Because we are having a BOY!!!!!!!!!!!!
I just knew it. 🙂
The appointment with the high risk OB went really well. We got there at 2pm for a 2:30 appt, and were finally called back at almost 10 after 3. Oh, well!
The u/s tech asked if this was our first. (I love when they ask that, because I LOVE the reaction that, “Oh, no! This is our FIFTH” brings!) She immediately started the ultrasound and asked if we knew what we were having. I said that I KNEW we were having a boy, but it had yet to be confirmed. She scrolled down to the “parts” and we found THIS:
So, yeah.. there he is, in all his glory! 😉 None of my boys have ever been shy. Maybe that’s why they all still like to run around in their underwear all day.
Anyway, baby looks PERFECT. His cord is a strong, healthy 3 vessel cord! None of the worries that we had with Lucy and her 2 vessel cord. I did order the kick counter, so if we have a knot in the cord later in the pregnancy, we’ll have a better chance of finding out. But, as of right now, the blood is flowing through the cord just perfectly. I’m SO relieved.
Baby weighs about 8 ounces right now, so he’s still just a tiny peanut. But, he’s right on track where he should be. My weight loss hasn’t affected his growth at all.
She switched to a 3D/4D u/s at the end, and we got to see him in so much detail. He looks like a little alien, since he doesn’t have any fat on him now, but I still think he’s pretty cute!
After she was finished, the high risk OB came in to talk to us. He said that everything looks GREAT and we couldn’t ask for a more healthy baby. He has no concerns at all. He also said that if the pregnancy continues to go well, he may not have to see me again. Wouldn’t that be nice?! He did say the spotting was from me being too active. I need to learn when to take it easy. I’m working on that!
So, Praise the Lord! And thank you ALL for your prayers!! I can’t tell you how much I appreciate it!
Ok, here’s our precious little Baby Boo…..
Thanks for thinking of us today!!! We couldn’t have asked for better news!!
