I am 14 weeks today. I had my perinatologist apointment this morning and I'm leaving out of town today so I figured I better post an update before I leave to the land of no communication :). They grilled me about my diabetes and all my numbers and made me cry. All I can do is swear that I am doing my very best and everything I know to do to be as perfect as possible. He said the baby looked great. He spent a very very long time poking and pushing around with that ultrasound thing. I think he had to study the heart and brain and spinal cord a lot. The baby was definitely moving around a lot. When the doctor would shake and push by stomach hard the baby looked like it would punch back. Who knows what I was really seeing? But he said the baby looks great and he was 95% sure it was a boy. Most people don't find out the sex this early but this ultrasound was different than the regular ones I have had. It was much closer and a lot more clear. It's funny because most of (maybe all) of my friends have all said they think I am having a boy. I have never really felt one way or another. I did say the other day it was probably a boy because I had a whole list of girl names that I liked and didn't have any names on my boy list. He said we should be 100% sure by the next appointment in 4 weeks. So most of the appointment was spent watching the little one just kick around in there. Before I left I had to do some finger stick thing for some other test. But I guess that's about it. Thank you for your prayers. We have a long way to go but I believe that this baby and myself are definately in God's hands and I don't think we could be safer anywhere else.
I am off to Austin today to visit some friends and then home to Rotan and Knox City for a few days. I am really looking forward to spending time with my niece and nephew and of course I can't wait to see my Odis - since he went home with my mom a week ago. I just know he misses me horribly :). Then I'm going to spend the last part of my "vacation" in Cedar Hill visiting all my peeps. But most importantly :), I get to get my hair done while I'm in Cedar Hill. I definitely need it!! Then back to H town for more doctors appointments and house hunting.
Hope everyone's having a Happy Summer!
