I wanted to hold off just a little while longer so this was the only way we could spend time together without anyone noticing. But I did tell my mother and Hunter told his family. They were just pleased that Hunter was maybe finally going to settle down...and my mother was ecstatic that she was going to be a grandmother. Hunter watched in amazement as our baby moved around on the ultrasound.
"Beautiful." He squeezed my hand gently. The technician smiled. Right as he said that, the doctor came in, beaming.
"Well, Dee…you're fine, and the baby is healthy. It's a girl, congratulations."
Hunter turned to me and smiled.
