Anatomy Scan

Gender reveal drum roll please....

The Nugget's 18 week profile shot!

The 12 week gender prediction at the NT Scan (and my acupuncturist's reading of my pulse) was right!

It's a boy!

The anatomy scan went perfectly today. The Nugget is looking 100% healthy and was wiggling for us the whole time. He (oh my God, I said HE!) even cooperated so we could look at his junk. Thanks Son!

The only thing we are keeping an eye on is my placenta. Apparently it's a tad low. Not previa, but low. Upside? I get another ultrasound at 28 weeks to make sure it moves up, which they think it will. Score for another peek at MY SON! (Ok, I'll stop now).

Today's appointment with the OB went better than the last too. Yes, she took me an hour late (she had to deliver a baby that morning) but she was more direct and I left feeling good. Having KG there was a good idea too - keeping me calm as the wait started to make me more and more annoyed.

In other news, life is busy. I'm tutoring 3 days a week, working on 2 curriculum projects, and preparing for my sister to arrive for a visit this weekend. We also managed to finish the registry and have started to think about starting to clear out our junk from the room that will become the nursery.

All in all, chugging along.

I can't believe I'll be back in my classroom in 3 weeks. Where did the summer go?

  7. Yay! Glad he was cooperating!!!

    (My boy's placenta was partial previa and it moved out of the way - apparently this happens all the time.)

  11. Awwwwww!!!! It's so weird, but I was shopping for newborn baby clothes a couple of days ago for another friend who just had a boy, and I had a strong urge to buy you something "boy", but then stopped myself because I didn't know what you were having yet. Mazel Tov!!!

  15. YAY! A Boy! Two things. I totally think I am having a boy too even though I have no proof and my placenta is also low. I wasn't happy about that, but it means more u/s for me. Congratualtions and that picture is just adorable.
