Text 23 May 12 notes Level II Ultrasound Rewind

Man, I’m a BAD bloggie! I realized this weekend that I’d said I’d update on Friday about our level II scan and yet here we are on Monday. Some of you may have thought something wrong happened. I apologize.

The Level II scan went so well! He/she looks so beautiful especially in that profile position. My heart melts looking at his/her little nose. We got to see SO much—the kidneys, the brain, the four chambers of the heart, the stomach, EVERYTHING, including, yes, the genitals. When it came time to see the genitals the ultrasound tech had us close our eyes—not that we’d know what we were looking at anyway. So we are still in the dark about what this baby is though my gut is telling me boy. I will be SHOCKED if a little girl comes out but will be over the moon excited for whatever this baby is—I just want him or her healthy.

**UPDATE** Just got the call from the maternal fetal specialists: baby looks great! There’s a 1 in 10,000 chance for Down Syndrome and Trisomy 18. Nurse said that’s as good as it can possibly get. Thank you, God!

My sister and my 11-month-old niece flew in for the weekend and we had such a great time. We actually registered on Saturday and, man, registering is no joke! We were at BuyBuyBaby for FOUR hours! FOUR! Thank god my sister was there to tell me what I need and don’t need but even still it took FOREVER! How someone goes in there without someone guiding them is beyond me—chalk that up to reason 1,564,572 why I love having sisters :).

The baby has been a moving fool the past several says—he/she went from nothing to full throttle. On Saturday night I was so exhausted and was in bed and yet the nugget kept moving and it kinda make me a little sick to my stomach. I don’t know why—maybe all the moving made me feel car sick. But he/she finally settled down and I was able to pass out.

My glucose test is tomorrow—EEK!—and I am NERVOUS. Fingers crossed I pass this thing. I do not want to have gestational diabetes!!
