The baby is a....


Today Ben & I got to see the baby for our anatomy scan. They looked at all of the organs and said everything looks good. They also measured my cervix since 19 weeks is when I started to have issues with the boys, but everything looks great so far. I will go back for a fetal echo cardiogram on January 5 which is a few days after we get home from FL. This scan is done to take a close look at the heart since my Diabetes puts the baby at a slightly higher risk for heart defects, but as of today it looks good. I look forward to getting to see the baby again!

Ben was definitely disappointed we are not having a little girl. We made the decision before getting pregnant that this will be our last baby so I plan to have my tubes tied during the c-section when I deliver this baby. He is very happy that this baby is healthy and things look great. I will admit some disappointment as well since Ben & my mom had done a good job of convincing me this was going to be a girl. But deep down I love the idea of having another boy! We had a girl name picked out very easily, but now have to go back to the drawing board to come up with a boy name. We have both thrown around a few names, but none that we could agree on.
