It's a BOY!!--September '08

When I arrived back into town from St. George and after the whole scare with my pregnancy, I went to my OB for a followup appointment. Luckily things still looked good, and she told us that most likely the subchorionic hemorrhage would resolve itself by the end of my pregnancy. Well when she was doing the ultrasound the baby was moving a ton and I said to our doctor, "is there anyway you can tell us what we are having?" She said she could try and then pointed to something on the screen and said, "do you see that, normally little girls don't have those." I couldn’t believe it! She told us she wasn't 100% sure, but that we could pretty much plan on having a BOY! Unbelievable! So in a matter of a couple of weeks we thought we were miscarrying and then we found out we weren't and that we were going to have a boy! Of course Jake was/is ecstatic, and I was surprised but kind of not surprised because this pregnancy has been SO different than my pregnancy with Abby, our little boy has given me a run for my money!

The rest of our September was pretty mellow, people thought we dropped off the face of the earth because we got back from St. George and got settled and then Abby and I got sick, and Jake was gone a ton for hunting/work trainings (20 out of the 30 days!) ,but we survived and were excited for Fall to come!

I am so happy to hear that your pregnancy is safe and back on track. That is so scary. I am thrilled to hear you are doing well. Soooo excited for the boy news. You gotta give us hints on names you like, if you dare.
Happy Thanksgiving.

I have been wondering what happened to you! I am glad that things worked out well with the pregnancy and I think that is so fun that you are going to have a boy! Is Marci coming into town for Thanksgiving or Christmas? If she is, maybe we should try and get another breakfast or lunch together! I would love to see you girls again - especially with your cute bellies!

Hooray for little boys!! You better get some energy stored up for when he gets older. Boys are rowdy. I am so happy that everything is okay. Things like that are so scarey! Take Care of yourself!!
