My next ultrasound will be in Pittsburgh at West Penn Hospital. They are sending me for a Level II ultrasound. I have to admit it worried me as to why they're chosing to send me for the level II instead of just another reg u/s. I did talk to the nurse about it and she read the doctors orders to me and it seems as though its just to get a clearer view of things they couldn't see too well in the last ultrasound. So I am going to try not to worry and just be thankful that I'm going to be able to see my baby again. I've been feeling the baby moving a lot! He is active a lot in the mornings and evenings. I feel him on the inside, I can feel him through my stomach if I place my hand on it while he is real active, and I can sometimes even see my stomach moving around.

I will be going for another ultrasound in 3-4 weeks because they did not get a good picture of the babies arm or spine on the last ultrasound. Its another chance to see my baby boy, so I'm not complaining! I got my quad screen results back today, all negative. Less then 1 in 5000 chance of a major birth defect. Thank God! My next appointment is on June 3rd with Laurie. I will be scheduling my repeat anatomy scan then. Woohoo! I hope they print me out more pics of my baby!

Its a BOY!!!

I had such a good day today. A lot of good things happened, the best being seeing my baby boy! He cooperated very well so we were able to get a definate answer on the gender. It is a BOY! Check out the pics! It was so amazing seeing him moving around on the screen. At first he had his legs tucked up and he was holding his heel. It was so cute! So the tech just did some of the measurements and then checked his position again. This time he had his legs opened up and we could clearly see that it was a boy. He was movin all over the place and kept showin off! At the end he was sucking his thumb. I am measuring EXACTLY (to the very day) as my due date, so everything is lookin good! I'm so ready to go shopping and get lot of adorable lil boy things! I have a name picked out for him, and I'm pretty certain things aren't gonna change with that. Although, I don't plan to tell many people the name. The ultrasound tech was very nice and informative. I was very thankful for that!

Tomorrow I have an ultrasound. I should be finding out Boy or Girl! I really hope the baby cooperates and shows us what he/she is! I'm really excited! I know its gonna be an amazing experience b'cuz the last(and only) time i've seen the lil bugger he/she was just a small dot on the screen.

Today was my 19wk appointment. Everything went good! I got to hear the babies heartbeat, which was 160bpm. She said my uterus is growing right should be(its about a finger width below my belly button now) My anatomy scan is Friday. I CANNOT WAIT!!Today I'm really stuck in baby-mode. I seen the cutest lil newborn boy at the docs office today. I forgot how tiny they are. Those cute lil hands awwww. I really can't wait to meet my lil one. Today its like my mind can only think baby baby baby. All i can research online is babies, all i've been talking to my friends/fam about is the baby. I can't wait to hold it, to touch its soft skin, to smell it. I cried just thinking of the moment i'll first hold it in my arms. I'm really obsessed. It must be the hormones.

Toasting Marshmallows in the oven is fun. Just turn the oven on broil, stick one on a long knife and hold it in there. Yummmm
