It's A Boy!! (we think)

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!

Hey thanks so much for my comment on my page... you are sweet! But even more, thank you for the gift certificate to Ton's!!!! I'm so excited to eat there as it has been a long time. I would send you an official "thank you note" but I don't have your address. But really, your generosity touched me.
