Its a "normal" baby boy!

Spine up top, belly down, face to the left, leg to the right.

Skull/face, and hand on top right

E and I kept seeing the "turtle" pop up while the technician was measuring the baby's legs. I said "is that what I think it is?" She said "what do you think it is?". I said "a penis." She replied "yep".

There it is. :)



Praise God that everything was normal! The baby was measuring, overall, a day behind my December 31st due date- not uncommon for my babies. Both O and A were small at their anatomy scan. However, the head was measuring about 5 days ahead, and the legs were 2 days behind. Sounds like A. The baby moved like crazy during the sonogram, too! The tech had a hard time getting measurements because he was so busy! Sounds a LOT like A.
Another neat thing was that I discussed my birth plan with my OB today. I was a little worried what she would have to say since she's referred to down here as the "C-section queen". She's very conservative in terms of risk, etc. Anyway, she was all for what I wanted to do. She even suggested that I ask for one of the hospital rooms that has the wireless monitoring system (only two rooms currently do). I said I was okay with an IV, etc. and she said she's not opposed to just an IV site and only using fluids if needed. THAT is a total answer to prayer, too! I really want a natural birth this time, but I really DIDN'T want to change OB's. I love mine, so I didn't want to give her up. But, I don't have to! Yay!
Other notable news- I may have a kidney stone. Again. I had 2 with O's pregnancy. Not.fun. But, the OB gave me a prescription in case of an attack. That's nice to have on hand. I lost a pound since my last visit. But, that could've been my lack of breakfast. :)
Well, there you have it! A healthy, baby boy. Testosterone is on the rise in our house.
