It's a.......

It's a.......
















GIRL!!!!!!
We had a great ultrasound. First we did the anatomy scan which took about 30 minutes. Everything looked perfect. The doctor came in to talk to us because he had to leave and go deliver a baby. He mainly wanted to tell us about swine flu and for us to call if we even thought we had been around someone who had it. Since he interrupted the ultrasound the tech forgot to make our video. She said that we could either do it when we came back or go to the nurse and then she would come get us after her next patient. We chose to wait so we could get the video. We went back in and got to see our baby for 15 more minutes. She is perfect!!!

When we left the Dr we went to pick up balloons. I got black balloons and pink confetti. On our way home I put confetti in the balloons and blew them up. We went to my parent's house first and let them pop their balloons. It was awesome when the confetti exploded everywhere. A perfect way to tell them. We then told my mom that we were giving the baby her middle name...I think it meant a lot to her!! Our baby girl is going to be called McKenzie Joy!! After that we watched the video;) Next we went to Brandon's sister's house and let her pop her balloon!! We then made our rounds to Brandon's dad's house. We had told his mom right after the Dr's appointment. She met us in the parking lot because she is in nursing school right now. All in all it went great. Everyone was really excited. I will post the pics of everyone popping their balloons when I can..I forgot the camera at my SIL's house.
We are so excited to know what we are having and can't wait to hold her in our arms!!!

Congratulations on your baby Girl!!! Katie (Once upon a time) referred me to your blog and I am so glad to have found you! I had massive bleeding (and passed a 2 inch clot) yesterday (Subchorionic Hematoma) and have been so freakin scared (I am 7w3d)... you give me a lot of hope!

Good Egg Hunting said...

Awwww...congratulations! Am so excited for you. Doesn't it make it so much more real to know what you're having?? I actually have to go back in this morning b/c they didn't get good enough pics of one side of the baby's heart due to his position last week. So we get to see him again! Anyway, congratulations again -- glad you got the chance to share the news in such a creative way with family.

Thanks for your comment! Yes, I will definitely be bothering you with some questions. Sorry if these are a repeat (I tried to go through your older posts, but I might have missed some details)! Did you have to extend your progesterone supplements? I graduate (to an OB) this Friday and I feel like I am in a limbo as far as monitoring is concerned if something comes up! Were you monitored more frequently? From all the info that you might have collected and through all the doc visits, does a hematoma put you in a high risk category (in my case it is also twins)? My clot was never seen on any of the u/s... did they notice anything before you started bleeding? I will be speaking with my RE tomorrow, so I am hoping that will help me ease my mind! :) Thanks for your help! {HUGS}
