So I had my first Ultrasound for baby number two yesterday. I felt like I had been waiting forever to have an ultrasound so I was really excited yesterday when it finally happened. They have changed the way that they do some of the screening and testing for your unborn babies....it used to be that you would usually have an ultrasound at your first appointment which for me was 4 weeks ago. But now instead of doing that they wait till you are closer to 12 weeks (which I am now) and do an ultrasound and a blood draw. This is some of the screening and testing for down syndrome, and other chromosomal abnormalities. Anyway when I laid down and she stuck the probe on my belly and the picture of our little baby popped up, I couldn't help but grin. It is so amazing how blessed we are to be able to be having another baby. The baby was squirming all over the place....she kept doing the infant jerks. You know like when you are holding a newborn and all the sudden the baby jerks and it's arms and legs shoot out like they are scared. That's what it kept doing. It was halarious. Anyway I am just making a prediction, but for some reason I feel like this one is going to be a little girl. We will see in 6 weeks!
