13w5d, I guess.

Friday, October 31, 2008

Since I was bumped up 4 days, my weekly change-over occurs on Sunday now . . . and well, after the gluttony that is Saturday in my world, I just don't want to be taking my picture Sunday morning . . . so I think I'm going to continue to just keep taking pics on Thursdsay. Okay? Okay.
So, I’m definitely noticing some thickening and that’s all well and good, as the baby is now about 3 inches and weighing almost an ounce! My uterus is also apparently right in between the size of an orange and a grapefruit . . . so I’m okay with the thickening lol.

This morning we did the deed of telling two of our supervisors {as a refresher, Tony and I work together for a small firm, so we are in a unique situation}. Based on the boss who I report to’s reaction to one of our architects announcing his wife’s pregnancy, I expected to be a little hurt by his reaction. I made sure that we announced when my other nice boss was in office, so that his excitement would balance out for the other’s expected reaction . . . but it wasn’t necessary, they both congratulated us quickly and seem to be very excited! We’re waiting to announce to the rest of the company at our staff meeting on Monday.

We also met with our doctor today for the first time and both Tony and I came away feeling very comfortable with her answers of my list of questions. Oh yes, I was that girl with a list, but I have to think upwards of 50% of first timers do have a list, so I wasn’t that embarrassed. She quickly answered that she personally delivers 80% of her patient’s babies, which is really high according to averages that I have read, so that was great to hear . .. on the flip side, she also said that her rate of c-sections is 18%, which is higher than the 16% max I’ve heard elsewhere. So . . . I guess that’s something to think about.

When I get home I’ll scan in the ultrasound picture we have of baby bless at 13w2d . . . and I hate to disappoint 36% of those who voted, but the ultrasound tech showed us the convincing evidence that baby bless is a boy! {Today our doctor mentioned that he has never been wrong!} We obviously are grounded enough to realize that even at 20w the genders can be falsely told, so we will not be upset if this were to change . . . but can’t help but be excited by the news either!

Look at the cute lil nose and lips!

I love updates on baby bless' growth! And so exciting to hear that the ultrasound tech thinks baby bless is a boy and he has never been wrong. Can't wait to see the ultrasound pictures.

Nothing wrong with being the girl with a list. I would be too, especially since this your first baby. You have a right to be comfortable with your doctor and the delivery process.

Good to hear about both your bosses excitement. Sounds like you have a good start to your weekend!

I knew it was a boy!! How exciting!

And you may see a "thickening" but I sure don't - you still look itty bitty. You're going to be one of those cute skinny pregnant girls with the basketball belly.

A boy!!! That is fantastic news!

Good to hear that your bosses were excited and that your appt. went well. I don't think there's anything wrong with asking a lot of questions--you just want to be as informed as possible!

YAY a boy! I didn't vote (I hate to be wrong) but I am so glad you are providing us the answer! :)

Nothing wrong with a list either, it's better to know that to wonder!

Wow Leah 13 weeks already!! With our move I've been away from the computer and a little out of touch. When I had my 1st I had the list too, it was a long one!! :D

Kristy said...

Yay for a boy! I don't think I voted (shame on me) but I definitely had a feeling for blue! We hope our first to be a boy-- keep us updated on names!

Enjoy the updates! :)

Megan said...

Yay! Congrats... did she give you an idea of how "for sure" she was that it was a boy? Like 90% or 100%? I was just curious. Our ultrasound tech said she was so positive that she'd come over and paint the walls blue if we wanted her to. Haha. :)
