I'll wager that there's at least one girl in there. You never know. There might be another one hiding in there.

There's just one!!! Lol

No names yet. We've seriously have only talked names once and a good portion of that were boy names. lol. I think I can finally get DH to sit down and talk soon though. But I doubt if we'll get to that for at least a couple of more weeks. My sister will be here in two days and a week later I'm driving her (and Aiden and I) home. I'll be gone for little over a week again. So I guess we'll figure something out in July sometime. lol

Okay, I'll be back with details and pictures in a bit. Gotta finish my menu and grocery list first!

I am so flip floppy on names this time. It wouldn't surprise me if this kid isn't named till November!

Okay how the appt went:

I'm up a whole 2 pounds from pre-pregnancy weight. Hey, I'm gaining weight finally! lol. If I keep this up I won't gain 40 lbs like I did with Aiden thankfully. My blood pressure was completely middle of the line normal. Ha ha. Everything else is fine.
Then we had an u/s with the tech. Wow, what a complete 180 from our big scan with Aiden! With Aiden we were with a military hospital (still in Vegas) and they wouldn't let DH go back till the last 10 minutes, I wasn't allowed to see the screen till those last 10 minutes too, and they took over an hour to get all the measurements. It was not a fun experience. This time the tech talked us through everything she was doing as we all watched the screen. She gave us medical terms and everything! She did the gender first because our little girl isn't shy in the least bit. She got a really good look in a couple of directions and said 99% sure it's a girl and usually she'll claim 97% lol. I could easily see the difference between Aiden's and this little girl's (beyond the whole no penis sticking out lol). We got a bunch of pictures. It was a very relaxing 30 minutes. Found out exactly where my placenta is. It's wrapping around towards the front just a bit - specifically the side that this kid likes to hang out in (matches the placenta noises I pick up on that side). It's a good distance away from my cervix too! Woo too! Oh, they did do a quick 2 minute vaginal u/s to check cervical length and to make sure I wasn't at risk for preterm labor due to cervix issues (definitely not as expected lol). I was able to see my c/s scar which was kinda neat I guess.
After the u/s the OB came in and did a quick 5 minute u/s himself and explained what he was looking for and double checking. I then was able to clean up and meet him in his office where he went over the risks of a repeat c/s and a VBAC. I was super impressed and satisfied with his spiel. The statistics he brought up were what I've been told and have found in articles and research (less than 1% and more towards .5-.7% for uterine rupture). He actually pointed out the difference between the chances of a true uterine rupture and just a small tear and what they implicates. He then went into repeat c/s risks (more info than I ever got before I went in for DS's c/s!) and what the risks are for a 3rd, 4th, and even 5th c/s are (I told him we'd probably want more kids after this one). He went into the practice's statistics for successful VBACs and what they've noticed leads to a successful VBAC (including reasons for prior c/s). It was a lot more positive than I expected honestly. I didn't learn anything new, which he say made his job easier b/c he didn't have to go into detail. Afterwards he gave me the "trial of labor" consent form for me to sign (some of this is for the hospital).
The best part? Before I left one of the midwives I've seen previously stopped me and talked to me for several minutes checking up on how things are going since she last saw me (I had my first appt with her and saw a different midwife last appt). WOW. Wish I could see her next time, but she'll be on vacation that week!
Time to pick out girly nursery decor! :party:


Sorry, it's a phone pic of a pic but it'll have to do b/c I'm soooo tired from today! A lot of driving and then I had to go grocery shopping!

Awesome appointment!! Sounds like your U/S was much more fun this time. Mine with T was similar to yours this time and I remember being so caught up in how cool it was that I almost forgot that we were finding out the sex. I could kiss your doctor. It makes me so happy that I won't have to be worried about how they'll treat you. I can't wait to see pics!!!

That appointment sounds great. I am glad your u/s went well, that sounds like ours was with Evan too. It was wonderful!! That's great that your doc is so understanding about your wishes for this birth. It sounds like you will get it the way you want it.
