It's a......

....well, we don't REALLY know for sure yet. While the doctor was doing the ultrasound, he THOUGHT he saw what he referred to as a "peepee". But his ultrasound machines are kinda old and grainy, and it could have been ANYTHING in between his legs, as far as I'm concerned. It could have been umbilical cord. So, until my next visit, when I'll have another ultrasound, this baby will be a BUPO-- boy until proven otherwise*.

*BUPO term borrowed from another blog I read called No Swimmers in the Tubes, No Buns in the Oven. ... rather funny gal!

So, I figured if I didn't write some stuff about my pregnancy, I'd look back and be sad, like I am with my pregnancy with little M. I had like 230498098 blogs going on, and not nearly enough writing about what was going on in my pregnancy. I kept a pretty good log for a little while after he was born on my myspace blog, but even gave that up after a while. *le sigh* anyway...

Baby is measuring two days ahead of my counter down at the bottom of the page, so that would make baby @ 13 weeks, 3 days gestation. I'm not sick, although I still have a few minutes of queasy every now and then. I haven't thrown up. I can feel my tummy expanding/getting harder, but I can't really visibly SEE it yet. I guess that's what I get for having fat rolls, eh? heh. I have a doctor's appointment on July 29th, and the doctor said we'd probably be able to find out the sex by then. Where once I was rather impressed with this new doctor, now I'm kinda wishing I had never switched. I thought I wanted it to be a more liberal experience... not so rigid and here's-what-we're-going-to-do,live-with-it. But I'm finding myself kinda craving that structure of last time. They didn't try to listen to the heartbeat last time, although it was admittedly a little early, but I remember them trying to listen to the heartbeat at my second appointment at my old doctor's office. (and they found it, too!) This new doctor is still nice, but something I can't stand (and the old doctor did this too sometimes) is when a doctor's in the exam room with you, and in this case, with a wand up in no-no land doing a transvaginal ultrasound, they start talking to the nurse about STUFF THAT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH YOU. In this case, it was about his son and how his ex-wife is corrupting him, and how he wished he would come live with him, and blah blah blah. Not paying attention to my baby on the screen, not paying attention to me at all...

Anyway, enough rambling. My pregnancy is going well so far. Hopefully that continues to be the case. :)

First Friday, part deux

Here's a pic of my son getting ready to take his FIRST car ride ever... September 1, 2007. :)
