Blue my intuition was 50% right I thought I was having 2 girls.
Oliver had eggs too and he was fine, they kept wanting me to send DH home with him so he wouldn't catch what Lucia had nevermind that he forgot how to take a bottle and still wakes up one million times a night to eat.
I guess we don't know it was the eggs for sure but 1 hour after dinner she started throwing up, so I'm betting it was that. i'm not willing to try them again for a while. I sure hope she outgrows it.
Thanks all on the input about genders. It is interesting for sure!
AFM - Well, I had my OB appt today and all went pretty well. I was telling her about the pain and crappy feelings i was having over the weekend and how it kinda felt like the gallbladder pain I had when i still had my gallbladder. Anyways, she said that sometimes even when you don't have your gallbladder you still can get stones or an issue w/ the duct that is left I guess and that pregnancy can increases the chances of this. So she wants me to go to see a GI Dr just to check it out and make sure all is okay. I was trying to get out of it, but she was kinda pushing me to just go and get it checked out. She also ordered like 13 vials for blood.... holy cow!!! So I'll try and make an appt, maybe I'll call tomorrow after our u/s is over. I did hear the heartbeat again w/ my own heartbeat kinda on top of it which was kinda weird sounding, but it made me feel good that she found it. What else.... oh, they scheduled my surgery for putting the stitch in which is going to be on Oct 3rd and we have to be there at 8:30am and they will put it in at 10:30 w/ a spinal block. Not too excited about that process, but whatever they have to do is fine by me. I think that is it for todays appt. Tomorrow my u/s appt is at 9:20 but i think DH and I are going to try and go at 9am b/c DH has a presentation to make at work at 10:30 and it takes a while for him to get to work from the u/s place. Fingers crossed and praying all goes well tomorrow.
Sorry about the AAM, but i'll try to catch up this weekend.
Oh, blue, stalking by to say I'm so excited for you! I've been waiting and hoping and praying for your ultrasound. I was very put out when your OB appointment was delayed... I wanted to hear good news! Glad everything is looking wonderful with the baby. I hope you don't turn out to have gallbladder problems.
YAH! YAH! YAH! I love the US pics and of course the pic of your baby's big sister ;o) What a great announcement!
By the way, my US tech actually told us our babies' sexes at 12 weeks. We kept track of her educated guess until the anatomy scan when they confirmed the sexes. So they are definitely able to tell with some reasonable accuracy. Our tech mentioned that it had to do with the slope of the genital area. Up is a boy, down is a girl, I believe she said.
I can't tell you how excited I am for you!
Hope, just thinking of you and hoping everything is ok. Vegan, can't wait to hear the news!
Everyone else, thinking of you all and hoping everything is going well!
Time to feed the babies
Renavoo - How was this past week of work for you? How are the babes adjusting? Are you back full time now or no?? Thanks!! I forgot to mention that we tried to talk our tech into looking at the gender while she was doing the u/s but she pretty much refused. She said "I don't want to be responsible and feel like I have to go to someone's house and repaint their pink wall blue b/c of what I said at this early stage". We told her that we understood that it's too early to be sure, but just wanted her to take a guess and she just would not even do it. Bummer. She said "I'll tell you this, you have a 50% chance that it's going to be a boy".... Thanks a lot!!!! I really don't think she would have been able to see anything b/c the bean had legs kinda together. He/She was awake at first and moving arms all around and then fell asleep like the 2nd pic above w/ hands over eyes. Too cute.
This is my baby boy! you can see his knee cap and is filling out nicely since last time I saw him. He was really active when we were at the doctors office. Just wanted to share this photo. This is at 18 wks and he measured 18wks and two days. Hopefully things continue this way! Still can't believe I am pregnant at all. For the longest time I only had these fantasies and dreams of what it would be like. Finding out the sex of the baby is really like a dream come true! This pregnancy has been really hard and challenging but these moments, and seeing a little baby move around thats mine is so precious and so amazing.
Hope - I just read back a little bit, and saw your post about your and your DH. I hope the counseling went well. As I have said, DH and I have gone to counseling, and it does good things for us. It doesn't work miracles, but it does get us taking and not just fighting, and puts us in a better place. I hope you work it out. You made it last time, so hopefully you have more tools and ideas to make it through whatever is going on this time. I will be thinking about you.
