It’s another boy!
From what I can tell, with all my layman’s knowledge of radiology, the baby seems healthy. I’m also basing that assumption on the fact that I did NOT hear any “hmmmm’s” or “uh-oh’s” or sucking in of breath that might indicate the sonographer saw something bad or unusual. Of course, we’ll find out for certain after the radiologist looks at all the images, and my OB looks at them all and they make their final educated guess. The sonographer did mention the baby was measuring bigger than my current due date of May 23rd, and that the measurements were suggesting a due date of May 17th (a mere two days prior to my original due date of the 19th). However, again, the doctor will need to decide if they will move my date back now that this little boy is measuring 2 days bigger than the calendar-calculated due date like his older brothers did. I sure hope she does decide to push back the due date because this kid appears to be on-track to be another 8+ pounder.
Meanwhile, I’m thinking of soothing my mild disappointment with a little retail therapy. Considering how many hand-me-downs this boy is destined to get, I’d like for him to have a few new items bought just for him.
p.s. I promise to add in scans of the sonogram pictures as soon as I can get my scanner to cooperate.
