Aidan's 1st Video!
Wednesday, December 24, 2008
Ian will be working tonight (someone's got to pay for the car), but then he has Christmas off. I'll visit with friends for the evening and then tomorrow I'll cook us a nice Ham dinner for Christmas (thanks Mom!) and we'll spend a quiet day at home!In baby news, I'm finally starting to show a bit more, so I've uploaded some new pictures for all of you! I'm feeling good, and will be anxious to get my appt at the perinatologist over and done with on Monday.
Have a very merry Christmas everyone!!

Well today I had my 20 week ultrasound and appointment. Overall it went well and we got tons of pics. Most of the,m are pretty blurry though, so I just chose a couple to share. Aidan is measuring great, all of his organs are developing as they should be. We got information on all kinds of fun stuff like breast feeding, pacifiers, etc. Gotta love the Dr we saw today, she's awesome and just tells it like it is (or at least how she sees it! But at least we have similar views!)
However they did discover that the umbical cord which is normally three vessels is only two. Our Dr explained that because Aidan's development is great and right on where it should be, at this point it shouldn't be a worry. They will closely monitor his growth (which means lots more ultrasounds), because I guess that can be affected by a two vessel umbilical cord. In the meantime they are referring me to a perinatal specialist where they will do some more in depth ultrasounds to see what's going on and to confirm that there aren't any indicators that there are more serious issues or complications. So keep your fingers crossed for our little boy! Our appt with the perinatologist is December 29th, so I'll post more once we have some more info then.
All that being said, he was a very active little boy today. The tech had a hard time getting shots of him because he was being such a wiggle worm. So according to the Dr that was a really good thing! :)

From the top looking down..
What a cooperative baby! Giving us all these great shots!! :)
We have some exciting news! We are so happy to announce that we are having a baby boy! If you look a the pictures above you can definitely see that he has a hot dog!! So how did all of this come about you ask? Well I was talking to my friend, Ann, about a place that will do gender ultrasounds for only $50. So I looked them up on the internet and decided to give them a call this morning. Ifigured that if they could get me in today it was meant to be, and if not, then we'd just wait until the appt on the 18th. Well low and behold, they got me in at 1:30 this afternoon. Ian was working but was able to get away for a few minutes. She was able to tell right away that it was a boy and we couldn't be more pleased than to finally put a name to our "Lil Bean"! And we admit it, we are totally thrilled about having a boy!!! I still have my ultrasound and appt on the 18th of December, so we'll have more pictures to upload then! Hopefully, Aidan will be cooperative and we can get some good profile shots of him! Although Ian says no more "porno" shots of the baby!!

Hard to believe my kiddos at school still haven't guessed that I'm pregnant! They just think I'm getting chubby! Oh, and ignore my head being cut off, I have established that my husband is not ever going to be a professional photographer!

Well I have my 16 week appt this week on Friday and I'll find out when our gender U/S is going to happen. So hopefully it will be sometime in the next two weeks and we'll finally have an answer to that intriguing question... are you a baby girl or a baby boy hiding away in there?!

The bean is either a girl, or it was too early to tell if it is boy. So basically... it could still go either way! So I'm gonna say 50% chance it's a girl and 50% chance it's a boy! Ha Ha! All that being said, the tech said if she had to call it today, she'd say it was a girl... but no guarantee... So we'll just have to see. Ian asked her if she thought it was just cold "in there" and if that's why we couldn't tell. I gotta hand it to him, he comes up with some good ones every now and then! I have another ultrasound at 18-20 weeks, so we'll know for certain hopefully in 6 to 8 weeks.

Speaking of which I have a funny story to share... Last week at school I was talking to two of my rather brilliant girls whom I normally adore. And one of them asked if I had been using my Wii Fit lately (we were looking at the Scholastic Click catalogue to see what Wii games they had). So my response to that question was to ask a question of my own... "Does it look like I have been using my Wii Fit?" To which my other student responded, "Well, not really." At this point the student who asked the question reached out and poked my belly and said "Nope... not using it." At this point I called them both brats and sent them on their way to PE (which they had been stalling going to anyway). So it would seem the kiddos have noticed that the belly is getting rounder too! We'll see how long before they put 2 and 2 together. Anyway, that's my funny story.
Well I have my 12 week appt and ultrasound this week... so I am sure I'll have more to share on Thursday. We're just hoping Ian can get off work on time so he can go with. I got the strangest look from him the other day when I told him the baby was about an inch and a half and showed him how big it is... I think he's rather perplexed by the whole situation and he made some comment to the effect of me and the baby being aliens... Seriously though, he is excited and wants to see the ultrasound and hear the heartbeat. Maybe just maybe they'll be able to tell the gender too! I know, not likely, but one can hope!! Until Thursday...

I am exactly 8 weeks today and here are our first pictures of the baby! Everything is going well and the baby's heartbeat was fine at 142 beats per minute. Dr said everything looked good and healthy! Hearing the heartbeat today was so awesome!! And seeing it beating was even cooler! Just this neat little flickering movement. They did adjust my due date back... so I am exactly 8 weeks today.
