Everything appears to be fine with the one (Sorry, Swistle) baby. Thank you so much for talking me down yesterday.

I love love love the technician at my OB's office because she explains what she's doing/looking for during the ultrasound. She said that everything looks good from her point of view, although the information will be correlated with blood work, etc.

Then she asked me if I was going to find out the gender.
Me: "Yes."
Tech:"Well, it's a little early right now."
Me: "Right. I figured."
Tech: "I'm just going to play around for a few minutes."
*She proceeds to look at the baby from all different angles, stopping when she gets a good between the legs shot.*
Tech: "It's early, but if I had to make a guess, I'd say it's a boy. See? Right there?"
Me: "Wow! Are you going to give me odds?"
Tech, laughing: "No. We'll know for sure in a few weeks."


So we'll see, but I can't help planning bedroom rearrangements and getting excited. I know Eli will be happy, too. "If the baby is a girl, it will belong to Katherine and Helen, but if it's a boy, it will belong to me."


  1. awww how exiting for eli! LOL ...

    I've been out of town for awhile, so I missed the part where you had a scare? Sorry you had one. Isn't that soooo worrisome?

    Glad that you and the baby are alright though.

  2. Not really a scare, just nervous about the extra testing I have to have since I'm an elderly mother. :)

  3. I had to laugh as to whose baby this would be. A friend on mine actually asked her mom where their baby was a few months ago after a series of friends had babies - and she is 8!

    Glad everything went well. One advantage of being "elderly" is you do get another set of "baby" pictures.

  4. Aww... I hope Eli gets his baby.

  5. Awww... wouldn't it be awesome to have two girls and two boys? Glad everything looks good!

  6. I knew everything would be great!!! I was thinking about you yesterday. Squeeee!

  7. Glad all is well. I hope he gets his little brother - too sweet.

  8. OMG Eli's quote is about the cutest thing I ever heard!!! Crossing my fingers for a little brother! ;)

  9. Oh, I'm so glad everything looks okay, I am not even sorry (s)he's not twins!

  10. Yay!! Glad everything went well.

    And I was a fourth baby to an "advanced maternal age" mama. We sometimes turn out okay ;)

  11. Awwww! That had to be the tiniest photo of boy parts ever! Congrats so much, and I'm glad you had such a great tech! :)

  12. Oh, Eli! What a doll!

    Now--take a deep, cleansing breath until the next worrisome test/ultrasound/bloodwork thingy!

  13. I'm glad all is going well. :D

  14. how exciting. and im so glad everything looks good so far. :)
