Oh boy!

On Wednesday (at 19 weeks) we had our "big" ultrasound. And wouldn't you know it we got another dud u/s tech... He refused to tell us ANYTHING. He told us that we needed to see my midwife to get any results and that he only takes measurements. At least with Ruby, the tech (who was also a dud) told us everything we wanted to know except the gender. So this made us a little nervous that perhaps something was wrong.

I had also put a request in to my midwife who ordered the u/s that I wanted to know the gender and to have that put in the report.

So after a day of nail biting and nervous worrying, I spoke with my midwife yesterday who told me that there is a healthy little baby in my belly! Great news and I feel so relieved. And my suspicions (since day one) were confirmed that Junior is indeed... a boy! Very exciting.

The only minor glitch was that my placenta was laying low. Not a previa but low enough that I need to repeat the scan at 30 weeks to make sure it moves. My midwife said that there is a very good chance that it will move upward with my uterus. I am not overly concerned at this point in time.

Ruby, on the other hand... she was concerned when I told her she was having a brother...

That picture of Ruby is too funny.

I had a low placenta. Did they tell you how many cm it is currently from your cervix?

No info on the low placenta other than not to worry now. I will find out at my next appointment.

What a cute photo of Ruby!

I can't believe you're 19 weeks already. And a boy! That is very exciting!

I had a low-lying placenta with my twins, but it had moved far before delivery time (and I had a c/s so it didn't matter).

That's a great shot. And as a mama to a boy, it's awesome. Other than the being peed on... which isn't so awesome, but becomes like everything else with babies (ie. you roll with it).
