We have out early scan for Thursday 9th August when wife will be 7+5

Though the doctor thinks we are a week further along than we are because wife has a longer cycle so was 3wks between last period and ovulation but we shouldn't count the 33rd week because it's normally 14days for a regular cycle and the 3rd week really won't make any difference to bub's development lol! We tried explaining it to her because we knew the exact date of conception but she didn't really get it so has put us a week ahead (clearly incorrect haha!)

You have to love knowing the EXACT date of conception! if we go by DW last period she would be a few days further along too!

Well we got our first scan today! There is only one in there, whew! Baby is measuring exactly where it should be. 6wks +1 day and ks snuggled in right in the center of her uterus. Got to see the heartbeat! Our infertility specialist, who will also be our OB, assured us that once you see a heartbeat the risk of miscarriage drops dramatically. We have a follow up scan on 8/22 to check her progress.

AFM, I saw my Dr. Today too. Will be getting a call tomorrow or Monday to schedule my pre-ops and surgery. I am trying to take only a week off for this surgery so I can save my annual leave time. I would like to take at least a month off when the baby gets here. I am pretty resilient when it comes to surgery, only took a week off when I had muscle repair done on my abdomin so I figure this should be cake. (well other than the whole cast/crutches/walking boot part of it.)

Oh wow yay for the scan! So pleased for you! 1 week to go until outs!

We tOld our parents last night! We sent them text messages so they could absorb it as probably quite unexpected for them! Everyone reacted so well!!!

We told some of our family via text too! Mostly my siblings so we did not have to decide who to tell first. It is so much nicer when they have a positive reaction!

How is the wife MS doing?

Hi girls!

Ok I have a giggle for you. There is this "baking soda gender prediction test" that I found on these boards. I told DW to pick up some baking soda on the way home so we could do this test just for fun. Supposedly if you take one tbsp of baking power and add urine, it will fizz if it is a boy but not if it is a girl. So I have DW pee in a cup (after all it has been a while since she peed on anything) and it start to fizz like the head on a soda. So this means boy right? Afterwards DW tells me to do it too and see what happens. So since turnabout is fair play I pee in my cup and add it to the baking soda. That thing fizzed so much it almost overflowed! Apparently I am having a manly man!

Thought I would share my humorous story with you girls.

How are you all doing? Glad to hear HP is feeling well enough to attempt to go back to work! Leah the temp is looking good so far!

I needed a good laugh this morning Kelley. Thanks for the giggles about your manly man pee. hahahah! I am having oral surgery today. I'm getting a tooth extracted and having a bone graft done in my jaw. Ooowy. Good thing is that DP is off with me today and we are going to have a lazy movie day together while I recover. I'm a girl that likes to be productive even while I am in surgery so I'm having the carpets in my house steam cleaned while I am getting my work done. We spent last night getting everything we could off of the carpepet so that the whole rooms could be done. right now my couch is in the kitchen and my TV is in the guest bathroom. LOL! I hope you ladies are having a fabulous day!
