It's a little person in there!

Spending an hour yesterday looking at Bubba from all different angles makes me feel like I've gotten to know the little person growing inside me a little bit better.


Everything went well and all major organs were well within limits. Major relief. The femurs measured almost a week ahead but we're both tall people so no big surprise there :) Heartbeat was strong at 159 bpm.  Placenta was posterior, so that explains me feeling a lot of movement early. Bubba was head down low during the whole hour and only moved arms and legs leisurely. Cervix measured 3.5 cm, which is shorter than the baseline but I'm trying not to worry until I get to speak to Dr. Swedish. Ha!


When it came time to find out what flavor Bubba is, our tech ran in to some difficulty. Bubba's legs were tightly closed at all times and would not give us even a little sneak peek. Until I went to the bathroom and danced a little mambo. When I laid back down, the tech quickly placed the wand on my belly and for a moment we caught a glimpse before the legs closed again.


Diver Dude jumped out of his chair and cheered loudly only to immediately after have big tears fill his eyes. Choked up he managed to whisper: "Munchkin, we're having a son". The tech confirmed with a smile and told us congratulations. I was immediately so filled with happiness I couldn't say a word.


Bubba is a boy.


We're having a son.


Yes, there's a tiny pee-pee in me and Diver Dude is not only OK with it, he's happy about it! In any other context that would be the weirdest sentence ever :) 

I'm in love.

  7. OMG!!! A boy! I'm so happy for you! (I'd be happy if it was a girl, too, but I'm happy for you to know what you're expecting!). I have to say that (at least so far) being a mother to a son is pretty fantastic.

  13. Woohooo for a little boy!! i think I'm having a boy too we'll see. And I'm not sure if it's of any reassurance by my cervix at the 20 week scan was also 3.5cm (maybe 3.6 if I really wanted to see it longer) and the tech said it was perfect. I'm sure you remember I was not convinced anyhow but at 28 weeks tomorrow it's holding tight!! I'm sure it's perfectly normal in your case too. Big hugs and so so so happy for you!

  21. CP - the App I was talking about is called "Total Baby"...it's 4.99 and has saved me in trying to remember when I fed or changed him last! You can track all sorts of things on there too. :) Also great for when the doc asks you how many wet/poopy diapers etc. Priceless!
