It's a...

It the suspense killing you? It's a boy! Today's visit went really well! Everything looked good for the most part. The doctor did want to watch a couple of things. She said my placenta was low (she didn't mention placenta previa, but after a little research online :) that's the basic gist of it) which meant that I wouldn't be able to deliver naturally if it doesn't move and they would schedule a c-section. Since I didn't have a c-section with Landree the unknown is the scary part, but I'm not going to sweat over this. It can totally still move and if not we'll be scheduled which is fine for my Type A personality too. And the other thing she wants to watch is a foci that they found on his heart. It's basically a bright spot they noticed and she said that they just want to watch it. It could just be a place where his heart has grown a little fast. She was very positive about it and I'm going back for an ultrasound in 3 weeks. She said even if it stays that way they would just want to do an ultrasound on his heart after he's born to check everything out and let our pediatrician know. We are confident that this will clear up, but specific prays for that would be great!

We are so excited! A realtor called about showing our house this morning and I had to tell her no. It's a mess! Jeff was out of town all weekend and we rented movies and just hung out last night. Now it's time to get busy cleaning! They are coming tomorrow. I'm praying for a long nap and lots of productivity on my part. All I really want to do is take a nap! Plus I have lots of blog makeovers I need to be working on! So off I go! No more internet time for me this afternoon!

Jen,

Congrats on the little boy! They are sweet and lovey to their mom's. As far as the placenta previa, we see this all the time and you do have plenty of time for it to resolve (move as your uterus grows). Prayers will be said for you and the baby. Can't believe that you are already 20 weeks. Seems like you just announced your pregnancy. Take care and get plenty of rest.

Oh my goodness! You must be over the moon! Congratulations!

I have only had c-sections so I don't know the difference! They worked for my Type A personality too!

Hope you have a great week!

himee said...

Yay for boys! So excited for you!!! I will be praying for the issues you mentioned!

Julie said...

Woohoo! I've been eagerly awaiting the news!

Jeff and Megan said...

YEA FOR BOYS!! I am so pumped you will be a boy mom with me!! Love you!

Jennifer said...

A boy! What a sweet surprise. We are praying for you and the baby. God will take care of you both. The issue that arose on Carter's ultrasound ended up being nothing but in the long run it saved his life when he had to have his surgery. So, God is good and we'll be praying for your precious boy and you.

Congrats!! How nice, Kamree must be so excited to be having a little brother!

I had two c-sections too, they say the recovery is the same either way and the good part is that you know when it's going to happen! No contractions or anything, you go in and a half hour later you have your baby!

Jonni said...

Congratulations honey! YAY, a precious little boy and little brother for Landree. I know everything will go great with the delivery but I know what you mean about planning, I am a Type-A too. So happy to hear the good news sweetie. :)

Hugs,
Jonni
