11 Weeks 6 Days

Well today I had my 12 week appt... just shy of 12 weeks! The ultrasound looked great and Ian was able to come too! We saw the baby and heard it's heartbeat. They did the 1st trimester screening, and so far, no problems! When the ultrasound tech first zoomed in on the bean, her first comment was that the baby was saluting! I got a little chuckle out of that. We were hoping that the bean would be moving around... but no... apparently we are having a LAZY baby, b/c no matter how many times the tech poked and tried to bounce the baby, it just kept on sleeping... I told Ian these were early signs the baby was going to be taking after him! :) The tech also tried to check for gender eventhough she told us it was unlikely she'd be able to tell. And here are the results.....

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.

Hmmm... what's new?

Well, I haven't been posted anything new in awhile, and that's because nothing new has been going on! Still feeling good... not sick at all... just tired. I'm starting to show a teeny tiny bit... so I need to have Ian start taking pictures so we can see my different stages of roundness!

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...
