So, I apologize for being so late on all the news you've been waiting to here. There is lots to share and a winner to announce.
First off, Emily had her first Dentist appointment last week. She was very excited to go and Izabel helped keep her focus on the good parts. She was a real trooper going in but still wanted to squirm a little during the exam. Not nerves really, but there were so many other things to look at. hahaha!
She does have some areas that need attention. Not as bad as Izzy's first check up was, but still enough to show concern. They have scheduled her for dental surgery in May.
I attended another ultrasound last Friday to check on our little Gummy Bear. It was one of the longest appointments ever in the history of all three of my pregnancy's. LOL! Eventually I made it back to the office and got to go in and see my little GB.
The baby looks great and is growing quite well. GB weighed in at 10 ounces solid. Kidneys, bladder, heart, spine and brain all looked great as well. It was so good to listen to the heart rate, which came in at 162bpm.
While we did check all of those extra special phycial aspects out, it actually happened much later in the appointment. The first thing that popped up on the screen when the tech put the wand to my tummy, was this...
Yes, Gummy Bear is a BOY who had no problem's with modesty. I was shocked and asked the tech over and over again if she was sure. lol! I was honest-to-goodness sure it was a girl. Everyone is very excited to bring a boy into our family. Even my little Princesses are starting to accept the fact that this little baby isn't a girl.
We have names circling and I am honestly saddened that I can't call him by a name yet. With both girls we knew the name before we knew their gender. Hopefully I'll be able to call him his name soon, which of course I will share with you.
