Back from the U/S

Good news and pretty crappy news.

Good news, it's a BOY! Guess the boy streak continues Smile He is healthy and perfect in every way. He certainly didn't want to show his boy bits because he kept his knees to his chin and pushed the u/s wand with his foot multiple times. But the tech saw his 'turtle' before she made the announcement and then gave us a work around image that shows the goods. His hands were always by his face, too. I couldn't be happier. Not a single bit of 'shucks' came into play. He is perfect and I'm so happy! It's funny because DD asked why the doctor turned her baby into a boy.

Bad news...they found a large mass on my ovary (7 inches) and the stupid doctor said the 'C' word. He has me scheduled for surgery next Wednesday to remove the mass. They will biopsy it and I'll be in the hospital for a while. My first question was is this going to affect the baby. He said he didn't see that it would affect him, but they will have a special surgeon on stand-by in case something goes wrong.

So now I suppose I'm supposed to enjoy my Thanksgiving and try to keep my mind off of this mess until next week. Ha, I'm not sure that will happen.

Oh man, I will be keeping you and baby in my prayers. That is scary, and I know I would be pretty stressed too. There's nothing more you can do at this point though so pray (if you are the praying type) and try to enjoy your holidays. (((BIG HUGS)))

Congrats on a healthy baby boy!!!

Oh wow! First off, congrats on the boy! I'm so sorry you're going to have to have surgery though-- yikes. I hope you can still manage to enjoy Thanksgiving without it being on your mind too much. Please keep us posted on any updates.

Congrats on the boy. You'll see they are just as much fun as girls Biggrin

As for the surgery, just try not to stress. I know, easier said than done. Enjoy the holidays and will be thinking that everything is a-ok!

Congrats on your perfect and healthy baby boy!! That's awesome. It's hard to be disappointed when the baby is healthy.

I'm so sorry to hear about the mass on you ovary though. Hopefully, you can keep your mind off of it throughout Thanksgiving. I will pray that your sugery goes well next week and that your son is unaffected AND that the biopsy shows the mass to be nothing but a benign growth. KUP for sure!

Thinking of you all. That's totally not what you want to hear at an ultrasound, especially right before the holidays. I hope everything goes smoothly.
