I told myself I was not going to cry at the ultrasound. Right after I had an appt for another consult with mfm (high risk) and then another appt with genetics counseling to discuss the medications I still have to take throughout pregnancy or I'd be putting mine and the babys life at risk.
Well maybe I should of scheduled the ultrasound last appointment of the day... but impatient me when given the choice opted to see baby first as I just couldn't wait. As soon as that screen lit up showing hubby and I our little miracle in the making it was like a light switch and he water works started pouring!! The lady who did the sonogram started crying and getting emotional over me so emotional. I couldn't help it, seeing how much this precious life grew in the matter of a few weeks and seeing him/her wave away at us melted my heart. The baby was very active, a strong heart rate of 158, (my first sonogram heart rate was 174) our little peanut looked amazing and the Dr came in to take measurements of the neck, skin, ect ect and said our beautiful baby looked healthy as can be. He then took a peek between the legs, now Im only 12wks2days so it's still too early to confirm gender but when Dr did him and he lady who started he sonogram asked if when it was time to tell would we want to know the sex, and we both said yes we could not wait nine months, at the same time Dr and the lady said "My good guess is you are going to have a little boy" they both looked at eachother and laughed as neither knew they were both going to say the same thing so excited to tell us there "educated guess" they showed us why they hink that. Its still too early to confirm but they both had the same idea and are pretty sure. Im not going to put my mind set on a boy just yet though. I cried my eyes out. When I hit my second trimester it will be right around my dads birthday. I have been looking for a cute grandpa frame to put a copy of the picture in (anyone know of anywhere I can find a nice cute gender neutral one??) And we are planning on when we have our yearly huge family dinner for his birthday giving him the frame to open in front of everyone to reveal we are pregnant!!!!
Mfm went pretty well. They still want to see me more frequently and have more frequent sonograms to check baby (ok by me Im happy to see our little love as often as possible)
Genetic Counseling, my biggest feared appt as of lately went so much better than I thought would. I have been so depressed and heart broken really beating myself up feeling like a horrible mother that I have to take medications while pregnant. I wanted to be the normal pregnancy only prenatal vitamin nothing else medication, but serious circumstances have made it impossible. Without certain medications I would not live and would suffer tremendously. This has been eating at me. Well I was told all my meds I am on are completely baby safe with very little to no risk (all my specialists knew we were trying and put me on baby safe meds due to that but I was still in fear and beating myself up) They also said the meds I was on, the little rare risks that could of caused issue would be first trimester issues, being Im less than a week away from second trimester and baby looks amazing they feel theres no need to worry!! Im still uneasy about it but feel a lot better. I just can't wait for our little miracle to be from my stomache to inside my arms <3

Aww so cute!!!!  Glad everything is ok. Don't beat yourself up about taking medication.. It's what you have to do to help make things better and easier for you and baby (boy). ;)  Why do they think your preciousness is a boy??  :)  Just curious. :)

So cute!
We did a picture frame that was recordable and recorded the heartbeat onto it (using my doppler). It was very gender neutral, cream colored frame that said "celebrate family"

We gave it on Sunday as an early Valentines gift to my parents. They were thrilled, and my mom kept playing the hb over and over :)

Here's a link to the frame we used. Not grandpa-specific, but it worked for us! Sorry I can't make it clicky from mobile:

Thank you all so much!!! I was so nervous at the appointments but once I got to see baby I was so calmed but over emotional. It's relieving seeing our little miracle growing so fast and looking so cute. It's funny how it looks like he/she is inside a heart as my first ultrasound which I posted a few weeks ago looked as though the baby was shaped like a heart :-) Putting first sonogram up now so you guys can see

By the way they explained it to me it was pretty much the nub theory. When hey got between his/her legs, the "nub" was sticking straight up big time!!! The lady had three boys of her own and said all three looked just how ours did. The Dr has only been wrong twice since working in this office. But ImI'm still not setting my heart on a boy until confirmation :)
