16 weeks - Baby HeShe is stubborn!

Happy Wednesday!! Sorry I haven't sent updates in a few weeks, but we didn't have much news to share. Unfortunately, this week is no different. This child is keeping its identity a closely guarded secret. The cord is in between its legs and it likes to sit Indian style with its feet tucked under its butt. The pictures attached are the best we could do this week - I think it's laughing at us. It's only week 16 though and most people don't find out for a few more weeks. The tech is leaning towards girl this week, but I'm not buying pink until I see a clear picture with no penis present.

Regarding health....all is well. Baby looks great and I am fine too. I'll keep you posted as things progress! Thanks for all of your thoughts and prayers!

Love to all...

13 weeks and 5 days

Not much news this week! The baby is truly ours - very stubborn. I'm pretty sure she/he comes by it rightly. We were anticipating being able to see its butt this week, but apparently the baby was not on the same page! I've attached some good face pictures - the details are kind of crazy! Randi (our ultrasound friend) said its fingers are super long...maybe a piano player and/or a ball player! Everything with the baby looks great! All is still well with my cervix too...yeah! The only problem at this point is that my placenta is blocking the cervix - something called placenta previa. It will more than likely move, but if it doesn't we will have a c-section for sure.

So, put up a few prayers that the placenta gets with the program and goes where it is supposed to!

Love to all! Our appt next week is Wednesday morning, so maybe he/she will be a little more cooperative in the a.m.
