Yup, it's a boy for CERTAIN!

So now the name crunch is on... hmmm. Patrick and I have always been slow namers, Ahna was baby girl for an hour, we had no idea what we were going to name her as I was heading to the hospital. Sarenna was named a couple days before, as we combined all our favorites...

In other baby news, he weighs 1 lb. 1 oz, is breech and sitting on top of my placenta, which in turn is sitting very low on my cervix. This is causing all kinds of pressure, so the doc wants me to be cautious and not be lifting things over 15 lbs temporarily. Additionally, their is a cyst on our little man's brain. Dr. Martin said not to stress over it, that 5 % of babies 18-22 weeks in the womb do develop this exact cyst as spinal fluid is being produced here.. and that most of these babies cysts disappear by the time they hit 28 weeks in the womb. Sooo, I will have another ultrasound at that time. And then at 30 weeks I will have a 4D image scan (yay!) , and then another ultrasound at 37 weeks because they want to determine whether I will need a C section or not. I had complications during Ahna's birth, and she was nearly 10 lbs... so they think our son will weigh more, and therefore... duh, duh, duhhhhhhh. We will see.

Anyhoo! All is well in baby land so far, continued prayers would be appreciated friends! Love you all!

By the way, doesn't my son have the most beautiful lips??? I am not biased. And I can't wait to smooch him.
Pin It!

Soooo cute!
4D, how does that even work? It should be fun to see all angles.
Good luck with the name hunting and I hope your pregnancy goes well!

I was beginning to wonder after you last post about baby news...thought maybe the tech was wrong! LOL

glad for you (and Patrick) that it's still a boy! :)
