What a relief!

The ultrasound and amnio went really well yesterday. The baby is doing great and growing like crazy - actually measuring a little ahead at 17w. The fluid levels were just fine and all the right parts were accounted for. That is a HUGE weight off of my mind. Dr. B did the amnio. She remembered us from last time with Ellie. She was the one who did the last amnioinfusion right before PE hit. Actually I went right from seeing her to L&D with Ellie. She was happy to see us and took a lot of time to go over all of the ultrasound results to make sure we felt comfortable with what they saw. She aslo said that after seeing such good results from the ultrasound she would cut our chances of any problems showing up from the amnio in 1/2.

I'm going back in two weeks to have things checked out again - just to be safe. I saw a new Dr. that I hadn't seen before - but he completely understood that after what happened last time I would feel safer being seen more often during the next couple of months. There was some emrgency so I didn't get to see Dr. J - but it was OK.

And we found out yesterday that it really is a little boy!!! I was still kind of holding out hope for a little girl... but a boy is pretty good too! Now we have to start thinking of some boy names... i was already with a list of girl names.

Oooooh! Crying tears of joy for you! A little boy, how precious :) Doesn't it just suddenly seem so very real once you know the gender? Maybe not, it's that way for me though. Congratulations, friend. I'm glad everything's going well.

Congratulations! Having a boy is the best. Your husband will love having a little boy to get into gross things with. Plus, it gives you a different pregnancy experience. Can't wait to see ultrasound pictures of his pee-pee!
