Mrs.green - lol yeah I am being super confusing. I have a serious addiction to peeing on sticks. Hahaha I'm not ttc though I'm more just trying to see if my cycles are going back to normal or not. I hate that they are still so random. Before my daughter I had a pretty clear pattern. I made an appointment for next month and I seriously might just ask for birthcontrol to just go back to being regular. I'm just really nervous about weight gain.

IRYM - a crappy machine vs a good machine makes all the difference! If they are doing vaginal ultrasounds and still not being able to measure accurately that's not you that's their machine. i would want a better scan, clearly your current doctors office is not set up for early fetal scans. Which is crazy frustrating!!!

Afm - I went to a drop in yoga class yesterday and the gym. I really need to work on balance haha that's for sure! My nutrition place wants me to go to a conference with them this Saturday and enter my before and after pictures in a weight loss comparison event. I think I'm gonna pass though. I'm not really comfortable with lots of random people seeing my progress photos lol. I feel bad for turning them down though, and passing up on 600+$ if I was to win over all.

Well guys, I was able to get an ultrasound today at the last minute from the radiology dept. It's good news! My little bean is doing well, measuring exactly 9w1d and a heart rate of 176bpm. I'm so relieved!

We could see arms and legs, eye buds, and the little bean wiggled while we were warching, too.

Fantastic news irym! I'm so glad they could get you seen on a good machine and everything looks great! Sounds like the doctor's office needs to get rid of that machine!

I agree, what's the point of having an ultrasound machine in the exam room if it can't accurately date or even VIEW a fetus? They don't even do gender scans in the OB office, you have to go to the specialty radiology dept for that, too!

They've scheduled mine at around 20 weeks, for December 1st. The radiology dept is so overbooked, it takes months to get in unless you're an emergency case.

If the OB dept would upgrade it's machines, I bet they could take all kinds of stress off of the radiology dept. But you know they're not going to spend that kind of money. This whole company is ridiculous.

Whoa, that's right around the corner! How exciting!

My mom insists on knowing the gender before we do, so she can throw DH and me a gender reveal party. She didn't get to do one with her other 5 grandchildren, so it looks like I'm the lucky one!

Are you going to have a gender reveal party?

Haha, well that is exciting she can spoil you guys!

We aren't doing anything special. We are doing family pics Sept 30th so we are gonna have DS open a box with pink or blue balloons and record it. If we can get him to say baby brother or baby sister that would be so cute.

Have you asked him what his guess is for the gender? Is he excited for a sibling? I've seen kids cry when the baby's gender isn't what they hoped for. But I always think in those instances, it's because the parents didn't explain very well. Like maybe the kids thought they'd get to choose the gender rather than it being random chance.

He has told us it's a baby sister from the start. He refused to even say boy names. But now he will say baby brother if prompted. I don't think he understands really. But we've been reading books abo It bringing home baby and he seems excited when ever he sees a baby. Although he definatley has been wanting to be the baby more. Which part of me enjoys the extra cuddles but then part of me worries it's gonna be harder to transition. But if I've learned anything these last 3 years is nearly all behaviors are just a phase.

Aww. Well maybe he's right! They say your kids know before you do!

I don't have any kids to base my experience off of, though, so what do I know?

What are you hoping for?
