HEALTHY BABY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WHOOOOOT WHOOOOOTT!!!!! Bee has decided she (he) wants to keep a little secret from us. We are thinking Bee is a boy because he/she had his/her hand between his/her legs the whole time playing with him/her self which is going to be a GREAT story to tell some day. But gender does not matter, it will be a surprise until birth! So until Bee is born she will be Bee and I will, for Bee's sake, try to use some he's in there so he doesn't get a complex. Here's to 18 more weeks of a secret.
The appointments went well. I was not really nervous until we were waiting in ultrasound and it was taking a long time. Each time one of the techs came out I was like crap that's a good one, thinking I was going to get stuck with the not so good ones and then they called my number. A lady I had not had before was who was up. I was very weary at first because I know the good ones and how much they rock but once we were in the room I could tell she was going to be an awesome tech! Let me just say she was the BEST tech ever! She actually read my background and we talked a lot about the boys but she knew right away to tell me there was a heartbeat and what it was at, that there was fluid, a bladder and as soon as she found the kidneys she told me (at which point I got slightly teary eyed) She did extensive measures because Bee was in such a good position to get great pictures of her brain and spine (I'm still going to refer to Bee as she because I have all along even though now we think it may be a boy) Anyways, she rocked because she showed me so much (more then she was suppose to) and gave us some great pictures. She was so thorough in showing us all the details and didn't mind showing Stephen a lot as well and answering some questions. We got to see Bee yawn and move around, move her hands and feet (of which I could feel) open her hands and close them, give us the thumbs up and so much more. We spent an hour in there and got to see so much of Bee which I was so thankful for. Truly, T. is the BEST tech ever! She is also the one who will be doing our Echo in a few weeks so we get to see her again and I'm sure she'll show us even more. It was just such a great experience and something I really needed.
We do need to have an echo, one because we asked and two because Bee was just not as cooperative to make a decent call. She was face down at first and then had her arm across her chest so we could not get a clear picture of Bee's heart. She did see what she needed too but couldn't get a picture so back to get an echo, but we were going to request one anyways.
Other then that Bee got an A+ for health and from here on in we will be going every two weeks with quick bedside ultrasounds to keep an eye on things and after 28 weeks we'll be getting detailed ultrasounds to check the cord and growth. All in all today was a great day, Bee is healthy and happy and that makes us ecstatic and she REALLY likes chocolate milk, I know her wiggle drink. I feel one heavy weight has been lifted off our shoulders and now it is a waiting game. But for right now Bee is healthy and happy and we are happy. Praying this continues and she really will be our keeper. Now for the good part, the pictures of our little little.
