The Ultrasound Today

Tuesday, February 3rd, 2009

Everything went well and…

IT’S A BOY.

It’s a little surprising because I’m carrying high which usually means a girl.  But… these things are usually old wives’ tales and the only body part the little monster was interested in showing us were his male parts.  The rest of the time, he was either balled up being uncooperative or was playing with his feet and doing somersaults.  My co-workers were commenting (when I told them) that there’s a reason I’m so wiped out all the time — I have an active little baby!!!!

Dr. Fabulous (the high-risk doctor who I saw today) is a total character.  I was expecting a nice shirt and tie.  Instead, I got scrubs and cowboy boots.  :)   Very nice guy and he answered every question we had as well as reassuring us that the baby was just fine despite the bloodwork last week.  None of the markers for Down’s were present and while they do want to do a short ultrasound in 10 weeks to re-check a couple things, the heart issues were not there and the facial features are good.

And his name shall be called… Daniel James.
