15w 5d

pregnancy cartoon

Well, I had wanted to post yesterday, but our internet was on the fritz. For the past week I've kept thinking I had felt the baby flutter a little, but I kept brushing it off as my imagination. Well, yesterday he was moving all about and there was no doubt that I was feeling little baby flutters. I just love this part of pregnancy... I'm going to try to enjoy the next 2 or 3 months and then the end-all hell will set in and I'll be miserable LOL!

Ryan and I are still discussing names. I think we're kind of getting settled on a name, although I told him I still don't want to commit yet.

I had a doctor's appointment today. Pretty uneventful. Heartbeat was 150bpm. I gained another 5lbs. Fun stuff. The doctor said I was measuring on time (I think they have me at 14 weeks, but the sonograms measure the baby to be close to 16 weeks by this point). I told Dr. P that my mom had scanned me a few times and we knew the gender of the baby, and he said "Oh well, its still early" as if I'm insane or something and hadn't seen the obvious penis inbetween the little guys legs. Oh well. Our "official" ultrasound is January 11th. Man, I'd have died waiting that long to find out! LOL!

Doesn't that look like an obvious boy to you?

It definitely looks like a boy.

I am anxious to hear the final decision on names. :)

I had a friend who worked in OBGYN office and heard many stories of moms wanting to find out so early.... most doctors stand firm to the fact that what you see is not always what you get this early on.
Look at these pictures.

Not that I'm trying to get your hopes up, but can you see why your Dr. might not want to bet money on it quite yet?

and keep in mind that if you are 14/15 weeks, the fetal age is actually 12/13 weeks.

there are really cool pictures on that website if you look around... a real pic of baby at each week. Pretty amazing.
