On the Upswing

I have been scared to blog about this - afraid of jinxing my good fortune. But this week has been much better in the sickness department. After a bout with dehydration last week I seem to have bounced back and feel better than I have in a long time. I am still sick in the mornings and evenings but I feel like it might be subsiding some and I might even be gaining some more of my old energy back. I am crossing my fingers/hoping/wishing/praying that this pregnancy is rounding a corner and I will be back to my old self soon.

We had an ultrasound today to check for genetic birth defects. Everything looked perfect! We are so thankful for the tiny being that is being formed in God's image inside of me.

I told the ultrasound tech if she could tell the sex to feel free to share it with us. She said she can usually tell. We were so anxious to hear her guess. She initially said she thought it was a girl. And then at the end she acted surprised and said she thought it might be a boy. This early in the pregnancy they look for a straight line (girl) or a diagonal line (boy). The line kept changing. So she said the doctor would be able to tell. But the baby kept crossing its legs and he couldn’t see. I was so bummed! But it was so nice to see it and know that it is healthy. The tech and the doctor both agreed that it is a wiggly worm! It was stretching and moving around like crazy. Fun stuff!

I have new ultrasounds pictures that I will post later.

Glad you are feeling better... It's all because of the stuff I brought you last week! It's a girl... I'm sure!
