[ Baby #2 Preview! ]

Yesterday I had an appointment for what they call a combined screening, which means that they do an ultrasound and take your blood to test for any birth defects or chromosomal disorders your baby might have. Everything with the baby looks great, so we're just waiting to hear back about the blood test, and we should hear back in about a week. So... here's the first picture of our new addition! I did get to see the baby on my first doctor visit last month, but they weren't able to give me a copy of our little "gummy bear"(that's totally what the baby looks like the first time you see them) because they used a hand-held ultrasound device which didn't print pictures. But now our baby really looks like a baby...YAY!

Anyway, I'm excited that we finally have some pictures of our baby! I also got a copy of the whole ultrasound on DVD and it's about 15 minutes long! They were obviously very thorough with the exam, but I'm not complaining because it's great to have so much footage! With Angie we only got a 2 second clip of her moving, so this is a treat! John wasn't able to go to the appointment with me because of work, so he was of course excited that there was so much to watch! It's fun to see John be just as excited with this baby as he was with Angie! Now we can hardly wait to find out if it's a boy or girl! We'll see!
What do you think we're having?

You should add a poll on the side of your blog! I am guessing a boy because by the picture it looks like the legs are stretched out strait. It's a long story, but boys tend to do that more and girls tend to cross their legs and/or tuck them. But isn't always right.

I agree, I was thinking of doing a poll! It's funny though because when I was seeing the ultrasound the baby's legs were crossed, well at least one under the other, you can see a little light smudge under the leg that is actually the foot! Interesting theory though! :)

I think he looks like John :) Saying that I think you're having a boy!

How far along are you now? I think it is a boy!

Amy said...

I believe I'm 13 weeks along as of tomorrow! Hopefully that will mean I'll be feeling better soon! So most everyone thinks it's a boy huh? We'll see! :)

Yeah for baby #2! I'm thinking it's boy. It's seems to be a trend in our families...girl followed by a boy. I can't believe everything with babies is so high-tech these days!

Alison said...

Its so a boy. I'm so excited for you!! To go along with Carol, is your due date after your birthday? My sis in law has a theory that is pretty accurate.
YAYAYAYAY for you guys!!

lucky you got so much time of your ultrasound! I think you'll have a boy! I'm excited to find out too!

Amy said...

To answer your question Alison, my due date is after my birthday. It's August 16th and my birthday is May 30th, so I'm really anxious to hear what this theory is!

Hey you guys! It's been forever! And being out of the loop lately as I have, I just now found out you were pregnant! Congrats! WE sold out house and moved and things have been too crazy, so I'm sorry I'm late! I'm so excited for you guys!

Yay!!! I'm excited for you!! Sounds like you guys are doing well up in Washington. We live is Sacramento, CA now so we aren't close to family but we like it here anyway. Congratulations again on the new addition!!
